Hi all,
I finally finished my 1/2A CL scale Fokker D VII from the old Sterling plans.  I had alot of trouble with the dope finish and have a post on another forum on that debacle.  But finally got it sorted out.  I used a combination of the old tried and true Aerogloss and Brodak.

Here are a few pictures.

Thanks to the Admin for setting up this CL scale forum for us.  I know I'm not the only scale guy out there. Am I?

Hi Frank,
   Very nice D7 you have there.  Flown her yet?  These old sterling plans
do come in handy for CL. I'm guessing that's an .049 Bebe under the cowling?

Thanks guys!

 Nope , not flown yet.  Still need to finish the lead outs and make a ballast box.  Yep, an 0.049, but a Golden Bee.  Just a bigger tank. Lol.  These old Sterling models fly really well for CL, but need pretty calm winds.

Now what to build next?   I'm thinking something with one wing, no struts and no stripes...

I doubt that I'll ever fly scale in competition -- but I like looking at people's projects.

I absolutely love the DVII....beautiful!  Wished I had the talent to make something like that, but I don't so I'll just look and enjoy others (like yourself) that do! Smiley

I think there are many C/L Scale guys, just unaware of the renewed interest (?)
Word gets out about this new site, "if you build it, they will come".

I'm optimistic about resuming the resto on my Stinson Reliant. (32" span formers and stringers, Hobbycraft kit, late '40s)
Interest waned when C/L Scale seemed to be a narrow sliver of history...

That's an eye catching effort. While not actually a scale nut I also enjoy seeing other people's efforts so good luck with the next one.
