Been working full time since the summer, so my flying has suffered, but in between I've been building a fus for a "Great News" - I bought the wings, tail and plan at a swapmeet, so just needed a couple of weeks to knock-up a fus.  Three months later, it's getting there.
Decided to go electric again as my J60 flies well on it.  Nice and clean too!
See you soon.
Malcolm

A nice mix of old and new technologies Malcolm. Looking forward to seeing her fly.

Looks great Malc!

I can't see the compression screw or needle valve though. Is it a new breed of diesel engine?

She looks great, are you going traditional or modern for the covering? Bravo

In fact it is the first sticks and glue build I've done for many years.  I'm thoroughly enjoying it - so much so I've just bought a plan and laser kit of another favourite - the Aeronca C3.  It's the 81" span Dennis Bryant version and will also be electric.  I will make aeroplane noises as I fly it.

GN's covering is Solartex to match the already nicely built and covered wings and tail.  Vintage Yellow with black trims, design to be decided.

I still have many (too many?) engines, all 4 strokes and have bought a new one recently - an OS FS 95V which is destined for another vintage plane I bought that is a very nicely built, fully finished and lightly flown - "Shrimpo" desined in 1939 by Malcolm Abzug.  My one is 2.5X size so 96" span.  See pics.

The there's the "Double Diamond" you can see in last pic, undergoing some u/c beefing-up - still work in progress.  Also 96" span but electric.
As you can tell, I'm developing a big vintage interest, but still keep the good old WOT-T and WOT-4 with engines for windy days.
