Thanks, Caley and Shig.  Putting the rubber above the stick was fairly common during the 30s-50s I've learned.

This one was started to particpate in the Cloud Tramp mass launch nearly 2 years ago. This year I should be a doer, not a watcher.

Changes I made: Moved wing to top of stick. Reversed the wingtip shape. Mounted the wing parallel to the stick instead of angled. Mounted the stab at an angle for decalage, instead. Moved the rubber to the bottom of the fuselage  and shortened the length. Made a prop hanger from tubing and wire.

The wingtip shape reversal was actually a goof. I didn't realize I had glued the ribs on reversed until they were all on and I didn't want to do them over.

I had the urge to build a plane in a few hours. So I did. And it shows. I didnt have any wood except for a whole mess of Guillows sticks I got for a dollar a while back at the Carlisle swap meet. It thought it would be realy heavy but its actualy on the light side. Which is odd because the sticks are Guillows...... They were probably from the 60s at the latest. But anyway heres my Akro! I had no idea such a simple little thing could fly so good especially when I only had 3 hours into it. I listened to Cabin Pressure a BBC radio comedy about a one plane airline while I worked. Well worth the listen for any aviation nut.  Excuse the mess in the background.....

Don't feel too bad...I did exactly the same with mine Roll Eyes.  Didn't seem to make any difference to the flying capabilities.

Cross another one off the list. I finished my downsized Gollywock (not the one I'm building in Caley's thread). Man, I'm going have a time getting all these things trimmed and flying well. Anyway, here's a pic.  I don't know why my camera makes the rudder and prop look violet, but they're not.

Bargle, Nice GollyGeeWock, or whatever you call a downsized one.  Maybe the combination of colours and the blanket colour kind of reflected onto those areas to create a violet colour.  If you used a flash, that is possible.  Caley

I like!  What's the span on that one?

Maybe call it the Ewok? Wink

Thanks, Dave.

Might be the case, Caley. I did use a flash.

Shig, it's about 24". According to my plan notes, it's a 72% version. Don't take that as a certainty, though. For some reason the fuselage shrunk top to bottom. Apparently, a printing program error. No telling what it may have done to the other parts. I didn't realize it was thinner until it was finished.

That leaves the Skymaster, Sorta Phantom Fury and the EmbryOK to finish.

I'd love to see what you've done to "sorta-ize" the PF!

Also, isn't the Wok a 31-1/2" span stock?  That'd make the 24" just over 75%.  How tall did the fuse end up?

Also, I noticed you deleted some ribs on the wing though you may have added spars?  Looking to shave some weight?

What did it end up weighing if I may ask?

Basicly, the Sorta Phantom Fury has a simplified fuselage. I'll post a picture when it's done and give details then.

Wingspan on the 'wock is 22 & 1/2". Weight is between 27 & 28 grams without rubber. As I often do on oldtimer designs, I split the single large spar and put half at the top and half at the bottom of the rib. A bit stiffer and I break fewer ribs if I don't have to put deep notches in them. I space the ribs between 1.5" and 1.75", and use however many that ends up being. I did add another lower spar between the main spars and the TE. Makes it easier for me to get the tissue stuck well to the undercamber. The fuselage is 1 & 3/4" at the thickest point, which is around the wing mount. Measurement does not include the wing rail.

If only I was gettin' 'em right. I just realized today that I goofed the center dihedral break on the reduced Golly. That will need fixin'.

And your D. III looks great.   Smiley

Yeah it's a Comet nickel scale 'Ryan Trainer' (The ST in ST-A stands for Sport Trainer) I made some mods to the original plan (the UC, an extra pair of stringers and an enlarged stab.) It was my attempt for the SFA Quick BUild Challenge, some of the guys did get all the way to a finished model though.... bonkers!

Our club's Model of the Year is any Earl Stahl scale model.  I am building a Stahl O-57 from an old RN kit.  So far, so good.  What you see here weighs 35.5 grams with a wing span around 32".  Hopefully, it will fly well.

Dem bones sure luk gud.  It is hard to believe than anything Mr Earl Stahl designed wouldn't fly well.  I know the Cubs  down Uruguay way have been building quite a few of his designs and flying they fairly successfully.  Caley

This is my most recent model, a Walt Mooney Hyannis Bostonian. 

It's a little overweight at 15.5 grams.   I had fun making it.
