Very Nice Roman.  I love the Redwing, it's such a super little model.

Thanks everybody Smiley

Crabby, its a Frog Redwing. Your can find the plan here: http://www.houseoffrog.co.uk/senior_plans.htm You have to scroll down, its the last plane on the site.
As Andrew sad, its a super little model and doesnt take much time to build. It is ideal to build and fly with children since it is sturdy enough to survive some hard landings or failed take-offs...

I just came back from the field. I wanted to use the nice weather for some first trim flights. Trimming is straight forward. Find the CG, adjust thrust angle if necessary and give some more turns.
Here are the flight pics.

Hope you all had such a nice weekend as I had!

That looks terrific in flight Roman. No matter how hard he tries the pilot can't escape the dragon behind him Smiley
Not a bad looking dragon as well.

I have recently finished building this Guillows Cessna 150 as a present for my flying instructor, MTM is one of his personal aeroplanes that i have done all my training in. Im pretty pleased with how its turned out, probably my best yet.

I would like to build a C-152, but never found a nice plan. Your C-150 is close to it Smiley

Bill, Yes it has been airbrushed in Tamiya acrylic with the stripes masked with yellow Tamiya tape which i highly recommend. Being a gift i have just made it as a static model, its to heavy to fly well with the stock Guillows wood anyway. I dont know what the reason behind the checkers is, possibly just an interesting alternative from a solid black panel. 
rgroener, Thanks yes i believe the 150 and the 152 are very similar in looks with the 152 having a slightly different cowling for the lycoming engine instead of the earlier Continental powered 150

Wingspan is 13", Weight, not including rubber is 20.0 grams. Pilot's name is Luigi. Build thread is in a Cookup over on Stick&Tissue: http://www.stickandtissue.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1478218959

 Grin i am now working on a rebuild of the guillows corsair The X F4U version .  This is a second kick at the cat for it.  I will be testing a method to ayttach wing spar to body so wings can be slotted in. THE INSTRUCTIONS O THE PAN AND THIS STYE OF BUILD DIDN'T LEND ITSELF MUCH TO ATTACHING WINGS.

my hospital patients are all comfy and will be flighted next week.

After 30+ yrs of this design (Texaco 13) it was
time to upgrade the prints, refine the laser cuts,
rework the fuselage structure and tissue printing,
Texaco now has new life.

 Grin I really got creative  Roll Eyes HEE HEE HEE Roll Eyes  
 
background    a short while ago over at stick and tissue.com ( YES HPA I'm cheating on you but only with my eyes.) IN THE NAME THAT PLANE  section someone posted a picture of the one off VEGA STARLINER  i thought neat looking plan . i wouldn't mind doing it.  Well a couple of weeks ago, They started a cook up over on [email protected]  there is a plan available through Comet but try and find it (see Volare products for the short kit) so i decided to do my own sketch.  thanks to some documentation from a couple of sources, i got a photo of the real thing, dimensions and three view details. since the comet plan was 25 inches wing span, i did my calcs and here's what i came up with.

enjoy. it is now ready for flight test and trim.

 Grin  This sucker turns hard left no matter what I Do to correct.  I have warped wing tips to raise left wing, put in right thrust but they are not effective  Is my rudders tail too small?

There is a lot of ragged tissue along the LE of the left wing (can't see the right wing) that might be creating a LOT of drag.  Running a bit of sandpaper (280 grit is good) lightly, just behind where the upper tissue overlaps the lower, and then peeling off the ragged parts will smooth things over.  Re-seal the seam with a smear of dope or thinned glue applied with a finger.

Nice subject!

 Grin Grin  Actually the rudder wasn't aligned!  I went to shed nite and that was the first thing my guru noticed  so we straightened it out.  That didn't quite fix it the wing still fell off at the end of the flight. Then at 2 am I got a brain wave..is the left wing heavier than the right? or visa versa?  a glob of clay on the right wing gotb the plane to fall to the right so i'm on to something.

A few small brads in the right wingtip should cure it.

Here's my latest I've been working on for a couple of months now. It's an Avia S92, the Czech version of the Me262. It is exactly the same as the 262 but different color schemes that I preferred. Anyway, it is a twin rubber powered jet. All I have to do now is work on the front ends for each nacelle. I have the props already. Two hand carved balsa props that turn in opposite directions. The wingspan is 27.5" and the props are 6.5" each. Should have half a chance to fly. I'll wait for the safety of tall grass to try it out though.
