Here is my Bostonian rule Citabria much to my surprise it came out to 10gm without rubber, not sure how it happened !
The tissue is printed with a light dusting of Design Master on the back.
I will post the plan and tissue patterns as soon as I get them cleaned up.

The prop is quite lovely.  Homemade?  I too eagerly await the plan.

Thanks everyone, the prop is a plastic Chinese 6" painted silver with a vac formed spinner.
Roman I have a Bostonian Corben Super Ace I am working on the plan and I am going to join the WW1 cookup with a 3/4" Nieuport 11.
It's been a while since I have built a model and I am happy to be back at it.

Very Nice?  At that weight it is a miracle so far as I am concerned and looking marvellous to boot puts it beyond the scope of mere mortals.

DWCollins, Did you find some time to clean the plan and the tissue pattern as mentioned in your first post of this thread?
I come back from time to time to check if there are any news about the plan...

This would be a great next Bostonian for me Grin

You can just email the files to Ratz/Admin if there is a glitch in the upload process.

Just sent the package to Ratz, the tissue files are orange / white. I am going to build another in the Decathlon red / white / blue when I complete a couple other models and will upload the new tissue files then.

Thanks for the nice plan. I think I'll build one with squared-off wingtips and a flat wrap cowling, like the 'Extreme Decathlon.' Have you considered kitting this design? It sure looks nice!

Not to be nit picky, but there was a published Bostonian Citabria already called the "Bostabria" by Jim Kostecky, in Flying Models Magazine back in October 1983.  Outerzone has the plan.

Happy to provide the plan. At one time I considered kitting but Bostonians are mainly sticks not too many cut parts.

About the tissue files the PDFs have streaks showing on them but they print just fine, software glitch.

Absolutely beautiful.  How does it fly?  I had a Sterling Peanut Citabria.  Was always one of my favorites.
