Nice one Bill, I love the lines of the F24.

My latest is not exactly my creation, it would probably pass as an ARF assembly. I received a wing and a slightly modified tail group and a front-end for an Up Shot Mulvihill from a club member who no longer flies free flight. I then received the fuselage from another club member, the designer George Schroedter's son, Marty Schroedter. Probably the neatest part of the story is that the fuselage was built by George himself Cool. All I had to do was to cover the fuse, make some repairs and install the timer. So far I was able to test it up to 1/3 of the max torque and flies pretty well.

EasyBuilt silver tissue. It looks nice, but does not want to shrink properly with the glue stick method. Which can make curves really fun.

Beautiful airplane and nice video. I lived in NorCal in the mid 1990s and spent some time at Waegell ... I haven't been back to NorCal (or Waegell) since leaving in '97. Thanks for the video, brought back some nice memories.

Those are some wiiiiide circles that it makes in the sky!

A Veron Fury, hopefully for Interscale KS. I started late Friday evening but took Sunday out to go flying; incidentally my previous Guillows Fairchild went extremely well on 6 long strands of 1/8" SS
So far I don't think I have made any deviations from the plan, unlike my previous efforts! The instructions infer a light spray of silver, so what the implications of that are, I don't know.

A KK Auster Arrow. The scheme and markings are spurious, but then so is the accuracy. I shall probably chop a couple of inches off the silly UC. If doing one. I recommend putting the spar on top!

Beautiful Bill, as usual, you also have really nice color schemes on your planes (I might steal a few! color schemes that is, not planes). I thought I was doing a lot of building, but you've got an incredible fleet going, your workshop or garage must be like a candy store! Larry

Finally built a new fuselage for my 'Ellipsis230' to replace that which vaporised last July when a soldered joint failed on the shaft.   This one is silver soldered.....

Weighs 80 grms with tracker.  Will carry 50 gms of rubber initially, may well go up to 60 gms

Gliders are such graceful flying machines .. usually.

But then there's the clumsy near-ugly "Walthew" beginners A/2 glider from the '50s, as reduced to 36" span for bungee launch.

Somebody has to love it.  I'm trying my best....

Applehoney,  That Ellipsis 230 looks great.  I like your glider too. Is there a plan or kit available for the Ellipsis 230?

Thanks,
Steve

Steve, never a kit!   John O'Sullivan kindly drew a CAD  plan up for me but I'd rather have the thing in the air and well flown before I'd feel comfortable sharing the drawing.  Its predecessor of some years ago had a shorter 'square' fuselage and was very reliable - won a dawn event at about six minutes -  but I blew the original fuselage of this version before having it evaluated. Remind me in 5-6 months if still interested!

Thanks for the information.  I found a plan in the gallery called the Elgar P-30 by Rich Wegener.   It has the elliptical wings I like.  I might build that one. Still undecided.

Thanks,

Jim,

I love that simple glider that you have in 36" W.S.  It has been on my 'TO BUILD LIST' for some  time.  But, haven't gotten around to have it re-sized to 36".  Any chance that you have a sharable plan?

What I'm currently working on is a 36" Cadet.  I had your plan taken to a copy shop and re-sized to 36".

Inna mail is a 36" laser cut Frog Wren from Bob Holman.  I failed to order sheets of his gussets in several sizes.  So, guess I'll hafta make another order for some thing from him. 'Cuz they are only $1.00 a sheet of 100 if ordered with another kit.

Van - I ordered the plan from Deryck Scott, reduced to about 36"

I'm kind of busy with family, etc. right now and not likely to see a copy shop for at least a couple of weeks - maybe more; how about I mail it for you to copy and return?  If that's OK email me your postal address to  [email protected] 

I had no interest in the sheets of gussets - no use to me.  All joints would have to be exactly at 90 degrees; my building is not that precise so I prefer to cut and custom fit my own gussets... lol
