Trying to lose them on purpose has been liberating ... it's still early, haven't flown them all that much, so there are plenty of opportunities for future fly-aways. Haha.

John, you're probably right(!). Drat!

Fortunately, I've started building 2 Zweiboxes. Perhaps Hung will appreciate them ...?

The Zweibox is indeed a "big brother" to the Lunchbox. It's BIG!

My latest has been a long time coming! After a move across the country, new job, getting settled and all that it has been a couple of years since my last FF build.

This is the Sturdi-Built Heath Parasol from the plans gallery. It was very much a between projects project and didn't get the attention to little details that I normally like to do, but it sure was fun to be building again!

I made a few mods from the plans, most notably a sorta cracked rib wing construction and the later strut arrangement. Covering is colored Esaki with a couple of coats of thinned dope. The green was VERY old and gave me a bit of trouble, but the result is acceptable if a bit wrinkly in spots. Since the pics it has received control surface lines and a few rigging lines as well as proper wheels.

So far test glides and a few hand winds in the back yard show promise. Looking forward to actual trim flights!

Feels good to be building again!

A Matherat Les Trumeaux. It's very big, covered in Modelspan as per and is, remarkably for me, 75g. So was the original but mine has a tracker and timer so I'm pleased. Just needs some Halfords pink.

That looks lovely Bill, if the Birmingham Coupe is calm that should go beautifully. I think that you might need to be careful in strong lift though, that's very big and light to get down with just a tip-up tail.

Hi Gavin, I've spent five years trying to catch lift with coupes so I won't turn a thermal down now. What can you do? Tip up wing? No idea how to arrange that. I'll rely on trackers!
Incidentally, I've used some of my old blades from your mould. They're the same diameter

What a nice and really big Coupe, well done Bill. Where did you find the drawing? Just to add it to my Coupe folder.

The only significant change I made was to reduce the longerons to 3/32sq and sheet the motor tube with vertical grain 4 1/2lb 1/20 for durability. I doubt it's any heavier, it's my lightest coupe fuselage so far.

Ladies, Gentlemen, Girls & Boys Lurker Industries are pleased to announce a world first*.  A sub 50" span Minimoa.  Herewith one "Baby" Minimoa, 34" span, Free Flight.  Will it fly?  I really don't know.  I do hope so.

Unballasted it tips the scale at 25.5g, requires about 7g ballast to balance at about 50% of root chord.

Those who know the Minimoa design well will spot the obvious scale inaccuracies, a couple of which I may deal with if it flies but on the whole it is sufficiently "ish" for me.

The scheme is an approximation to that of BGA 1639 which was (probably) built in 1939 as Werk Nr. 378, imported from The Nederlands (PH-390) in about 1970, and restored in the early 1980s.  The prototype BGA 1639 is nearer a cream colour than pure white, but given the "ish" nature of the design white is a variation I can live with.


Lurk.


*Probably not, but if you're going to make claims, make 'em extravagant. Smiley

Ah.  That would be a micromoa then?  I think you need Walt Mooney for that.  Smiley 

Aye, there is a plan (and a cunning one at that) but unless and until I get a successful bungee launch it won't see the light of day.  If the model proves to be a turkey the plan will be shredded.  The last thing the hobby needs is yet another dodgy plan.

The Minimoa, of course, was itself a mini-Moazgotl, hence the name. Nobody ever seems to model the Moazgotl!

In the spirit of "show us your latest creation", the photos below are of a Hawker Audax trainer I completed earlier this year. 1/12 scale for PAW 100.
