JIMMIE ALLEN SKY CHIEF goes to the AMA EXPO.... Howdy Builders and Flyers. Below is a couple of pics of my new JIMMIE ALLEN SKY CHIEF. It has a 41" wing, came out at 103g. Covered with Isaki tissue and sprayed with 2 coats of nitrate clear [50/50] and 1 coat of nitrate yellow. It is dedicated to  Milton Berle who made me laugh a lot and his TEXACO Comedy Hour.  For those of you who cannot remember black and white TV, this my not hit a bell. It's powered by 8 strands of 1/8 X 36" with a max wind @ 85% of break  at 1650w. It flew right off the board with NO TRIMMING.

I plan to enter it in the Exhibit contest at the AMA EXPO that begins today at the Ontario Convention Center. It will probably be the only free flight model in the exhibit. The 1st prize is $2000..... wish me luck..!!   r
