More from the 2011 Chicagoland Classic Pattern Championships
Classic TOC...a few photos of models.
1978 entries included the Akromaster (6), Zlin 526 (2) and the Laser 200. Model Airplane News published the Akromaster and Laser 200 with the plans still available. Semi kits are available through pals of Rusty for the Akromaster, Zlin and Laser. Rusty simply wants to create participation...participation comes from modelers building the models and need kits!
Hanno Prettner flew the largest Dalotel in 1978, was about 10% smaller in 1980 and the smallest in 1982 (picture shown). Bridi subsequently received permission from Hanno for a kit...Bridi sold the company to Great Planes and Great Planes produced the kits.
I have the original Great Planes demo model and sample packing kit as a gift from my long time pal Don Anderson. My model is in the process of being restored and will have an original Webra .91 gear drive.
