The big Corsair is coming right along. I mounted the big Moki 250cc radialtoday. The cockpit components are completed and willinstall after the aircraft is painted. I have some photos of the fuse with engine and cowling in place. Additionally, I have a few shots of the cockpit with the floor, instrument panel, right and left side panels, and pilot seat in place. There is still a lot of cockpit interior to finish it out that is missing in these pics. My next step is to install the canopy rails. I'll provide more photos of the project as it rapidly nears completion.

Whoa... Sweet Willie... that Corsair is lookin' good...!! Really impressed with the cockpit detail. Gonna' have to get over and see how much clearance there really was between engine heads and inside cowl. Must have been about the thickness of 4 cigarette papers.

With all that cockpit detail and one kick-butt engine... when the wings start folding up and the canopy slides back while taxing back to the gate... the Joe Nall boys can eat their hearts out.

topguncj,

Okay, If I start now I may have enough saved to buy one of these round motors by the time my youngest finishes school.
However I could start a poor boy foundation, AKA PoBoAviation and stand on the street corner with a sign that says, why lie, I want a round motor.

Sorry Guys, I should have hit Subscripe to keep up with the forum. WW I aeroplanes are my passion plus war birds of any era. I'll post some pictures of our trip to Dayton, The Dawn Patrol Rally at the USAF museum is fantistic. My friend Dallas and I are planning our trip in 2011.

Hey you guys ever seen a 1/4 scale Sopwith tri-plane? Our club president just finished building one and he might be coming to El Reno with us. He also has a Balsa USA 1/4 scale D 7. I will try to get some pics of his planes and post them.

Chris,

Was shot down for Tulsa RVS this week due to the weather closing the TUL schools. I will call tomorrow.

Say the pics are great. I hope he will attend. Was that Tri-Plane really a production plane, or was it a prototype?

Bet it looks great in the air.

Our 6AM Saturday morning Dawn Patrol is going to be great.

From what I understand, it was a production aircraft pre Fokker DR1. Fokker stole the idea after seeing the Sopwith tripe. The model is scratch built from someones plans. The first two times he has had it out to the field have been less than stellar. I'm sure by May he will have all the bugs worked out of it. Give me a call the night before you come to Tulsa so we can plan where to go to dinner. My club president also wants to come along, he is pretty excited about our show.

WARBIRD Pilots,

Get out your calendars and PDA’s to block out May 14 through 16 for WARBIRDS OVER OKLAHOMA 2010, and then block out September 11 & 12, 2010 for WARBIRDS OVER TULSA. Attached are the pdf flyers for both. Please print and share with your members.

Chris...

Outstanding on the Tripe and D.Vll builds..!!! Hope Rich (SPADS club in Enid) gets to make the Warbirds Over Tulsa event. Would love to get some video of his 1/4 D.Vll and this one flying in formation. Both are beautiful scales of my favorite Warbird era. Maybe they will let me tag along behind them with my H9 Fokker D.Vll as well.

Got a great documentary I recorded off of the Military (or History) channel a couple of years ago that compared the DR.l with the Sopwith Camel. They showed a full scale Tripe in the doc. and, as you said, Fokker did 'borrow' the design for the DR.l... only thing... he should have payed more attention to the 'cut-outs' in the center wing. The DR.l had it's pilots almost blind at certain attitudes and blocked a large percentage of their vision with the smaller 'cut-outs'. Where the Sopwith Camel pilot could keep his vision at almost all angles. While the DR.l could out-zoom the Camel in a climb... the Camel pilot could always 'see' where the DR.l was all the time. And if you can see them... you can shoot them. The pilot in the doc. that was flying the DR.l replica said that during landing... the wings acted like venitian blinds shuting down his line of sight as the plane slowed down and lowered the rear of the fuselage as it dropped to the tail skid. As the doc. showed... he was almost hanging out the side of the cockpit to even see where the DR.l was heading as he was rolling to a stop.

Sopwith dropped the Tripe after a year or two because the drag factor was too much for the engines of the day. And while the Tripe 'cut-outs' were much better than the DR.l... the pilots still had some vision issues. I guess Fokker didn't get the memo.

BTW... I have your Warbird event posted/linked now with the flyer at both the OK Sooner Squadron and the MVAA websites.

-Stan

Hey Stan, I will be there "War Birds Over Tulsa" if there are no conflicts with other events. I don't know of any now. I also built a couple BUAS 1/4 scale Sopwith Pups, one for me and one for my friend Dallas. Dallas & I will try our best to be there.

I'll post a picture of the Pups when I figure out how to do it.

Rich...

I've got to see your birds in person and have prowled the SPADS website enough to have seen all the pics you have posted. And I have my own shots of them... at the WBOK 2009 and the gathering at Wichita in 2009. But definately post them here as well. The visitors to this thread would appreciate getting to see some good lookin' WWl builds you have done.

We need to find a SE5a owner somewhere...??? That's one of my all-time favorites and I have not run across one as yet. Surely there is one in the state of OK..?? I keep eye-ballin' that 1/4 scale at Balsa USA... but I'm not a builder... I can barely get a ARF done. Have NO work space... and very limited tools. I do have a 50 incher that my Son got me for Fathers day last year. I guess you could call it a 'Stand off Scale'.... if you stand off about 150 feet and squint your eyes. But... it is kinda' cute.

Steve...

May be jumping the gun here... but is there a static Warbird at Miss America's house coming up...??? Had a fun time at the one last year and it was a perfect break during the cold days of winter. Plus... I have shot video of the SkyRaider two or three times as it did it's fly-by's at the WBOK the last couple of years. But to stand next to that puppy and see how BIG it was... was a treat. I had three planes there and my camp chair and I could almost have got all of it under the center belly of the SkyRaider.

Hi Rich! I love your yellow DVII. We will fly them together again.

As for a SE5a, I'll yell at Brian Hole from Anderson, MO. He builds a very nice model and has a 1/4 scale SE5a from Balsa USA. He also has a 1/3 scale Neiuport 17 and Dale Locander from Eureka Springs, AR has a 1/3 DVII. I'll work them both to make your event.

I have two dates now for the static. April 10, or 17. Does anyone know if there is anything going on either Saturday? We can pick the one we want.

Thanks,

Now that's what I'm talking about...!! Definately work on them to get to El Reno and/or Tulsa this year. Just tell them there will be a crowd there that will really appreciate the work they invested to turn out some beautiful work like that.

Steve....

Was thinking it would be a little closer than that. But then cabin fever always seems to make these months seem so much longer.

As far as I can find... the only thing in our area in April is the OKRC Cloud Busters - Fairland, OK - Spring Fun-Fly - April 24. That's about it at this point in time.

Stan,

How about we have a static display during the youth program on January 30?

There will be a lot of people coming through, and may help to promote Warbirds.
