Lots of planes need to be finished, but what is on the board right now :

Planes #1 - Building 3 Hostetler 34% Edge 540's to be powered by a home made 100cc (also yet to be built) One of these are for my Machinist friend.

Plane #2 - 40 Size Great Planes Cap 232 with a 65 Saito (91 Saito in the wings if 65 not strong enough. 91 is actually lighter than the 65 hhmmmm).

Planes #3 - Have a plan for a 40 size 66" wing Crop Duster, building 2, 40 size, and just blew up the plans to 100" wing for Saito 150 power.

Lots of others but that is the main focus right now.

Aside from refinishing one seriosly beaten Trainer (it was a punishing season for her) I'm curently building
1) An Ugly Stick for a sixty with a few mods, clipped wings, make it a taildrager, and try my hand at a pull pull system. Just the flight controls left then on to covering.

2) And the DH88 Comet for 2 OS 46's from a set of plans I got from Airborne magazine. Wing, nacells, and tail are all framed up so the fuse is next.

Should be what aren't I building...

Hi everyone!

OK here goes.....

On the Board Currently!
1) Unionville 6' Otter (going on 7 years....) highly modiffied with double slotted fowler flaps and cargo drop! and floats!

2) CG Skylark 56 - In twin engine configuration - for twin trainer! Had one before with two Enya .19's. Many many moons ago when I was a newbie.. thought I knew it all and went out and flew it by myself... lasted a grand total of 28 seconds before a wing caught and it cartwheeld itself back into a kit! Gona try a pair of .25s on this one!

3) SIG Kouger - the wife bought this one.. only thing model related she ever bought so i gota finish it!

4) Shadow 30 - My own original design that was inspired by the late Ken Wilards "Kitiwake". Single float with wingtip sponsoons. OS Max .30 for power. Simple box construction with a straight planform wing, nothing fancy.

On Deck!
1) De Haviland DHC-4 Caribou - 8' span 2 x .60 or 2 x .90FS
2) De Havilland DHC-5 Buffalo - 8' span 2 x .60 or 2 x .90FS (do you see a trend here?)
3) Heinkell He 111 - 74" span , 2 x .30
4) Cessna Crane - 72" span, 2 x .30
5) Hwker Hurricane - Scale Combat, .25cuin
6) Northrop P-61 Black Widow - 72" span 2 x .25 - I am looking into either the Ziroli or the Don Smith plans as an alternative.
7) Douglas AD-1 Skyraider - 80" span, Enya .90 or 1.20 FS
8] Dornier Do 335 Pfeil - Jack Bayle Design, electric
9] He 219 UHU - Twin German night fighter, jack Bayle electric

Just working on a 26% Skybolt. Plan to put a Quadra 52 in it. Plans are by Dario Brisighella. He drew them up together with Lamar Steen aroung 1988, before Steen passed on, so they are quite authentically scale. This is the open dual cockpit version not closed as most newer Skybolts are. Airfoil is symetrical and it should come in around 20lbs. which is about 8oz. sq. ft. wing loading, so I expect it should fly OK. Will cover it with Monocote or Ultracote to keep the weight down even though I am an old "dope and cloth" guy from way back. Have to keep up with the times! The frame has lots of Bass Wood and Ply so I think it will be strong enough. I'm also attempting to build my own F/G cowl and wheel pants. Got the pants done and the cowl mold but having real fun with the cowl!! Also having real fun with the ailerons as I'm trying to make them scale (freize type? - spelling?) The slave strut from the lower to upper aileron will run through the wing plane ahead of the hinge line as in the original - that is fun as well. Oh well - I guess that's why we do these things! - for fun! Fuse is done and gear mounted along with tail feathers. Been at it since Sept 1st - finish framing date - Dec. 30th!!
Also have a Venture 60 kit to put together with new OS 61 FX I got at the London Swap Meet. Putting trans. red monocote on it., and floats!!
Have original Aeromaster to repair (20 years old!) and LT40 to repair. My winter has been spoken for. Yes retired and alone has its advantages!!

The sooner you fall behind, the more time you will have to catch up.
