I have been out of action for about 7 weeks, so imagine how happy I am to see the interest Night Train is causing, and all this wonderful CAD work!

A word of caution, however; choose your wood carefully, particularly for the wing. If you try and go too light you will end up with insufficient stiffness (assuming this is going to have a powerful motor up front). If this design has a weakness, that is it, in my opinion.

Some of my favourite modelling memories (as I grew up with freeflight) are of George French and the original Night Train mk.7. It was always the fastest model on the field, a real class act!


Gliders are a part of me.
