Cheers Russ! It's good to be resuming normal service after a bloody awful year! It's had good bits, (Jane!) but by and large, it's been a nightmare. Back on track now and almost dug myself out of the crap my charming wife left me in...

On a happier, and more relevant note, I've decided not to do the bigger Mulligan. I realised I've got no boxes, or indeed space, to store a one piece model that big and chunky! Dunno what next... Decisions!!

Cheers,

Dan.

 Grin  well i got the plane to waddle thru the air. pic 1 shows the wings, 2 / 3 shows how i stuck the rudder on and kept it vertical, and the last  shows the plane assembled.  i don't like the tip angles much, too much neg incidence and the tissue  is terrible as a wing covering. also the wing panels have different dihedral so they may get rebuilt as soon as i shake this plane down

 Cool   well she's done!   all up weight is 42 grams, the uncovered structure was 28 grams, so by adding rubber, a prop (gulliows 6 inch) struts etc and covering put her up there.  I used light wood and everything.  The wheel pants and the cowling bumps are deleted, don't add much and are just too fiddly. .  On test flying the wing fell off, hee, hee so I pulled it off, pinned it to the plan and positioned right and then glued it down.  now the sucker flies!  as Bruce Wiilis says, YIPPEE KI YI EH, M. F.!

Bit more done on mine! Lower sheeting finished off, u/c wire bending done and she's sat on her wheels for the first time! Cowl and tailwheel block still to finish.

Cheers,

Dan.

 Cool  my mulligan flew for the first time. tonite.  i need to put a left turn into it but other wise it zips along.  it does need power to move thought, just a flew winds on the motor to test will not achieve good results.

I've got one of these almost completed, just needs windscreen, decals and a few minor items. Originally I was going to use a Telco in it but have changed my mind.

 I'm looking at powering mine with a Voodoo 25 and Zombie combination.

 Hoping to have it ready to try at our first indoor session of the New Year

I'll be interested to see how the electric version goes! I've not managed much over Xmas, but the cowl is nearly done. It will be tissued and sanded before adding the infuriating little rocker fairings as it makes an overall smooth finish before paint much easier than trying to sand between 18 of the things afterwards.

Cheers,

Dan.

P.S The Brown B100 is off it's mountings in this pic, which is why it's nowhere near where it will end up!

Little bit more done! Final cowl mounting and spacing sorted. Mike Stuart added an extra ring of soft balsa to round off the nose behind the cowl; I just added small stand off blocks between the firewall and the cowl, as the cowl is removable for access to the motor anyway... It all just needs a further sanding and the retaining dowels and magnets fitting.

Cheers and Happy New Year!!

Progress! Cowl is now covered, doped and ready for adding the rocker fairings before further dope. Tailplane now built, so I'll be starting on the wings tomorrow! I'll be replacing the kit's 1/16" ribs with 1/32" or 1/20" as the spacing is close enough for thinner ribs and every weight saving helps.

Cheers,

Dan.

Keep posting, Dan.  I am closely following this build as I have the same kit and engine and will be watching how the
combination works.

Made a master wing rib template today, then bit the bullet and added the 18 cowl blisters. It's amazing how much different they make the thing look! The basic cowl was already covered and doped, so the whole lot will get more dope before final sanding of the blisters. Any differences would be obvious from a mile off! Then more dope until ready for paint. Wings tomorrow!!

Cheers,

Dan.

The blisters aren't hard, just tedious! I cut a strip across the width of a sheet of 1/8" to the length of the blisters, then shaped it to the correct cross section. The end was sanded to shape, then sliced off. 18 reasonably uniform blisters took about an hour. I could only do about 4 at a time before boredom set in, though...

Cheers,

Dan.

SO glad I've got my enthusiasm back! This shouldn't drag on like the Bristol!!

Cheers,

P.S Just seen something in the HPA Plan Gallery that I just absolutely have to build next...

Apart from painting the inside black, the cowl is done! It may need another coat of white: I won't know until it's had 24 hours to dry thoroughly.

Cheers,

Dan.

Can't do any this weekend. My spare room workshop is full floor to ceiling with the thousand and one models/boxes that normaly live in the other spare room. Serves me right for having friends staying! Of course, now I can't do anything, the desire to hack balsa is overwhelming...!

Cheers,

Dan.
