Hey MKelly, Well Damn, it worked!!

After darn near scratching my head bald, I decided to just go for it, and I think I managed a reasonable facsimile of your mods to Nassise's design.

What do you think?

Here is my “bones” shot of the Airmaster.  Consider it my ante in to the cook-up.  I think it’s great that Bobson started this.  Mike was a great guy and prolific designer.  Ian, thanks for adding me to the list.

Hi all. Nice works all over !
I am claiming my place in the proof of flight column of the cook up table!
After a couple of premature and failed attempts (that caused some tissue replacement and some wing repair),  an unexpectedly calm and warm afternoon, with soft grass and no wind. Just a bit humid, but nothing excessive.
And off she flew ! The first video is one of the last trim flights, 500 turns. I opened the turn a bit and then I cranked in 750 turns. Unfortunately you shall twist your neck, I do not know what has happened with the phone.

Last flights were with something more than 1000 turns and a flight time slightly above 60s.
I was a bit concerned about the flight qualities of such a tapered wing, as a matter of fact the model has been a breeze to trim and glides very well with just a bit of wash out.

Nice flights to you all

Nice flights Marco!  I’ve been attracted to that plane but the tapered wing put me off.  It is reassuring  to hear (and see) it is such a good flier.  Congratulations!

Great flights Marco - it looks really stable. Did you use the dihedral specified on the plan?

Haven't settled on one yet. Research shows 95% military colors, don't really want that. Here's a few I'm considering. Front runners are the white with red tips or the white with blue strip.  Found a picture of one with a tie-dye hippy-esque scheme.

I like that Portugese Broussard Dan.  Here's a few civilian schemes I had in my Broussard working file.  I like the F-BJLR scheme, and C-GJKG with the tundra tires.  For Dan Mellor we have the Venom-nosed scheme...

Hi Jon.
The wing is built as per the plan. Cg and decalage are not described in the plan - I placed  cg halfway between the two spars at wing tip. Stab trailing edge is raised accordingly. Right and down thrust, a bit of left rudder.

Time for a little balsa porn!  The first time all the bits have been assembled.

I'm embarrassed to ask Mike, which is the white with blue stripe Portuguese? I like that one best

Dan,

You had a profile of the Portuguese Broussard (silver and blue) in your post.  Here's a picture of one of the Portuguese AF Broussards - this one has been preserved and there's a lot of pictures of it available on the web.

Bones look really good!

I was finally able to get some Krylon on the Bellanca with this warm weather in the northeast! Felt great to be working outside and making progress on this model.

It's fitted with my first block-carved prop; everything I've carved previously has been laminated fan. 6"x8" with an eyeballed and replicated blade shape, hub is reinforced with 1/64" ply inserted into a slot perpendicular to the shaft. Once the shape was done, I gave the prop a single generous coat of medium CA, sanded down with 320 grit, and covered with brown Esaki and Krylon. Feels pretty sturdy for its weight and size, and came in around 1.3 grams without F/W.

Windows, LG, and a few more details to follow, and then the Jr is finished. Shown in pic with another almost-finished dimer, Al B's Hemiptere.

Nice bones Dan! I see that the F-GJLP now is an air ambulance. When I built my Broussard (non-Nassise), I had used the "Club 41" scheme of F-GJLP (first picture). My second choice was the military colors in the second picture.

Marco, nice flights, congratulations! I'm stunned by the vertical climb performance the model exhibits in the second video  Grin

Alfakilo, handsome Bf 109. Very nice finish.

Bobson, the Bellanca is coming along nicely, looking great.


I worked on trimming the Nardi for some time on this past Sunday. Apparently I got the CoG totally wrong, and had a rough time with trimming as a result. I believe I rectified the CoG issue and will continue on in Lost Hills this coming Sunday, winds permitting.

my bones update...

getting close to covering.  got some cowl work yet to do - took advantage of the nice weather here in Michigan to cut/sand out the canopy plug.  Every time I make one of these I go through so many trials and errors in getting my shape correct. 

What method do you guys use to test if you have the shape correct??

I'll wrap aluminum foil and tape around it. That almost helps - sometimes like here I'll make a paper template; that seems to help too.

I normally first make a milk jug vacuum form first before creating the real thing (and wasting plastic) ...and wasting time putting window frames.

P51A Mustang/A-36 Apache
Wing glued to covered fuselage. Noseblock is in place. I made the top-mounted carb from balsa rather than foam. I am beginning work on the prop, a 3-blader to match the original. I'll deal with the under-part of the wing to fuselage fairings and the belly scoop before adding tail feathers, radio mast, decals ...

This is where I am at with the build and I am sorry to say this is as far as I am going to go.  I have just ran out of enthusiasm.  The last few builds that I have done have all stalled at roughly the same spot. I just can not keep up with a build through completion.  I did enjoy the build to this point and have watched all of the other builds and seem to learn something from all of them but for this one I am done.
