Cleveland 1/4 Gotha G.V


       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
This will be a long term build thread as I may need to buy a bigger house and a bigger airplane trailer......1/4 Gotha G.V from blown up Cleveland plans. Wing span is just under 25' and the fuse is just over 9'. It will have a 3 piece upper and lower wing. Also looking at possible engine choices DA50's? Maybe a couple of nice four stroke gas? I will be getting all my wood from Don's Balsa and cutting the ribs and formers myself.....My plan is to get the tail feathers completed this 2016/17 winter.

Re: Cleveland 1/4 Gotha G.V

I have the same plans. Not sure where I'm going to be able to buid it...big plane small shop, well, the shop is big but so are the planes that are all over the place.

Started a 156" Wellington, waiting for the 14ft Rascal to show up. I may have to shove all the living room furniture into one corner and build in there.....

Anyone want a half scale Spacewalker?? lol

Re: Cleveland 1/4 Gotha G.V

Not sure if you have a close buddy with similar interests Scott but sometimes a project of this size can be enjoyed more with a friend. Sharing costs, building, assembly at the field etc.

Just something to think about.

Re: Cleveland 1/4 Gotha G.V

Its unfortunate but people that stick/scratch build are far and few between these days.....I know I could start a rant here, and I also know its been discussed over and over again, so I will let that one go. Anyone who has worked with me will agree that I am a bit of a type A personality....... WHAT!!! ITS A GOOD THING LOL......... I have resigned myself to the fact that this will be a long term build 1-2 years........
