A Fokker DII, modified Peter Rake design. 36", Mills 75. In retrospect I'm not too keen on the scheme, but the photo makes it look more nauseating than it is. I'm getting to the bottom of my pile of unfinished projects

Very nice work Mike and Bill. The rigging apart from the neat covering and finish, caught my eye Bill. It looks suitably in scale and is a quite visible black colour.

I just started a Headley rubber Fw47. I didn't know it was this big. Five days so far

Wasn't the Fw47 - the smaller one , causing you grief Bill? it's good to see a man determined to get the thing to fly.

It does have nice big wings.

Nice FW47 Bill. I have always liked aircraft from that era. Our FAC rules here tend to make most people shy away from designs like that because "they are not competitive". I beg to differ if they are done well.

Bill good going so fast! Here is my old FW47...I am redoing the starboard wing as we speak. Its 36" ws. Funny I just decided to get the thing back into the air, and you post yours today. As far as competitive, all I can say is Tom Hallman, who I usually can't compete with, watched an earlier FW47 of mine sail over the horizon, on a trim flight and was happy to see it go. If I was a believer in dethermalizers I would say this plane needs one. Good luck with your new attempt! I am in love with this plane as you might guess! keep us in the loop!

Just about finished with Comet Red Racer. Covered with red and white Esaki and then hand painted with Rust-Olium Painters Touch Multi Purpose Paint (lots of colours and £2 for 20ml). Only painted the top of wing and stab to save weight and as it stands with only rubber missing - 9.08 grams with WS of 12 3/4”. That landing gear adds a lot and makes it very nose heavy. Hence the 0.5’gram tail skid wire (and I think its still going to need some at the back) Carved 4 3/4” balsa propeller.  Very satisfying build.

That's a beautiful Zero. The structure looks almost delicate and very clean. I trust Ivan's judgement but the rear aileron spar to me looks like it may need care when covering.

I like all the formers for the stringers in the rear fuselage.

John, two out f three 'formers' are just little bits of 1/16" glued between and sanded to the curve. They are to support the tissue and reduce sag because he then smears the whole thing with light filler and sands smooth so the stringers can't be seen

Thanks Bill. That's a neat idea - very clever. The whole process wouldn't add much weight and it would certainly look more authentic.

No, it adds little weight and looks great but I wonder how much less filler weight there is to balance against the extra wood
