Very nice indeed Bill - is that a bamboo T/P outline I see in the back there? - We'll have you building Jimmie Allen models next!

Hello Mike, no it's basswood laminations and a lot of ammonia.
i did a Jimmie Allen years ago - it was in Aeromodeller - and I fancy a cabin one.

Well, equally laudable!  We had a JA competition a few years back and most chose the parasols and cabins - they all go well.  Me being me and somewhat contrary I chose the Spartan Bomber, complete with 3 bladed prop, bomb dropper and tacky motor hum device!  It flies beautifully

Now that's a coincidence because I have literally just removed my soldering iron from the wood I was resting it on. Lots of smoke.

A KK Fokker DVIII. This was the first model I built (1959?) that maintained height! I can see it now floating across the garden to land in a dahlia. It always seems an odd one in the KK range - why the 3/32sq structure on such a small model?

Bill, you seem to be setting a amazing pace building!

The D8 was one of the few Bill Dean designed, I think that the Luscombe Silvaire, Kibrby Prefect and Piper super cruiser was too.  They are all a bit "chunky"...

Hi Andrew. I am just forcing myself to finish all my unfinished projects. This one, for example, has sat around for three years waiting for me to make a couple of cowlings!

This is a 75% Tiny Tandem glider built for our church's annual gift exchange & Turkey dinner tonight. 9 3/4" wingspan, 1/8" hard fuselage, 3/32" wing sanded to an airfoil, 1/16" stab, 1/32" rudders. Flying weight, including clay, about 6.5 g. Floats along nicely in the glide.

Looks great. I hope it went home with a kid who has wanted one a long time. Good Job. Where did you find that plan?

The plan is available both here on HPA, and on Outerzone (http://outerzone.co.uk/plan_details.asp?ID=8248)
The plane went to a young, newly married couple and he was definitely interested.

My new 1:12 scale, 20" span, semi-scale Sperry Messenger.  Roughly based on the Blankenship plan.  All markings painted on (1st Squadron, Observation, oldest in USAF).

It's a beauty Mark, but I think we need to re-define 'semi scale'!

That's a gorgeous model Mark - really neat finish and markings.  In what way is it semi-scale?  Seems to match the photos of the real thing very well.

  In what way is it semi-scale?
I think Mark is mortified that he didn't model the scalloped trailing edges. How can he live with himself? It also looks from the photos as if the fin might flare out below the mid-fin rib, so I'm not sure the model even counts as semi scale. . . Grin Seriously that gem gets a 'kudos' from me; the painting alone would ensure that, never mind the rest.

What an outstanding effort Mark. That paint finish is in a class of it's own.
