This is a 16" W/S stick job I designed for playing with a twin motor setup. I call it Bronco Billy since it is loosely modeled after the OV-10 Bronco. It weighs in at 20 grams. I tested it just before dark with a loop of 1/16" rubber per motor to get an idea of balance in the glide before upping power. It seems to glide best with balance at about 40 to 50% of chord. The wing uses an I-beam spar of 1/32 stock for the center section and a T-spar for the outer section.

Hi Fellas
            I know this is not the right forum but I thought some of you could do with a laugh.
A friend of my daughter is having a Steam Punk Wedding and she asked for a center piece for the table.  As she is going as a Steam Punk Airship Captain and after a bit of research, I came up with what you see here. It is Stick and Tissue and the wings flap slowly and the cranks revolve and piston rods osculate via a 9v geared electric motor and the eyes in the skull and lanterns light up, it's 28" long. It was fun to build  Grin

Dave, I have no idea what this is about, but never mind - last night I was just wondering that we hadn't heard from you for ages. Haven't you got a backlog of models to test - the Albatros and the Staaken?!

All your usual creative flair Dave - but I'm a bit disappointed it's not steam-powered Grin Grin.

What happened to the crew Dave? It's not an airborne flying Dutchman by any chance Smiley It is crying out for steam power and smoke from that stack.  ::)What a table centre piece.

  You Fellas are never satisfied  Grin  I did think of maybe a candle to create some smoke but I could see it all ending in tears.
   John, I've 100 plastic figures on order that I hope to be able to modify a few for the crew, I even have photos of what the bride and groom will be wearing!

You are setting a high standard here Mike with another good effort.
Is the wing one piece or separate panels?

Did you cover the top of the fuse and the wing first, then attach the wing and finally cover the bottom of the fuse?
The taper on the wing looks like it would have made it difficult to slide the covered wing through the fuse.
The wing fuse joint looks very neat.

TE on the wing is trimmed just enough to slide the wing into the fuselage.  I covered the wing first, fit-checked it into the fuselage, then pulled it out and covered the fuselage.  I still ended up having to sand the fuselage slot a bit to get the wing level during final assembly.

Very, very nice Mike.  I may have missed it, but how did you do the transition between the red and silver tissue at the rear of the fuse?  I see the black stripe, but that stripe does not line up with the rear fuse former.  Right now I'm thinking magic.....................

dogone:  again, very nice work.  Anymore pics or construction details?
