Glidermaster John B. with his Night Train VII.  I thinks thats one of the best looking power models I've ever seen. It's lines are superb and John did a great job building it.

Steve D. having fun as he always does. He's flying a "Love me or leave me". At least that is what it says on the wing!

Some of you will remember Fast Richard from Snider swamp and the nice free flight stuff he used to do.  Attached is a CL stunt plane from about 10 years ago that was finished in tissue rather nicely.
