    QM15 Caudron

    I just finished a DeBolt QM15 Caudron. I have not flown it yet, I did try last weekend but the weather did not cooperate. The engine is the K&B Schnerle 15 and is about the same age as the kit was. I have installed small pneumatic retracts. The plane is covered with 1/2 oz glass and painted with Nelsons paint. All the painting was with a brush. For some reason it would not spray very well. If you come across a kit of this airplane it is a carvers delight. I have more time in this than I care to estimate. The plane weighs only 38.5 oz so it should fly well and not to slow. Here are a few pictures.

    Wow, that is really cool. I love the switch placement. That blue is smokin!
    A guy who used to live on this site and now is rarely here due to the "upgrade".
    Most likely fading away till the My Forums is fixed. Too bad.

    Vicman, The switch placement had me going for a while then it suddenly hit me and it is where you see it. There is not much room inside that fuse. I can't imagine trying to put the old larger radio gear in it.
    I will try and maiden it Friday after work, I will let everyone know how it went.
