Default Pusher prop-jet Original!

I was scanning all the pictures my dad has from the last 20+ years of flying and came across this pusher prop-jet (25 size?) my dad designed and scratched built this thing fopr me when I was about 15 (now 35) I recall it flew....once, CG was MESSED UP!

I know it is ugly but thought you all would get a kick out of the self-taught, self designed stuff my dad used to have me "test-fly".
2nd pick I just found is for Vicman! CBM F-16 circa 1990? I crashed it and clipped the wing about 3 inches on either side later on.... crazy fun!

So I am still just a young punk at 35 do any of you folks have pics of old school speed stuff?

Cheers!

PS. I have that 60 sized Cermark F-20 gutted and ready for a new home, anyone close by want it?

Cool stuff, RAZOR! The scratch built isn't ugly, it just looks like something the CHINESE government might have developed, that's all. To be totally fair, some of our own contractors came up with a few aesthetically challenged jets back in the good old days, too .

Thanks for the pics of the CBM F-16[sm=thumbup.gif] Don't let FBD see the prop on the front of that thing tho.
Man you had the 80s down like four flat tires bro.[sm=bananahead.gif]

Thanks Combatpigg- I think that is an old wing off a crashed Cougar or SIG Kobra (whichever one was 25 sized-)

Vic- I noticed the MA props right away on many old pics, they were the bomb back then but then again, so were teal Oakleys and parachute pants-

Lets see your old pics folks!
