Very nice. 1st one ready for 2016 then? Have you dared weigh it yet?
It's 34g - no idea if that's reasonable. No ballast will be needed though.

I think mine is 40g including the rubber. It is quite a woody model. I don't know if the silver tissue I used is heavy, but I don't think I could have built it any lighter (although I did need a bit of Plasticene) and it flies OK.

Another great Model and covering job!

Thanks much.

Posted this in the outdoor scale forum too. Guillows Bird Dog, chalked white Esaki with colored tissue trim. 26g with rubber. Went for the well-used look for this one!

Hi Dave -  apologies for missing your post. It's just non-shrinking nitrate, three coats on Esaki.

I like that. My Guillows Fairchild is 40g and flies away.

A Dart Kitten from the old Aeromodeller plan, 10% bigger. Dave Banks 0.5cc diesel. It took three days to make but three years to add the windscreen. Will try it tomorrow. At least the Humbrol red is nearly dry.

A Fokker DVII. Aeromodeller plan + 10% = 30". Mills .75. No dihedral of course.
If it flies this weekend, it gets guns, engine and pilot.

That's nice. I like the scheme and lozenges. Hand painted?
Having finally started to come round to the idea of not needing added dihedral I took a knife to the wing joints of my similarly schemed (but only in tissue) Albatros DIII yesterday in a bid to flatten the wings. It has a bit less than before, but without taking the wings right off and re-rigging, it wouldn't give it all up.

 Grin  here they are.  i've tested the model and se flies in a very tight circle (torque?) so maybe a smaller rubber (3/16 rather than 2 x 1/8) or 8 inch prop rather than 7

Any comments?

it looks good Jim. In my humble opinion I would not go to a larger prop and perhaps use the 3/16 rubber, assuming there are no unwanted twists in the wing.

The workshop was getting full and dirty, so I had to move stuff to clean up. Maybe I should finish a model.

I lately finished my GeeBee R2 from the Pres Bruning plan.
I had a thread running on SFA, but since it is no more, I thought to post the result here.

Weight is a bit to high with 15g, but it was the best I could do...
I tossed it once to see if she is banking to one side. This seems not to be the case.
At the moment, I am waiting for calm weather to start the flight trimming.
The wheels are attached with magnets to avoid any damage on a hard landing.

I will keep you informed on the trimming phase...

Just finished my little own design Short Tucano, based on the construction style of the Frog Junior series. Wing span is 11.5" and it weighs just under 8g. Construction is all sheet 1/32 and light block balsa. There's a full build thread on Small Flying Arts here: http://www.smallflyingartsforum.com/YaBB.pl?num=1420316988/0

Roman,

I'm definitely anticipating the flight testing. I used the Pres Bruning's plan to build the pink foam GeeBee. I love the looks of it and may be tempted into a stick and tissue version if your flies well. Great job. It is lovely.

One of my better efforts: The motor was a very hot DIY and I just wasn't quite ready for the demands she placed on my flying skills. So it's not around anymore.  Shocked  The wing is made of one inch insulation foam from the Home Depot... what a mess that was in the making. Using a very rough wood working file, about six teeth per inch! ...foam dust all over the neighborhood! But it turned out to be an attention getter!  ...36 inch wingspan.

nicely finished R2 Roman. actually its a wonder it hasn't been a subject for the "sort of Bostonian' build thread. It may be fun to trim. your little RC r2 looks interesting Rick and I can imagine it being a bit twitchy.
