Chipmunk scratch build


       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I was cleaning up my workshop last fall, got ret of all my gas stuff and decided to stick with my electric gliders (age is creeping up!)- found a lot of wood and drawings, so rather than dispose of it, I decided to give it one more try and the outcome was an electric Chipmunk from Ivan Peddigrew plans, so now i just want some nice spring weather

Nicest lot of wood and plans I have seen in a bit! LOL Looks great as all your builds are, hope to see you in the spring Kai. You being about 95 yrs old you must be a busy guy if you didn't see that creeping up. Keep flying , your buddy Brad "Maddog" Metcalf
