Didn't mean to double the pictures but I am still learning.  These two planes bring back so many wonderful memories of my Dad and I flying in the 1950's.  He would build little peanut tube one channel rx's and I would help build the birds.  One is a 65% Buzzard Bombshell and the other is a 90% Trenton terror.

Hey Fizzlestick.  Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. 
That is some very nice work you have done there.  How big is the a/c and what is it? 
It has very pretty lines and should do you proud when finished.

Most of my time has been taken up with a Bostonian cook up.  Here's a picture.

Hi Larry,
Its a Rocketeer A 40 inch span and will be electrified, hopefully weighing about 1 pound when (if ever) I finish it. Your Bostonian looks nice Larry. My daughter would like the stand out colours. Hope it fly's well for you. Cheers, Tony.

The little stinker flies nicely, but fast.  It has a fairly good slope to the glide but comes down fast.    Had some minor damage last flight but will not need much repair. 

I had a bit of luck today.  The local hobby shop is closing and I got a bunch of stuff for very low prices.  Of course with the models that I already have I estimate I will finish them all about ten years after I am dead.  Oh Well, I have two generations coming up to help.   

I am going to search Outerzone for the Rocketeer plans.  I may never get to it but it is nice to have the plans.

It's been my sad experience that the bargains you can pick up aren't worth losing the Local Shop. Two of them in the dozen years I've lived here.

Yes Art, The walk in model shop is getting harder to find these days. When I was young the local toy shop had a small model section at the back with plastic and balsa kits I would be able to afford occasionally. That shop is long gone. Tony.

I have to agree about the hobby shops closing.  Pretty soon we will have nothing but chain stores with a tiny selection of stuff.  I guess the day of the internet will help, but there is nothing like the personal interaction with a nice shop owner to get help or just chew the rag.
