Tim,
       A very nice build that looks very elegant with a weight that is very respectable. I look forward to the flying reports. I flew a Miss 35 last weekend with very little fuel in the tank and a SAM35 for power as well as a RedPhin 09 powered Simplex 24. There was almost no drift for 3 hours before the land sea wind system set in.

Lovely model Tim. It looks very elegant in the blue and white scheme and I really like the elliptical dihedral

Very nice. I read once that the wingtips on the Ritz Continental almost touched on tow!

Lovely clean finish - lovely clean bench, good pictures, says something.  Some pictures of the radio installation could be of help to some others who are toying with radio assist elsewhere on this site.

It is a pity that it will get spattered with castor oil, etc., but the ether smell will compensate.  Good luck with the flying.

Just about done!

Weighing in at 23oz (c/w with Indian Mills 1.3, and 3 channel radio).

Fuselage is covered in Litespan and Solarfilm, and the wing in mylar/tissue, which has induced that elliptical dihedral (with Solarfilm trim)

The logos were comped up on the Cricut vinyl cutter from Solartrim.

Just need the lockdown to end.  March 29th seems to be the date for the club field to re-open!

Tim

I note that you have used Solarfilm on the fuselage Tim. If it is yer basic Solarfilm and not the Supershrink Polyester type, then expect it to bubble up and go baggy once diesel fuel or exhaust oil hits it.

Big day today!

The Answer had two flights, and behaved faultlessly. 

I ran a couple of tankfuls through the engine first, but it didn't falter in the air at all.

To say that I'm very pleased is an understatement!
