I also have 5 NIP 1/4 scale "Wasp" cylinder kits that I had planned to use on a Kinner Sportster, that I'd be willing to trade towards the Williams Brothers kit, if there's any interest in them. Thanks again!
My Vega has just a vacu-formed radial, but on my Ryan Brougham, I used the Williams Brothers complete kit. For scale detail, it's hard to beat.

Smile Dummy Radial!

Tom, you've always got the COOLEST stuff! As Richard Pryor once said: "That Bro-Ham is looking good!" How are the Pup's doing? I had a Tiano radial I thought about using until today, when it fell off my pegboard and five cylinders broke off! (that's why we have epoxy and CA glue!) Luckily for me, I had the good fortune to receive a Scale Specialties dummy radial from a great modeler (Jason) on RC Scalebuilder. I have some parts of a Williams Brothers kit to go with it, so hopefully, I can finally get one together! Any flying videos or pictures of your Brougham in flight? I'd love to see some! That Aluminum work is top-shelf, too! Can you post a pic of your Earhart figure? I have one, but yours is probably better! Blue Skies!

The pups are doing well.

I'll have to see if I can find my Earhart figure. I'll post a pic, if I locate it.

They're really growing and healthy looking, too! I raised Bassets years ago. Happy Hounds they were! I think I see a little "Spirit of Tallie" resemblance!

Just received these photos from a modeler in Africa. Scratch built from plans and sporting Graphics by CFC Graphics.

My favorite is the Gee Bee Z.

I have recent photos of my Gee Bee Z I'll be Posting shortly. Almost ready for primer.

Careful with Charlotte and Pocono being outside! You never know when a Basselope might come out of the woods and run off with them as his new pals!

As some of you may already know from other threads I am laid up recovering from a total knee replacement. I still can't sit at the building table so nothing is happening with my projects. However, before the surgery I started a pair of stand way off fun scale planes for the grandkids. Since were short on activity I thought I would post a few pictures. This design is 45 years old this year. Ken Willard designed it and it was published in the March 1974 issue of American Aircraft Modeler.


Ken and his birds



The plans

Ken Willard was using Ace R/C foam wings for his designs at the time. Since those are long gone I bought wing ribs from the laser cutter who cut the fuselage for me. The Brich version gets a OS Max .10 FP as a power plant. The German gets OS Max .15 FP I have both engines on hand.


As you can see I have parts to build one of each version.

Every time I see my Graphics on a model it's sometimes hard to realize I actually made them. You did an outstanding job!!

Now, what are your flying wires made of?
