A few days ago is started building the Evans Volksplane VP-1 at pistachio size. I used the drawing made by Gert Brendel. I know a lot of people have this drawing. If you contact Gert or me we can give you the finished drawing with all the dimensions and details. As you can see on the picture I already finished the stabilizer, rubber and the 2 fuselage sides. Next step is the painstaking process of building the fuselage together.

Finally found the time to do some more building. This time I builded one of the wings. The second is still on the building board and finished soon.

Thank you for the compliment.

Still busy with the other wing, but had some other things that needed my attention. But hopefully I can do some building coming weekend. Fot those interested the weight of the stabiliser, rudder and 2 fuselage halfs is 0.194 grams. I will know the weight of the wing when I finish the other side.

Gert Brendel finished his drawing he started a few years. It's also the drawing I'm using for this model. Send me a private post with your emailadress so I can email you the drawing. Because I can't upload pdf files.

Finally found some time and inspiration to build a bit further on this model.

The pictures say more than words.

Quite a good subject from the build point of view Bernard - is it 8ins span or thereabouts?  I think I am beginning to get to grips with Peanut - but a bit ion a way to go. Pistachio seems quite a challenge - even for a brain or eye surgeon?  Clearly weight is even more critical - what are the dimensions please of the longerons for example?

A little plane with a huge 'charisma' factor... This beautiful example turned out for our local EAA fly-in a couple of months ago...
I especially like the raised turtledeck modification.

Usually 1/32nd sq. David. Sounds ridiculous, but you get used to handling them honestly Tongue

Yes the 1/32nd square sounds about right. Grin
