We don't seem to have an indoor, "Newest Creation" thread that I can find so I'm starting one. Hope no-one minds.

I'll kick it off with one 20" span Willow Wren, plan by Peter Smart.  Limited aviation has been committed (test glide on to bed) and is looking very promising.  Weights - Unballasted 4.5g, ballast 1g.

 Grin 13" Buzzard Bombshell.....pager motor with a 50mah battery on one of the timers thatJon showed us how to build. It will let the motor run for 60sec.....that may be too long....as I haven't gotten around to flying her....I don't know.
Tissue covering with one coat of clear krypton, and those are blue foam tires, colored with a nice sharpie....

Another Buzzard Bombshell, the nocal from the plan in the gallery by rick121x.  A wee bit beefy at 4.3 gm, but flies across the living room nicely. Our local indoor site is unavailable this winter, of course.

Aerotrope>... Buzzard Bombshell nocal
That's charming.  I do like the fake faux* diesel.

*If the fashion world can dress up (ha ha) the language to make things seem posher, then so can we. Smiley

Ta.  I was particularly taken by that blue as well and as I didn't have any lightweight yellow to match the plan scheme and because there was a "Blue" Wren...

That looks nice!  Did you laser cut your own "kit"?

Indoorflyer - no, just old fashioned trace and cut. I think I spent as much time fiddling with tissue printing as on framing.  Altogether 5 or 6 hours over three days.

Another one ready for test. No-cal Sea Fury; 4.3 grams plus .4 g ballast.
Scratched from 3-views. First time tissue printing anything larger than a decal - reasonably successful.

Very nice! Would be interested in seeing a pic of the "drive side"  Grin  if you get a chance.   (always interested in seeing the variety in prop hangers, motortubes/motorsticks...)

Here's the other side, before fillets and tailhook.  I used a stick 'n' spine motor stick and a sheet aluminum prop hanger.  The frame is coloured with Copic pens to match the tissue - only vaguely matched in this case, as I was unwilling to make the trek to buy something more accurate.  This is a mix of pea green and medium grey, and actually looks better in life than in the photo. I weighed the frames before and after colouring and found it only added .02 grams.

Thanks for the 2nd photo--that's a good idea; may have to "borrow" that technique with the pens. Reduces the stark contrast of the fuselage framing without resorting to tissue covering on the "backside."

Happy New Year and here's to a more "flying-friendly" 2021!
