Dear friends,
in spite of my age I love informatics, so I underwent the hard (lie!!) work to build a new home page, which can be read easily on the nowadays nearly exclusively used "smart"phones. Under the page "Aeromodelling"you will see some of my latest projects, practically all "oldtimers"like me. I shall be happy if you would give me a feed back on one or the other model.
Your always busy Kurt

I nearly forgot my home page: www.kurt-rio.com (the address has not changed)

Wow, I see a lot of interests that parallel mine.

About those old timer, what are you using to cover with? It looks like they have much the same structure as the original. I ask as the originals often relied on the doped tissue or silk for torsional stiffness.

I love seeing the balsa structure through the transparent film, definitely not a foamy bird!

All the best,
Konrad

Dears Glenn, Konrad, John and Scott,
thank you for your kind words. A word about covering: really in the old times I covered my models with Japan paper and dope, silk was too expensive for me and too difficult to find. To tell the truth, it was not even Japan paper, but stiif, thick and heavy post-war german covering paper, quite horrible! Only for the competition model V-51 I succeeded in getting some Japan paper, which by accident, wrong choice of the dope, became yellow and transparent. Today I use the light and transparent polyester foil from Oracover, which is very easy to work on and looks good. My structures are stiff enough to support this covering, which is of course much more flexible than paper.
Happy flying to all,
Kurt

Nice looking website! Kurt, I saw your foam ME109 who made it? I was just given one very similar. It was a case I take it or it goes into the rubbish bin so I saved it.

My foam replica of the Me 109 was built from a kit from a czech company whose name I forgot. Their models were very detailed and true scale, but the material is oldfashioned styro foam, so I did not dare to fly it in spite of having equipped it with all rc components. I think the company does not exist any more, smashed by the asiatic mass production of EPO foam models, which you can find typically at Hobby King.

Kurt, I was just looking at the box and this one is from a Czech Company named "Flying Styro Kit", sound familiar at all?  I still don't know what to do with it.
