Mike this AMAZING build is just fantastic. I hope we get to witness this one in December as you mentioned last Saturday and again here. I just see another amazing finish here. You got her done.

Nearly finished - a George Woolls Max Holste from a 1954 Aeromodeller. A lot of glazing; the aspect of scale modelling at which I am rottenest.

A very nice little collection, Bill. I’m especially interested in the Max Holste as my dad built that one, from the same plan, in about 1974 I think. One of his very rare forays into rubber scale at that time, and I remember him trimming it to fly a steady circle over my grandpa’s lawn. It’s therefore been on my own to-do list for a long time. Apart from all the glazing, was it pretty straightforward?

The glazing looks pretty good on the Max Holste, Bill. You have obviously picked up a few tricks along the way Smiley

Thanks all but I can assure you that the glazing is embarrassingly bad. I haven't done the framing yet and that will hide some of it. I have suggested to Andrew B that he asks an expert to do an article on glazing for Aeromodeller.
Yes Pete it's otherwise dead easy but you need light wood  because there is a lot. I'll discuss it in AM.

Here's my rubber powered Falcon from a 1978 Aeromodeller plan. 24" span. This is my second attempt at tissue over mylar - not sure if I'm 100% happy with the system. My first attempt was on another model. Takes practice I suppose.

...La Mouette A1

I'm not too far off starting a "La Mouette", I like Rad Čížek designs. Any comments so far Bill? It looks fairly straightforward on the plan.

Kevin, there seems to be 2 or 3x as much wood as in an Aiglet so I'm using my lightest, although they say weight doesn't matter. But it's an easy build. I may just use one wing joiner.

I thought the same, it does seem very robust, but low weight isn't everything with gliders if the L/D ratio is good.

Nice collection of projects Bill

Like Pete, I like your Max Holste, that's a very pretty aircraft. Have you enlarged that at all or is that the original 25" span ?

No Chris; unusually I kept it the same size but it would make a great 30 - 36" model
Anyway, I shall donate a prize of 1sq in of 1/32 balsa for the first person to identify the occupants.

Similar guesses to Chris, but I’ll go for Bing Crosby with the pipe and Rosemary Clooney next to him. I’m counting on you having watched White Christmas as you were cutting wing ribs last month.

I wouldn’t have remembered Martine, having not seen M Hulot’s Holiday since since about 1980 when it turned up on British TV. By then the film had legendary status in our house because we (that is me and my siblings) had for years been assured by both parents that it was possibly the funniest film of all time.

It was good, but our sides didn’t exactly split. ‘Gentle’ is perhaps the word. I think maybe they’d slightly over-hyped it!

Well done Pete ... I had a feeling that you were right.
My guess gave me another listen to 'La Mer' at least ... one of my favourite foreign language songs.
Strong competition from the Japanese with 'Sukiyaki' and 'Kojo no Tsuki' ....and not forgetting my love of German marching songs .... 'Erica ' a favourite!
Er, back to model aeroplanes.

I agree Pete, but it does bear repeated watching and makes you happy. Rather like 'Detectorists'

My Mouette came out at 138g all up, with nose weight and 2 joiners, so not so porky. Bill - 2 joiners are better, otherwise torsion from landing loads can break the ribs and TE at the rubber bands.
If only we could have a comp.

That's a little bit less than my 50" Lulu which flies very well, although I haven't compared wing areas exactly. I would think it is a good performer at that weight? Any tips before I start mine?
