  Kevin, I built a Drobek for the first round of comps and had 2 goes at the fuse to try and keep it light. I'm not a competition builder and mine was just over the 100 grms but it flew well, enough to spend a week purchased at the top of a tree in the park lands.

Thanks, I have just been re-reading your contributions on the early part of this thread about your Drobek. Was your second fuselage just less dense wood of the same cross-section? I don't know where I can get 3mm square at the moment so I'll just have to use 1/8 in with enthusiastic sanding I guess.

Just had a look and I've used 3?32 longerons and 1/32" sheet for the nose.

I wanted to take a second to thank Mark for hosting this postal yet again, and throw my hat into the ring as a participant

This will be my first Coupe and first large rubber powered model.  I am going with Batiuk’s “CDH” as found the plan gallery, with the prop from “Dwarf Dip”

Fuse is pretty much complete, less covering.  With the noseblock, but no prop/hub it’s weighing in at 16g. 

I got the Z wire and prop shaft bent and soldered, and am going to get the prop blades formed next.  While those are forming I’ve got a nice piece of 1/32 C grain that will be turned into the 30 under cambered wing ribs needed for wing construction.

I’ll keep record of my progress and share as I get things done.

I've done the wings for my Drobek, about to start the fuselage and probably the prop simultaneously. The drawings I have are low resolution and I can't really make out much detail of the hub assembly. dputt7, do you have any pictures of how you did it on yours?

Thanks

Kevin

Hi Everybody,

I, too, want to again thank Mark for hosting this event. It occurrs to me that perhaps a little support for Mark's effort might be in line. Think about it, here is a 32 page thread patiently monitored and participated in by Mark. He coordinates the event and its results, provides friendly dispute resolution and in the end provides and ships the awards. What a guy!! It's easy on PayPal (friends and family) and would recognise all this effort. Coordinate with him with a private message. Mark may humbly decline but give him that chance.

Best,

Bill

Does anyone know if there's an index for Modelar? I ran across a couple of coupe plans, which I think are from the 1960's, called Coffee and Jupiter. If they'be already been mentioned in this thread, please forgive me. They may or may not be my cup of tea , but I think more choices are good to have. I hope I recall the names right. There does seem to be a list of the year's plans in each December issue. Kinda need tiny little eyes to read it.
