OK, But what is it? I'm sure I have seen one but can't remember.


I started shaping one out of foam at 1/7.5 thats too small

Do you have 3 view and sections? Can you send them to me? And I will do a CAD file. rssickels@sbcglobal.net

"1/7.5 F-106 for Ron S. "
Butch, that would make you "da man" ! [sm=thumbs_up.gif]
Making space in my van already for Waco!
And I don't doubt PS 2727 made those bikes and trikes... He probably even cast the tires! [8D]

Yea, Paul makes the tires. But I don't know when he has time, he is always working. (Company Man ! ) (@)(@)

I assume he pours the tires right after takeoff, and pops them out of the molds just before he lands! Probably makes the cockpit smelly though!

Casting the tires was the easy part, turning that tire mold on the lathe was the tricky part.

As for working, I just delegate these days.

Here's a short video of testing the mains. Pretty hefty gear mounted to a very thin wing.

you can use a glider to find the cg for the turbine jet? cool. Never thought of that. I guess thats why you guys are the engineers and I'm the poser lol.

Andy, don't let them fool you, There is a reason there is a big fence around Texas, Just because you can push buttons on a 777 does not mean you can fly one with auto pilot off

Just jealous guys

I think we can bring the glider!



If I can make it I'll bring the gear or something interesting.

Not yet. Paul still working on the plugs. I think I have to get them now and put the panel lines on.

Love yer stuff guys!
While you're at it, I don't suppose you might entertain the option of an "add-on" shroud for a second cockpit to build a 105G Weasel? Bet there would be a bunch of folks interested in THAT model Thud.

I'll have to get my pics of my uncles F-105 off my work computer so you guys can see it. Capt. Larry Wiggins. First pilot to shoot down a mig 17 with an aim 9 sidewinder and follow through to get a shot of it blowing up.( June 3, 1967 ) His plane is on display in California and a story about him and that famous mission is on display in Dayton, OH. Look em up. Pretty interesting!
