HI All,
I started out trying to build and fly Joe Ott models, but never could get one to fly, the question I have is did anyone get one of his models to to fly? this is one I tried to fly.

Bob, Looks like a neat model, a Stuka. Friend of mine built one, but I think it was a radio controlled one. Don't know why the Ott models shouldn't fly at least a little. Even bricks fly with the proper tweaking. Grin

Wonder if they had enough dihedral, washout and enough rubber. This is something that I hope a knowledgeable person will eventually answer for you. I am just a novice at this hobby, rarely flying what I build. The build is the funnest part for me. Smiley Please let us see what you'e built when you do.

The Stuka is actually a pretty good subject. The trouble is that it requires some thought to get the weight down to the proper level, and you have to be willing to put in enough dihedral. The nose is plenty long, and the only real problem is that below a certain size, the highly tapered wing loses efficiency. So long as it's built to at least a 25" span, it would be a competitive subject for WWII...as long as that stupid 15% motor rule isn't used!

I have several of these old models in my collection and have been studying them...the ones I have all got some sort of hard wood in them that is not balsa also a lot of the out lines and formers are made of cardboard seems i read somewhere it was called bristol board... seems these kits were made during the world war two era anyway I plan on having a go at one soon Grin

A couple of pictures of the fuselage formers and wing ribs that came with a couple my joe ott kits... the Curtiss parts are all printed on real thin bass wood? the Vought parts are on cardboard except for the wing ribs.

I have had several of these pass through my hands over the years. The vary first model that I ever tried to build was a Comet P-47 with the cardboard formers. I managed to get the fuselage complete only to find out that all the ribs were not there. I had gotten the kit from a neighbor boy and he had started it and lost several of the ribs. At that time I was about 9 years old and had no idea how to generate the missing parts so that was the end of my first build! I do still remember the dents in my finger caused by the single edged razor blade that I used to cut out the cardboard parts. Several years ago I managed to get one of these kits with the cardboard formers but have not started to build it. I guess I should sometime soon while I still can. Undecided

Dents? You only had dents?

All my early modeling was done with double-edged blades. I had more than dents .... :'(

Reply on #6. Just shows they were WW 2 kits. All the balsa was being used for flotation devices. Cleveland kits also had cardboard. My fingers were chewed up quite badly trying to cut out the parts. The last one I built with cardboard formers and wing ribs was the Cleveland Condor Soarer, what a tedious build.

Awesome build. Can you post the plans and parts? I have seen some old timers build these kits using balsa and they flew great.
