Thanks Caley.
It seems like I've been working on it forever, and I'm kinda glad it's done.
However, I haven't had much luck flying outdoors with a model that weighs 9 grams w/o rubber.

Tony, do you have access to an indoor facility?  I would imagine that is more suited to indoors, but you could probably fly it outddoors in perfectly calm conditions, if you ever get that kind of weather.  Anyway, I think the best models take time, and yours came out great.  Caley

Hi Tony, the Cherokee looks great. I think 9g is pretty good for a peanut  Smiley
Did you post a pic of the first version? I can't remember...

Yes..and yes Grin
The tissue is printed esaki on the shinny side using the draft setting and the glossy setting.
I use a basting spray, which is temporary adhesive used for quilting.
I've had no issues with shrinking with water,colors bleeding. I don't know why.
Dave, this is my second plan of this model.
The first was a flat sided construction that I built and flew as a prototype (no colors).
It flew well.
The thumbnail is a copy of that plan. I need to build it again to finalize and then I will post it.
This version is a keel and former laser cut that I also designed and had cut.
I probably will not post it because I need to keep the few friends I have. Cheesy
It was like building a ship in a bottle. Angry
Caley, I don't have and indoor facility, but the dog days of summer evenings are quite calm here.

Thank you for the kind words.

Tony

Hey Jon,

No, I didn't post the pics of that one.
It was heavier if you might recall.
I had some issues with a couple of the former widths top and bottom.
And the wing mount was not durable.
I've made the changes, and now need the motivation to re-build to make sure it's okay.

Yes, cute.
Here are a couple of pics that might interest you, Jon.
The first design was flat along the sides to help in fitting the 2 piece wing.
The keel and former allowed a more rounded shape and a 1 piece wing.
The fiddlely parts on the bottom are attached to the wing, instead of the fuse.

Here's my new model to take to the FAC Nats in a week and a half - a 28 inch span Portsmouth Aerocar for rubber power.  Only one was built by Portsmouth Aviation and it first flew in 1947.  Never seen it modelled before, so I had to give it a go.  Proportions look pretty good for free flight, but we'll soon see.  Still a few finishing touches to go - some panel lines and control surfaces, plus the fuselage cheat lines, fuselage skids and wheels (they still stick out a bit when retracted).

I cheated a bit and moved the booms out by half an inch to enable me to just swing a pair of Peck 7 inch props.  Finish is Xtracolour RLM Silver enamel, and the registrations are cut from black-painted decal sheet.

If the weather relents (fat chance) I could get some trimming hops in next week, but failing that I'll have to trim it at Geneseo.  I always end up on the last minute however hard I try!

Wow Mike! Very nice, I find silver tends to highlight flaws in covering but your model looks pretty much perfect. I am also in awe of that canopy. Their must be something we could learn from you there. It looks very clear and polished. In the plastic scale modelling world they achieve super clear canopies by a combination of plastic buffing polish and finally by dipping them in future floor wax which filled in any remaining imperfections. I really like your model. Hope it does you proud at the FAC nats.

Tony, that is very nicely done.  Please give us a fright report when you can.  Caley

It didn't do too bad outside Caley.
I muffed the launch holding the camera, but it recovered.

Tony, very nice fright. Flight  Never could figure out how some of you can hold, then toss a rubber powered airplane, and get a video at the same time.  I have a hard time just trying to launch an airplane.  Caley
