Hi John

You certainly are busy too mate and don't forget your Stukka which will be a lovely model when built Bravo
Look forward to seeing your big Mustang back up there Glee
The weather certainly is grim at present but at least with this hobby there is always something to tinker with on our planes at home Bravo

Thanks for your update Bravo

After reading what you pair have been up to I decided to put my 2p in.

I have finished of getting the super sportster up to flying condition, It has had the bottoms of the wings repaired and a new firewall and front end. I have put the same engine in this as the one in the Decathlon its a HH 26cc petrol engine and if this one runs as well as the Decathlon I will be a happy Bunny.

I have also replaced the undercarriage as it should be on the wings and it looks much better.

So all I need to do now is balance it and then at a later date put the cowl on.

Oh I also have the giant Wot4 to sort out as well, that needs the thrust angle sorted out as I don't have enough down thrust or side thrust. So once that is sorted out I will have three all flyable again.
Then there is the PT-19 by seagull to build but that one is still in its box. plus I need a 26cc petrol for that one and more servos "They are on order" lol!

Hats off to all you stick builders.the hours of work that goes into that type of model build is amazing and the detail you guys put in superb.
I would love to build one but have not really the time or the patience to STICK with it lol! also the thought of wrecking it afer all that hard work would be devestating so i opt for the ARTF type which i still trash but not so painful chaps Embarassed

Mike's Waco is looking great and he has done a quality job of the build. John is spraying a primer coat this week so should not be to long before we see that beauty at the patch Bravo what kit are you building from sticks form Steve Question

I built the Prangster from sticks (The two spar bits in the wing) lol!

Good luck to you all and lets see more lads as very interesting to read when Crapenders is on Mad

Well done Bravo

Theres some very busy folk on here!

I'm just finishing my big Fox glider (110"), need to crack on with the 84" Geebee Y with petrol power. Not even looked in the box of the Sebart EP acro thingy, the piccy looks cool tho!

On top of that I have ordered myself a new workshop, sadly nothing quite on the grand scale of J Hall esq (we would all love that set up I'm sure you'll all agree!), but at 20' x 10' I hope it will serve me well... The missus has even suggested a TV and mini fridge but Im not sure if shes shipping me out!!

The new shop will need to be insulated and lined inside so that will keep me out the pub for a while..... Anyone know a good sparkie for getting it all wired up???

Sounds like a party affraid

Looking forward to seeing the glider ray rumour has it that bret may soon have his glider ready as its not been long in construction.....


Ive ordered a 1/3 scale Fournier RF4 from falcon aviation, probably a bit big for a first scale project but looking at their website and speaking to them i think i should just about be able to build it as they say it goes together like a 3D jigsaw.... so will give it a go! Very Happy

I well have a work shop party, everyone to bring a 6' x 4' sheet of 10mm marine ply.......luvverly1

Steve, the Fournier RF4 sounds good, looked it up and the wood cut is good quality, that'll keep you out of trouble for while! She's gonna look good in the air, and at 12' foot you should be able to keep her in your sights!!
