    105" Maxford USA Jenny.
    Before pics, as it was given to us after the PO had crashed it badly due to an elevator servo failure. After, as it is coming together in my shop.

    I was able to purchase a scratch and dent cowling and a less damaged fuselage from Maxford as they get shipping damaged returns occassionally. The wings were a mess obviously, the upper-lower spars were split from each other in 3 of them, but thankfully not broken. The leading edges in 3 were shattered but I was able to piece them back together reasonably well. My son and I gained some good experience with cutting new ribs! It took me a while untangling the rigging but it came out ok. It was flying with a DLE-55 but the PO said it was a little over-powered with it, I have an RCGF-45 ordered.

    I am happy to report that the rebuilt Jenny flies extremely well! The RCGF 45 with a 22x10 seems to be the perfect power for it.
    My only real dissapointment with the Maxford Jenny is that is is not very scale-like. To help this I sheathed the wire gear with wood, sourced some better wheels, and tossed the stupidly huge Maxford windshields and crafted some smaller ones. It is still not very scale though. Now it just needs a little expo added on the elevator and it should be good to go.
