First SAM/Old Timer build in years..

I love classic models - built several SAM type RC assist planes over the years, from the first playboy I scratch built around 1990. Love them!

I havent built one in many years though. I think I picked up this Flair Junior 60 in about 2010 from AJ Hobbies in Toronto. I planned to put one of the two Saito 50th anniversary gold plated .30s in it. I think this will be a nice, relaxing build and flyer as well. Plus should look awesome with the bling bling up front, lol.

I have done some fabric and dope years ago (ironically before I could afford iron on films like Monokote as a young teen in the early 80s) on control line planes. I had a bunch of Silk from K&S but ended up selling it all 16 or 18 years ago never really thinking Id want to use it.

I have lots of Monokote. About 25 rolls. Some Ultracote but not nearly as much.. maybe 3 or 4 rolls but I have to check.

My email is [email protected] if you want to use that vs pms.
