I recently made a pledge to myself to not start any new planes until I've finished or officially abandoned the half built or more ones laying around.

Hehe, I've made the same resolve! I'm currently at 10 unfinished models  Shocked
Nice work both of you.

Jon

Thanks, Jon. I've got (uh... let's see) 6 unfinished. A Phantom Fury, Cloud Tramp, Scaled down Gollywock, double size Sleek Streek, Scientific Skymaster and an EmbryOK. Props and nose blocks/prop hangers are the main holdups.

Bargle,

Be careful.  "Big Yellow Taxi" might take away your old man.

Justin

I knew that joke was comin'. Enjoyed it just the same.  Cheesy

Let us know how the Miss Canada flies. I scaled the Miss Canada to a little smaller than yours, 22" maybe and checked against the embryo "box" and wing area. It's legal, the only mod I can see is making the windscreen a little steeper. But now the plan's been sitting for a couple of years so who knows when it will get built.

scrubs

Will do. I haven't weighed it yet, but it feels light in the hand. Of course that may be wishful thinking.

Hey chaps, well not quite my Latest Creation but the most recent (and only) piece of video I have been able to upload, you may enjoy viewing it.

(I built the model in 1994/5, it's still in my loft and the Spring weather here on the South coast of England is beautiful, so I can feel a set of stepladders coming in handy soon).

Well, it came in at 24.6 grams without rubber. This is lighter than my 2 similarly sized Cloud Busters, so I'm pleased with that. The flying, however, didn't go well. See the "Went Flyin" thread for details.

Er... not quite a Park Flyer, that's an 8ft wingspan model. Perhaps parks are bigger in the U.S. too ??????  I've just been out test-running my (original) Forster 99 ign engine, wonderful noise on an 18" prop, it's destined for a F/F Taibi Hornet.  I was inspired to build one having seen photos of Steve Dona's in 2004 (pic attached); "we're gonna need a bigger park !"

Bargle,
Sorry to have missed your query about my P.20 - it is an Own Design.

Test glided at the weekend - looked OK - roll away those clouds, let's get flying!

hmmm... well, my newest creation is yet another model added to my "to be completed" list- DPC's new "pseudo-dime" Alby D.III.  In a generic Purina air force scheme. I hate the lofting-the-top-wing-onto-the-cabanes part.

A very nice looking model Wayne.
You may hate "lofting" the top wing but I would be very surprised if you cannot do the job well.

Nice stuff showing up here!  I haven't been able to get much building done for the past two weeks due to various matters, but did manage a little more on my FROG(gy) "HERON".

The rolling bits are done and just need paint, and the tail surfaces are covered.  I've decided NOT to paint or chalk, but to try a multi-colored, all tissue (but fairly simple) scheme.

Thanks peoples!  Tom:  I was originally planning to do a built-up fuz for mine, but a SEVERE case of lazitus smote me down Grin.  I also figured it might go against the grain to those chaps on the Island across the Channel (theyz TOO close Roll Eyes)!

Full post in the indoor forum, but I've flown this (cat) bird in the street and it does lazy circles like a dream!

Hey Barggle,  Looks like a Big Pussycat.  They fly very well.  Just have to determine while building exactly what kind of turn you want, and set the fins to your taste.  I built one, flew it a few times, and then gave it away to a young lady while in Eloy a few years ago.  It certainly flew nicely.  Caley

Hey Shig, Sorry.  Those words were for you.  I thought I was answering Bargle when he posted something, and then it disappeared, and then your model appeared.  Draw it up to one of those famous senior moments.   Smiley  Caley

Next one from the 'Get 'em done' group. My modified Cloud Tramp that I've renamed the Cloud Hobo. The mods were extensive enough that I didn't think calling it by the original name was quite right.

Looks like a CT to me, though I am not good at remembering what models look like sometimes.  But to me, that qualifies for a CT.  Nice looking model.  Bargle, you've really been hacking the balsa lately.  Lots of very nice airplanes.  Caley

I always thought it was an odd idea to put the rubber above the stick. I like what you've done.
