Hi all! Despite my current awful work situation, I came back from this year's Indoor Nats fired up again. I've already started one KS possible for next year and just ordered the bits and pieces for another. One will be another big CO2 job and the other will be rubber. A lot of rubber. Maybe even two lots of rubber...!

Anyone else feel free to join in with their builds for next year. Here's my progress so far...


Cheers!


Dan.

P.S Brownie points if you can tell me what it is and what kit. As a bit of a clue; that tailplane is bigger than a peanut Lacey wing!

That's a nice start already!  Luton Minor, but not sure of the actual kit; Aerographics version isn't terribly large...

Yep; WAY bigger than the Aerographics!

Good spot on the subject, though...

You got me intrigued, Dan, as I didn’t know there was a big freeflight Luton Minor kit! A bit of frantic googling suggests it might be the 34” Flyline one?

I didn't know that the Pushmi-Pullyu was ever kitted...?   Wink

My KS entry - rubber this time - is already made, has two wings, a span of 13" and is light-blue with black crosses.

Pete got it. It is indeed the Flyline kit. I reckon it can be built to around the weight of the Cub and it has a fair bit more area. There isn't enough ground clearance on the earliest versions as drawn, but the plan shows mods to modify to the slightly later G-AFIR (The ol Moorhouse peanut subject) which just gives enough clearance for an 8" prop.

back soon!

Your keen starting this early - not aspiring to Rich Moore's philosophy of starting the kit scale entry a month before the nats then?
Glad you got your mojo back and working.

Just got to decide what I should start on now to be ready for Nijmegen.

It's my year of the "big 60" from late August, so I am allowing myself to make models! What difference this will make is anyone's guess!
I do like Jon's "small approach" ... apart from the smooth flying that Jon conjures, I like the way that the small models patrol the hall with that high radius of turn : wingspan ratio.

Afternoon, all. As everyone here knows way more than me about the kit scale world, can I check whether this is KS-legal?
https://outerzone.co.uk/plan_details.asp?ID=1689
It's the McRae 18" in-line engined Jungmeister, as re-labelled by Golden Age Repro. I have a few of their kits but not that one so would be building off the plan. Was it definitely released as a kit, do we think?

If it turns out to be not eligible then I have a Herr Stearman which has been muttering at me from the shelf for a couple of years and is now starting to make actual demands to be built.

Not sure of the legality ... though it was a Jungmann initially.

Well, that would be a different plan, a two-seater. If McRae did one of those I've never seen it. The prototype and first couple of production Jungmeisters all had the in-line engine so it's a legitimate scale model with the in-line i.e. Jungmann-style engine.

I haven't seen any evidence that it was a kit; just a GA plan. You would need to check with GAR. It looks a pretty horrible build anyway.

Ah, well if they were in the habit of selling plans without kits for some subjects then I imagine that's why I haven't been able to show up any listings for the (imagined) kit.
Not to worry, plenty more fish in the sea.

Rich Moore's philosophy of starting the kit scale entry a month before the nats then?

Ooo - that's not a philosophy I want to be known for! (I claim circumstance not philosophy!) Anyhow, I am ahead of the game - I have nearly finished my 2020 build! I just need to get it out of it's sulking box before April to finish it...

Bit more done on the Minor. Basic fuselage Box together. Still needs u/c, upper decking and centre section struts. Weight of everything so far is 19g, which I think is fairly promising... Pics when rest of fus. is together!

Bit further on. U/C needs bending up, rear decking formers and stringers added, then noseblock sorting. I need a trip to what used to be TMD in Cheltenham (Nearest surviving model shop) for some decent wood for wing L/E duties.

Cheers,

Dan.
