Scot,
Your little Taylorcraft Floatplane is a real beauty! Great tissue work and prop carving. Wish I could've been there to share in the excitement.
Thanks for the great photos. I've 'saved' them for reference.

I just finished up another small OT Stick model.  This is the Victory Stick from the January 1943 Flying Aces magazine.  It has a 13.75" span.  Initial tests show tons of potential - too much for my small testing field.

Here's the latest off my board, an AVRO 504K.  At half scale, she has an 18" wingspan with 81.2 sq inches of wing area. The rudder is laminated and was enlarged slightly. The ship is covered in Hallmark domestic tissue. All markings were printed on 16# vellum and attached using 3m spray adhesive. Fuselage is box and former with 1/16 x 1/32 top & side stringers. It's intended to use 2 loops of 1/8 rubber but I only have one installed at present. Currently AUW is 24g.  I was thinking of doing the rigging but have had second thoughts after seeing what a nightmare it would be. Anyway, here it is.....

It looks very good, especially the white. Seems to have more opacity than real Japanese white tissue which doesn't look white at all, more of a translucent dead jellyfish grey  Sad ....IMHO, of course  Smiley .

+1, not to mention the enormous amount of drag that rigging adds to a flying model  Sad .

I very much admire those builders who patiently rig their models in a realistic fashion. Certainly adds well-deserved scale points and IIRC FAC requires rigging on all WW1 models.

To quote a HPA member (and he knows who he is), "It looks good from thirty feet or so...". My sentiments exactly. Airborne and at thirty feet away, rigging simply disappears in the eyes of most observers  Smiley .

Skyraider, very nice bird you built. The nose looks very short... Do you need a lot of down thrust?
Any flights yet?

Tom,
  Nice work on the Spitfire!!  I haven't done an Easy Built but now may need to try one. Very well done.

On my Avro 504, yes, it will need some down thrust. I won't know until I start the trimming process.
The long fuselage and short nose makes this model tail heavy and will need about 10-12g of nose weight. But even after that, it will still be under my target weight. I hope to start trimming flights this weekend.

Skyraider, nice job!  What is the prop dia?  Been wanting to do a 504 in P-nut, but that %^&^$#^& skid limits the size of the prop to something pretty silly in a P-nut,  and in my preliminary CAD sketches, lengthening the LG resulted in a very "stork-like" non-scale look.  I know that late 504s (504N?) had a non-skid LG, but the LG appears to be quite complex  (light but fragile...strong but heavy...).

Thanks Tom. Have you had a chance to do any flights on the Spit yet?

Wordguy,
         The prop is a cut down 5" ( now at 4.75" ) to clear the skid. On my plans, I suggest if using a larger prop to cut back the skid to the front legs or at least move the assembly back a little to clear.
But this would put it slightly out of scale appearance. I may have to do this so we'll see what happens on the trimming.

Skyraider,
I built a 1/2"=1' Avro 504K back in 1977 for CO2 (I still have it) and had real tail heavy condition as you mention even with a Brown CO2 motor up front.  Had to tape a strip of solder onto the front tip of the skid for flight.

I LUV SE5a's!  Nice one!

Almost off my board (FINALLY) is the T-Tail "RIVETS" in peanut scale.  I started it as my second model for the racer cookup on SFA, and intended to fly primarily indoors.  The weight has crept up to the point that it'll be fine for mixed flying.  There is just a small bit of covering to do, the prop/spinner, canopy and the rest of the markings.  The build is documented here in the Indoor Peanut board.

The GLIDE is something to see...
