George- if anyone ever shows us a tidier, cleaner, crisper stack of ribs on this cook-up I'll be very surprised! That's quite a chubby section though isn't it?

Yes ... I shall be showing my ribs in fan mode rather than stack mode.
Too lazy to cut a ply template ... and with my files at work .... I have cut vinyl templates and then cut each rib individually.

Made a start with the V-Witt racer.  Trapezoidal section fuselages not my favorite but that bit is behind me now.

Thanks Pete, I had the same trouble as Stephen. It is a few days I am thinking around the Speedwing LC-DE but was put off by the lack of at least ONE picture. I am not a scale modeller, but at least a rough picture to immagine a decent decoration  Wink  So your pic shows the simplest of all solution, all white, only a few red stripes, go for the Speedwing !

Do I qualify for the slowest to start trophy?

Managed to tile print and stick the plan together and also reduce the full size builders 3-view down to peanut size to compare with Walts plan.  
The tail and fin/rudder are each about 5mm too large, so deciding on whether to reduce to scale or not before commencing build.  
Got to think of the static points now!

Hi all
Cabin is coming along. It's a mixture of basswood and balsa, also soaked the 1/32 balsa in boiling water so it would bend over the nose formers without breaking and I'm pleased with the result.
Do you think your heading for a record breaking cookup Pete

Hi all. Well after digging through my mountain of Mooney plans I’ve decided on the Fokker D-VI from vol 1 #2 of MB. Looks quite accurate to 3-views. I’ll build it to size of original plan and probably move the motor peg forward a bit. Not doing the lozenge camo but go with a pulp magazine cover type color scheme. Walt’s was all red. Need to clear off the work table and get started. I shant be first to fini. Love staying home anyway so as we are not going anyplace soon, this is perfect. Stay healthy fellow earthlings!

A bit of progress on the Upton Baby Ace .

A set of lasercut wing ribs

And a set of situated wing ribs

More to come.

ribs sorted out and prepared for each wing panel...

laminating forms ready

fuselage (or something like that...) progressing well.

Mike, I am sorry I deviated from the prototype picture you posted. In the end the pilot insisted on a closed cockpit instead of an open one... Wink

After 2 weeks of lock-down a little satisfaction  Wink
Just to show I did not waste my time, doing the CAD design, easy with all this home-time.

No-no Pete, space is important... each entry on the list must be at least 2m apart!

Wow ... 40 plus!

Just to show that I am not too much of a straggler!
I too have been tracing in CAD ... the original being fairly accurate to be honest (in symmetry etc.)
I've gone for a couple of full spars and a full wing section as I would like to fly it both inside and out.

Lurker Industries aren't much further forward than Squirrelnet.  One, one! count them it!, whole fuselage side this evening and I've found my documentation for next year's Indoor Nats* as well so it's all over bar the shouting.  Smiley

Still withering over the wheels, but will come back to them later now I know I have some sort of solution.


*Aye, right. Pigs will fly first. Hmmm, flying pig.... that sounds like an Ebenezer project.

Ah... Chiribiri... My first peanut to take of, for 3 meters...back in the mid 80s... I hated that the plan in MB was printed in red background, making it almost black when photocopied...

Ευχαριστώ πολύ για της είκονες Γιώργο, πολύ χρήσιμες*.

Ermm, and that really has stretched my Greek to it's limits, hope it isn't too risible.  Thanks very much for the pictures, I hadn't managed to turn up anything half so useful when I went looking.

Cheers,
Lurk

Slow progress here but the basic Demoiselle fuselage is about done. Obviously it still needs covering... oh wait, no it doesn’t. The nose however needs trimming back to approximately zero inches. (You know you’re in trouble in the nose length department when the wing’s leading edge has a big old cut-out for prop clearance!) I’ve put a brass tube axle bearing through the front fus. cross piece. I coulld’ve used aluminium but I reckon some extra weight there will be very useful.
The other picture is on the cover of Peanuts and Pistachios vol. 6 and sums up the beauty and simplicity of this Mooney design very nicely for me. I’m still thinking of powering my 16 inch version by CO2. Will a Telco shift it?

Some lovely progress from others.  George, I’d congratulate you in Greek if I could but, unlike Lurks, my language skills are shamefully Weick.

Do you mind if I also join in with the Avro 543c?
Bench cleared, new blade in knife, and new sandpaper on the sanding block - ready to go!
I was undecided as to make it as plan or blow it up to 18" span, but decided to go with the standard size.

Malc, gladly, but 543 or 534?

Pete, I do not get you... How did you manage to transform a trapezoidal fuselage into a triangular one, is beyond me, probably higher mathematics to discuss with Pythagoras  Grin

Years ago I built the Demoiselle as a peanut, it is a very light model since there is so little wood and so little covering. Forget the Telco, it would be an overkill. I would go for the Brown A-23 or Gasparin G-24 or 43, if you have them or can find them...
