Here is the tail of Wardair Jetliner No.1 , its cut straight from a sheet of 7mm Styrofoam and will be sanded & shaped then covered with 1/32 balsa sheet.

So for those of you who thought I'm not really going to build the first flying RC Avro Jetliner . . . . .think again.

Re: RC C-102 Avro JetLiner Build!

Hello Chris,
Subscribed to your great thread. Thank you for your kind words towards you frozen friends to the North!!! Will be great to see a -102 in the Air. I have the great opportunity to turn wrenches on many "Canadian birds" daily and they are well built machines that are built and designed differently.. We have DHC-2's -,3T's and -6's.. all are old and all are still great workhorses as the 102 would have been. We have some "American birds" too - Beech's , but they are different... Fast and efficient but I doubt they will still be around working in 60 years..

One thing to consider.. there is always a trickle down effect in aviation. As the big airlines get new machines the older ones get "passed down" to smaller local carriers... Not sure what this would have meant in the -102's case but it would have probably have ended up in the hands of many smaller Canadian and American carriers

Happy new year... all the best with your project...

Thankyou Cat! I think the C-102 would have been a prestigious Candadian airliner to have in one's fleet . . . . .atleast for a few years that is LOL But Its Fun to imagine what may have been Sir, Avro Canada created the 737 long before Boeing Did!

Hey, Cat 1, I used to go to our cabin in Lac La Ronge every summer when I was small. Flew in on float planes usually with Athabasca Airways, now Air Tindi, I believe.
Flew in Beavers, Otters, Twin Otters, Twin Beech, Norseman,
I loved it. nothing like northern float flying.

Athabaska Airways merged with Air Sask and became "Transwest Air" and I work for Transwest Air...

Some of those planes you flew on as a kid are ones we still use today.. Still have Beavers, otters and Twin Otters in the fleet and they still earn their keep.

Re: RC C-102 Avro JetLiner Build!

I love the shape!! It was truly one of the planes designed with a little class. I could spend hours staring at the tail of a beaver or an otter or a mosquito and wonder what the designer was thinking.. But i think they were just going after "the look"

This is going to be wonderful build.
