That's very kind John - although I took the pictures from the best angles to hide some wrinkly areas!

I printed the lettering onto white tissue with an inkjet printer and printed blocks of purple and cut it up for trim on the Swift as I hadn't got any purple tissue. That was following a tip on this forum about attaching the tissue to print paper using photo-mount spray which worked a treat. The red trim on the Jodel is domestic tissue which didn't take the curvature on the wing so well.

Hi, I just came across this thread and wanted to share my Frog Linnet. It's still in the glide trim stage waiting for calm air. (Gusting to 48 mph yesterday).

Wonderful looking model.  I really love the pilot.  Hope things calm down for you so you can get it flying.  Caley

Regarding my redrawn and slightly modified Frog Linnet.
  I was really interested in modler's Frog Linnet. However, I didn't like all the wood. I redesigned the wing LE to be a bit more like the KK Elf and a bit of change with the center section. The rest is standard stick & tissue construction. I changed the superstructure, although I did both on the plan. I intended it for a model building class. It took 1 week to do the bones, 1 week to cover and the 3rd week to decorate so that I could show the progress to my class as it went along. The final decorations are to make it look more like a Me 110. The canopy is folded plastic sheet glued together with Aleene's Tacky glue and decorated with strips of black tissue. The yellow was 2 sheets of tissue pre-stretched on a frame and painted with clear. Then I ran it through my HP printer at "best print quality" without a backing sheet to print the German markings. The finish is "Future" mixed 1:3 with polyproylene alcohol. All up weight without rubber is 17.6 grams and the balance point without extra weight is just forward of 50% of wing chord. Flights will await weather and opportunity.

The tissue doesn't stretch or distort without the backing paper PB? Sounds great if that works. What printer di you use?

I have an HP Officejet 6700. I found that with tissue, if I printed at normal print quality then the printer shakes too much and the ink smears. But with the high-quality print, there is almost no shake, and no smearing. I thought that the doubled tissue would be thick enough to go through without a backing and I was right. The build for the Linnet is at http://www.stickandtissue.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1455301349/4

Your model will hold up to crashes and the handling of small children far better than mine will.

So, I retired last year and started building rubber band FF again.

This is my latest, Stearman PT 17. It was built from scratch from the Sterling plans downloaded from HPA.
It came in at 60 grams. I hinged the ailerons and rudder which made trimming easier. Also. its been fun printing on tissue I think it makes the models look pretty cool.

I got couple flights in before weather went to crap here again and it flew real nice.

A Bucker Jungmann, rubber, 30". About 8oz, 5oz/sqft. Just needs rigging, and a few tiny pieces. The heat shrink tubing for the strut boots, as suggested by Ozpaf, worked a treat

That Bucker is magnificent! I am always in awe of you scale guys. I can only dream of doing work like that. the Jungman has always been one of my favorite airplanes.

How about a little more detail about the build?

Thank you. I reduced the diesel plan by Eric Coates to 30" and just winged it, using what I thought were suitable rubber sizes for wood etc. I knew it would need no nose nose ballast, which is always a pitfall for me with rubber models. The lower wings mount on carbon rods, the top just locate, struts fix the dihedral. Cellulose finish, pro-skin cowlings. I hope it works!

Thank you. The heat shrink tubing, which comes in all sizes, has a lot of scope if the mould can be removed. Things like exhaust stubs would be hollow and thin-walled

Boy that looks nice!

I'm not clear on what the heat shrink tubing was used for, do you have any close up photos?

Thanks Chris. My camera is incapable of close ups but if you look at pictures of Buckers, the ends of the struts and their mountings are enclosed in cone-shaped leather boots. I made up a plug the same as a strut, expanding outwards as per the boots. I then slipped on a length of black heat shrink, wafted it with the hot gun and pulled it off, and on to the real struts, trimming to match the wing surface.

Thanks Chris, As I said, the model was built over Eric's original plan (reduced) with changes to wood sizes. Eric's models were accurate and I intend to fly this at our Nationals, if it works. I will try and give any further details in Aeromodeller at some stage

Looks lovely Bill - the Jungmann is pretty much the perfect rubber scale subject isn't it?  Look forwards to seeing it in action.
