Greetings from sunny but windy Lincoln. I am lucky enough to have a huge common just over the road. A rather lovely model has been found  on it, all the usual suspects who fly there regularly are sadly not the owner. Is it yours? If so give me an accurate description and it's yours !
    It would be good to see the Rascal in flight.

Curiosity killed the cat. Satisfaction brought him back. Now that the poor lost waif has been reunited with its parents, could we please see a pic of what was lost?

Hi Horten

 Have you tried using the HPA picture compressor ? You upload your large pic into the pic resizer and press submit and it will make it fit the HPA requirements and then send the smaller version back to you as an auto download .  It does have the same name as the original so use a separate folder to download to so you don't overwrite the original file with the new smaller one.

 Simply attach this version to your post

If it has a Cox 020, an ACE-RC receiver, and it looks about 40 years old, it's mine.  But I would have no idea how it stayed aloft for that long.

Hi Tim, Is it a Pee-Wee or a Tee-Dee?  Did you  launch near the Bermuda triangle or A 51?

If it has a peewee 020, and is a Guillows SE 5, it's not only been aloft for 40yrs, but traveled from Tennessee to England!
It's mine!

I wonder if there's some deep dark corner of forest somewhere, where one of those 020's have sprouted.  Perhaps there's some Cox 45's out there, just waiting to be picked or dug up, cleaned, and run.

Hopefully The pics of the lovely Hunter should pitch up.... The photos don't really show what  a superb  model  this is. Vac/heat  formed in  Graupner vector board over a balsa mould  with  some carbon  reinforcement. it is sized to  the Jetex Tailored  kit. With  a micro  drone fan  unit  up  the back and a 1s lipo and P/boro up  the front it should be a great  perfomer as the AUW is 23 G.
  Great  to  reunite model  and builder. A tutorial  on the technique would be good, over to  you  Chris.
      Happy flying ! Horten

 By odd coincidence I have a Twin wee. In  flat  twin form it is a piece of engine jewellery. How many 60/70's modellers have NOT had a Pee-Wee ?
