Whilst waiting for Bulldog supplies, I've made a start on the 24" Skylake Waco; hopefully as a Kit Scale contender for next year's Indoor Nats. I've only managed the tail surfaces and one fuselage side so far, but the kit wood is superb and everything is going together well. The design is nice and light and should be a floater with a GM120. Back when I've made more progress...

Cheers,

Dan.

Hi Dan,
          Is it possible to use CO2 power for kit scale? If so that is great as it can result in reduced weight for a number of models.

Yes, any mods to fit a different power source are not penalised.

Progress so far. A bit more on this, then it's back to the Bulldog...

Cheers,

Dan.

Dan,
    Nice looking fuselage. Did you by any chance happen to scan the parts before
assembly?  I'm not sure if Skylake is still in business is the reason I'm asking.
Hate to see these go by the wayside.

Very nice build.
I like the skylake kits. Built the Yak-3 and the Waco SRE. Both were great to build and fly nicely.
I never built a big one of the skylake fleet. Therefore I am following your build closely.
About the scanned parts... If I remember well, there is a sheet with all the parts for identification.
It's shrinked, but could be scaled to the right size if needed.

It's a real shame about the Skylake kits. I have this one and the smaller Fly Baby and Jungmann. Probably the best wood I've seen in any kits.

Cheers,

Dan.

Without measuring, the kit parts sheet looks to be 1/2 scale. Easy enough to do if needed!
