Thanks Pete, its specially adapted to land on clothes lines  Grin

Actually I drew it as a trike, then played around with tail-dragger landing gear but it was getting a bit beefy so I decided to give it a new retractable UC and finish it 'wheels up'  Roll Eyes It's going to get a rudder at some point too  Shocked

Fantastic Jon.
And that's a great color.
I've seen builders use that LG to keep the plane from floating away. Grin
I've never had that problem. Cheesy

I had a plane that finally came down from a very tall tree.
It was up there for a while and needed re-covered.
I thought the re-decorating might bring a smile. Grin

 Grin  here is my latest Non Flying Mossie NF 30.  This aircraft was the last plane used by RCAF sqn 410 (City of Saint John NB ).  this sept we will be reaffiliating with thios sqn at the site of the ols milledgeville airport now in the north end of the city.  During the last week in Aug we will be celebrating 100 years of flight in the city with an air shoew at the airport and a model display at the EXhibition. I will be giving a demonstration on how to build a model plane (stick and Tissue ) so if you live in Eastern canada or New England  Drop in to introduce yourself  Its not that far away.

Hi Jim,

Agree with Caley:  it sounds like a lot of fun but I'm waaaay to far away (west coast) to attend. 

Nice model.  Any thoughts on adding a bit of rubber and giving it a fly??

I built a new propeller for the pink plane.
The prop is pic 1. No biggie. It turned out nice. Cool
The creation is the mold.
Pics 2 thru 4. Smiley
I hope it's helpful.

My latest creation was recyling a Walmart bag into a flying machine.  Flys pretty well.

Looks cool, Bob. Does Walmart have to pay you a royalty every time you fly it  Grin ?

What glue did you use to stick the plastic to the balsa?

Jim, That's a neato model.  Looks like the ones that go straight up, when I watch the power guys at the Perris field.  Kinda looks like the new E-36 also.  Caley

Hey Allen,
It was a litlle trial and error, but it's plaster of paris.
I wasn't sure there would be an interest in it.
If there is, I can start a small thread to show what I have found so far.

Tried several before I finally got it to stick with a Scotch (3M) Mega Glue Stick.   Unfortunately no royalties from Walmart.

While not exactly new, this did fly for the first time last week at the FAC Nats.  Span is 16" and it qualifies for FAC dime scale events.

Initial trim flights showed it needs more vertical fin to offset the floats, but a couple tape tabs later, it was grooving.  A bit of thermal help took it from one end of the Geneseo field to the other. 

Thanks to Dave Andreski for posting plans here on HPA!

Best,

Scot
