Default Moon Pie Brotherhood

RCU is filled with brotherhoods of fans of certain models, manufacturers, etc.

My friend, Gary Sibert of Decal-it http://www.decal-it.com/, and Pink-it http://www.pink-it.net/ knows that I like Moon Pies. A couple days ago, he called to tell me that my pink tape and prop logo order would be delivered the next day. He wanted to make sure that I would be home, because the package would not fit in the mail box, and he wanted some one at home to accepts it.

I became suspicious, as my order should fit easily into my mail box.

Yesterday, The mail man hand delivered my Pink-it order while I was in my shop. Upon opening the package, this is what I found.

Maybe we have the start of a new Brotherhood, here on RCU.

That is Great ! And he did perfectly recreate the moon pie logo , Nice work ! I gotta admit , my favorite chocolate snack varies between Kit Kat or milky way candy bars with the occasional chocolate cupcake thrown in for variety . I'll have to grab a moon pie next trip to the store just to honor your friend's good work . Hey , I gotta ask , the prop logo that is "Hamilton" brought back a memory from my A/P school days . We had some running Jacobs R755A radial engines on run up stands that we tore down , checked all clearances , reassembled , and then ran as part of the training . The propellers were "Hamilton Standard constant speed" and this led me to wonder was Hamilton once it's own company that merged with someone else to become Hamilton standard , or was the prop on the engine I worked on a Hamilton and the name standard was the model designation of the prop ?

I think Gary said that Hamilton was it's own company, at one time.

He sells 4 prop logos for a dollar, plus a little shipping. They are nice ! If you need something, he probably has the files to make it.

These logos are going on a Ryan Brougham. I sent Gary a blurry image, showing only the distinctive shape, but he was able to discern what it was.

That sounds like a great project . I still have to get the "round2it" for the kit from a company you suggested to me a few years back . I did buy the "Awe Schtick" from Air Flair models , and the kit looks really well engineered . I'm happy with the quality of the wood and how the precut parts are cleanly cut . I just wish life's little curveballs would slow down a bit so I can actually get to building it . I did do the bearing replacement on the engine I've got planned for it and have bench run it to insure it's ready , and now it sits oiled up in storage waiting on the airframe .

I'm retired, so I get all the building time that I desire.

The Brougham is my design. I'm having fun with it.

Hopefully, you'll find some time to build, soon.

In the meantime, have a Moon Pie !

Welcome aboard, David !

I'm sure that Gary would be willing to make you a few stickers, so that you can proudly display your membership in the Brotherhood.

I plan to put on sticker on my trailer. The rest will on on my GP Sportster.

Thank you Tom, while I am not in the moon pie brotherhood, it is clear that Gary does great work. I have an Aeroworks Cessna 195 as my next project. I will be making it as realistic as I can. I will use Gary for any graphics I might need. I have been reviewing pictures of them in order to replicate one. None with the moon pie logo yet.

Sign me up for the Moon Pie Brotherhood, but I like the banana flavor not chocolate.

I'll have to tell Gary that his Brotherhood idea is cating on.


Hey Donk. I found out that Frank Tiano has cast 7 cylinder radials that should fit your 195.

Tom, I called Frank Tiano enterprises this week and the guy I talked to said they don't do the 7 cylinders. Could it be someone else, or I got a person that didn't know what they sell?

I'm trying to figure out why I told you that Tiano had them.

LOL... Maybe you were hoping that they did. No worries,I have been in touch with scale specialties. They don't have any 7s in stock, but after I measured the cowl on the 195, there is some question as to what exact size I need. It comes down to where it will sit behind the opening. They are making a template that I can use to help us work out the best size.

That tapered cowl presents a real problem.

There is no doubt as to where the dummy should mount, but your engine will be in the way. Moving the dummy radial is about the only option. It's either that, or go electric.

That's what I am running into. Based on the shape and size of the cowl, the space just behind the front is right at 7". This where the insert needs to go and is in front of the blisters on the outside. Scale Specialties has 2 sizes, 6 3/4" and next up is 8". My guess is that the 6 3/4" radial is the one, but I am happy to take the time to get it right.

Unless you move the firewall back, and then use a long hub extension, the dummy radial will need to be foreward in the cowl.

A friend solved the problem by using an OS radial in hit kit built 195.

That is what I suspecting which will make the smaller radial the one of choice. Will go through the process and, most likely, scale specialities will be the choice.

I sure will. I am planning a thread to outline the radial detailing, the cockpit, and plane assembly.

Dave, I don't think Gary actually planned to sell; these decals. They were sent to me in jest. I started this thread because I thought you guys might enjoy the humor, too.
