Hi Everyone,

i have a brand new-in-the-box PAW 1.49 Diesel motor. i am looking for a suitable C/L stunt model to build for it. i was considering the mini peacemaker by ian peacock which appeared in Aeromodeller October 1991.
Does anyone have this article? i have the plan but would like to read the designer's comments.
Does anyone have any suggestions for a model to suit this engine beside the mini peacemaker?

Any help will be most appreciated!

Regards

Scrowoash.

I remember my dad built one of these back in the day when the magazine first came out.

Tissue covered and used the same engine which you have - super model and flew everything really smoothly - I'd have another in a flash  Cheesy

The other obvious alternative would be one of the 'mini' combat models (I used my 1.5 in a mini Warlord and mini Early bird - both good fun and probably more durable than the Mini P., but not as nice to look at and a bit more 'notchy' to fly

I have the article if you want a copy.
The KK Gazelle (in plans gallery here) looks very similar but is not as strong at the nose.
I liked the Mini Bunt - small version of Stoo Holland's Flingel Bunt

Then were there not various Flitestreaks from the US?

Hi Paul and Billdennis

Thank you for the replies guys. i really would love a copy of that article if you would'nt mind Billdennis, that would be great! i had a look at the models you guys suggested and i really think i am going to go for the Mini Peacemaker, it just has a great look and i am sure a traditional tissue finish will do the trick nicely. The other options of course are scaling down a flite streak, but the peacemaker just looks more classic!

Thanks once again guys you were a big help!

It really depends on what you want for your PAW.

If you want a more elegant model than a profile, I'd nominate the Princess, designed by Gordon Cornell.

It's a biggish model for a 1.5, but I'm sure the PAW will have enough power to move a 36" span model. All of my PAW's have enough grunt for the rated size.

The Princess is as good looking as a small model can be, and is  available as a free download from Outerzone.

The APS Mirabilis and Spacebound are two other mini stunt models...

Cheers,

I'll vouch for the Princess as a looker  Roll Eyes

Quite a lot of building in it though so you'd need to be careful to make sure the weight doesn't creep up. Good flier and looks fabulous in the air (I'm a sucker for the Freebird and Thunderbird too) Mine flew much better than it's pilot . . .
