I recall that George has a particular interest in the Elias Aircoupe and that he played a central part in assisting me with this build (built because I have little interest in Lacey’s or other barn door boxes)

Hi Mike,

You recall correctly...

There are 3 airplanes that I like so much, I built them again and again...

Avro F, Elias Aircoupe and Sopwith Batboat...

The Aircoupe needs a proper 3 view drawing, which I can only do if I ever manage to visit the Mid Atlantic Air Museum... Talk about going out... far away out...

Re. the Dankok (subject of this thread about ten posts ago...)

George, thanks for the pictures from Stauning. I was already aware of this preserved example but thanks anyway. It has Spitfire wheels as the originals went missing! All Dankoks had the same colour scheme, so I don't have any choice. I will probably do 157 rather than 158 as 7 is easier than 8! Or I might do one of the Hawker-built ones - although the Grainger drawings show the Hawker stencilling in detail so I won't have any excuse...

Either way, I get to paint "LOFT HER" instead of "LIFT HERE", which will be a change  Grin

A KK Nieuport 17, much-lightened as per ZK-AUD's Camel.

Very nice Bill. I may well follow suit. If I recall correctly, ZK-AUD's lovely Camel used thread-braced balsa cabane and u/c, very light wood at the back end and the rear motor anchor moved forward quite a bit. Any other tricks you used to make the Nieuport fly well?

All I did was use very light wood at the back, 5lb 1/32. I incorporated about 3 degrees down and right thrust and it isn't far off. The prop is a Kaysun with Garami clutch so weight is well forward

A KK Slicker. Taifun Hobby 1cc. The original trimming instructions don't make much sense so I've included right inner washin and will try SLOP trim. I'll paint the balsa spinner when I've finished stuffing it into the ground.

Very nice KK Slicker Bill. I've always fancied doing one of these too so I'll be very interested to hear how you get on trimming it. Love the yellow with black trim.

SLOP trim I assume is old spiral climb rather than the near vertical climb of todays power models ? I only managed to get a model to do that once. I have a Jersey Javelin powered by Spark Ign O&R 23. It did a couple of nice spiral climbs then the next time out at Middle Wallop it did a rather horrible U shaped spiral climb into the ground. I rebuilt it but I tended to chug it around after that on retarded ignition ( not that I've flown it since the loss of Middle Wallop ) so very interested to hear how you get on with it

Sometimes I just fail to follow some threads and miss some interesting items...

I just saw the timer by Jon Whitmore was already posted here some time ago, only found out about it a few days ago on facebook.

I also just realised, despite the obvious real name always present, that he, Slowmatch, is Yak52... And finally that I would like a timer of his some time, when he makes them available (or sooner, I do not mind  Smiley)

Have something underway, something minor not worthy of a dedicated thread, but no pictures to show yet.

Instead, here is a plane I really liked when I saw it in Denmark, might make Richard Hewitt reconsider the finish? Unless he already has that in mind...

George I think it must be one of the Curtiss designs from a long time ago. The shape of the verticle stab matches the Falcon plan from Comet I think.

What a pretty FF model Bill. What exactly is SLOP trimming? Right/right with inside wash in, slight right side thrust and tail tilt for right turn or ?

Good luck with it.

That´s it John- when the kit came out, that trim had not yet been investigated and the instructions call for a left climb and 50% cg. I remember John Barker saying they were looping and crashing all over Fairlop.

It'll probably only ever be flown in doors (other than initial trimming), but strictly speaking it's an outdoor model.  One Dumas Ryan M-1.

The wheels need to be secured, but they can wait until tomorrow so I'm calling it done.  As seen, and rounding up to the nearest 1/10g, it's 28.2g or 1oz in old money.

What'll it fly at?  At the moment it's balancing a little aft of the main spar and I'm going to try with a loop* of 1/8" to start with so that'll be another 3g plus whatever nose weight.  Along with a number of other changes I moved the motor peg forward one bay (about an inch) so I'm hoping no more than a couple of g will be required  We shall see.

Lurk

*Most of my Peanuts fly with with a loop of 3/32" (or something close to that), the BE2c at 16" span and 23g or so needs a loop of 1/8" so that seems like a good place to start.

Thanks chaps, but the credit is Claude Ryan's.  There's something about Ryan's designs that makes them easy on the eye and Dumas have done a good job rendering it at as a kit.  Can't help thinking that they must have been swines to fly, more especially to land, as the pilot's view, esp. forward, is pretty poor.

Latest profile bird added to the hanger. Siebel Si 201 German observation plane, model builder plan #3723. Wingspan 32". This motor is the PAW .03 diesel, from the late great Eric Clutton, he started and ran this motor and added all the bells and whistles, so it's very dear to me. I know this plan calls for it to be FF 020 peewee powered, but my 3ch RC uses micro servos, and the diesel adds a very slight difference in weight. The FF version called for a good size lead sinker in the nose!

I think the profile Siebel is better looking than the real one - the real one looks like they stuck half a bus on the front.    Great that you are enjoying your little diesel.  You must qualify as a minority in the US  Wink
