Very cool Trojan. Good luck with the trimming.
What looks good, normally flies good. I am sure it will be the case!

Been waiting a long time to scratch this particular itch.  A Walthew MK II by Roland Scott.

Unballasted weight is 49g which, given the bare bones weight, is a bit higher than I was hoping for but with a bit of luck I'll get an AUW no heavier than the high fifties which shouldn't be too bad.

Very windy here today and the news from the met. wallahs isn't good so I've no idea when I'll be able to trim and or fly it, but at least the grass is coming back on the Lurker Industries Aerodrome so when I do get a chance to test it I won't be launching it onto "concrete".

It looks very period Lurk. It's easy to see why that under camber was a real test of covering skills.

Looks like we might just get a calm this evening. Fingers xed.

It does doesn't it?  It's difficult to see in the photographs but the shape and symmetry of the fuselage is really, really pleasing, at least to me.  The concave wing isn't too bad, it helps enormously that it's a constant chord wing.  I just struck unlucky with one panel which gave me an excellent opportunity to indulge in my other favourite hobby, grumbling.  Smiley   I'm not sure I'd class this as a beginner's model though.  Perhaps in the context for which it was designed, i.e. a club with experienced builders on hand to offer help and guidance, but not, I think, one for an unsupported ab initio builder.

Hi Lurker!  That Wakthew MKII  is a really nice  Shocked   parasol wing glider.    Or are you going to  put a prop into it?  It really does look "period".   And the big undercamber of the ribs is very attractive.  Not the easiest thing to do.   Good luck with the wind.  I will be ready to fly again tomorrow, but the wind is  forecast to be 12 mph gusting to 19 mph for tomorrow ... so no flying for me  ...  Undecided

Burn the heretic!! Smiley  Nah.

Mr Scott drew up plans (search Outerzone for Walthew) for a rubber powered version of the same basic airframe, but I think that the changes that were necessary to turn it into a successful rubber powered flyer robbed it of its elegance.  However if you are into vintage designs the 1950 Aero Modeller article (also Outerzone) describing the rubber powered variant reports some very impressive flight times even for the reinforced airframe (i.e. heavyweight) variation for beginners which is what was published.

Hello John, and I bet yours wasn’t laser cut either.  Nice kit.  Good plans and balsa.

T-28A, from a prototype short kit by PT Aviation.  24" span, tissue finish, just under 54g balanced without the rubber.  Need to finalize a freewheeler and attach the prop, then it's ready for trimming.

Mike

Mike, Great detail on the Trojan. Back in 1973 I saw a lot of them in Pensacola as advanced trainers and others being reworked after returning shot up from VN.

Today I would buy one if I could. They would make a great 2 seater.

No KeilKraft original - print and strip wood. I made the mistake of not selecting hard strips for the longerons - it had a few dips along the fuse!
This also helped it's demise when due to a bad launch it hit the ground with quite a few turns - the prop stopped and the fuselage rotated! Smiley
I've always intended to build another as it did show signs of flying nicely.
Good luck with yours.

 Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin  time to git off my butt and show what i've been up to

i'm writibng a book on making model planes for my two grandkids so my knowledge won't be lost when i'm gone.
the four planes are
easybilt p40  shows half shell construction, building wings separately and mounting them to fuselage
comet clould buster (guillows Flyboy)  shows box fuselage
blue ridge special  shows stick fuselage, movable wing position and diagonal wing construction
flying aces hellcat neo dime  shows box and former and pass thru wing with wing as one piece.

i pack a lot into one plane Roll Eyes

all planes fly just fine Cool

book will show step by step details on doing it one pic is a thousand words.

A new Coupe, devoid of anything innovative or clever. It's essentially a Baron Knight but everything thinned down to reduce drag, including the section. Weighs 73g - no beacon yet.

A very nice looking coupe, well done! What prop are you using, or is it one based on Gavin's?

I've not forgotten the prop design you asked about, but haven't managed to track down the drawing! Are you going to the Coupe de Brum, as I hope to get to N Luffenham (if my chum gives me a lift)?

Hello Peter
Yes it's still Gavin's prop. I fear the boom will move the balance point back so the wing will have to go with it. I don't know what people do about that. I could have put the RDT forward but that brings its own problems.
Yes I'll be there

Hi Peter/Bill

When are both dates please? It's about time I brought my models out of retirement and flew them. Nice looking model by the way.

All the best, Tony
