    RE: NEW BUSA 1/3rd Scale Fokker Triplane!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Dick,

    Sorry about the delay, I was at camp with my son doing some Duck hunting. The bottom of fuse and wings are sprayed light blue. The enitre plane is sprayed in green, the gray is brushed on with a 1.5 inch brush to get the streaking affect. The yellow is then sprayed on. All yellow on the plane is sprayed.

    Hope this helps,
    Wild Bill

    Wow Dick, you are lightyears ahead of me. I am plugging along and have tail, fuselage and landing gear all done and will be installing firewall and engine this weekend. you can see lots of shop photos of the build on my FaceBook page. Here's a photo of the spoked wheels going on the axle. I think they look pretty good. Will be painting mine up as Cole Palen's older original triplane.... the one in the hangar up on the hill.
    Cheers,

    The Spoked wheels are the ones from my old 33% scale Pietenpol project. THey are from the old Arizona Models wheel kit and my buddy Dave Johnson is the one who assembled them together for me. I do believe are the same ones he has on his 33% scale Albatros.

    Vogelsang Aeroscale has some wheels very similar to those.

    SWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET! BTW, I haven't been keeping up with these 1/3 scale builds but I'm surprised that a G38 (with drive) is enough engine. I had been thinking that people were using much larger engines (G62).

    The G-38 turns that 32-18 prop at 2900 RPM and produces almost 28.5 pounds of thrust. The plane weighs 29 pounds minus fuel.

    Yes, a G-62 would work, but I wanted to do something a bit different.

    On the other side of the pond, the Brits like this setup. Just remember your swinging a very large and high pitched prop so you may want to have the engine idle as low as possible so not to come in too hot for landing. Maybe not a problem with all that drag once you get the other two wings on.

    the idle speed is 600 rpm prop speed which is 1680 rpm engine speed. At idle the plane will sit still on pavement. I thing the idle speed will be low enough.

    Weather and schedule permitting, first flights this coming weekend

    The BUSA 33% triplane flew on Veterans Day (Also known as Armistice Day) Excellent flying plane, no problems, plenty of power for scale maneuvers.

    Here are some photos and 2 video links:

    Excellent job Dick! Love the videos, that big slow turning prop makes a great sound along with the reduction drive. Can't wait to finish mine! Am on the wing now!

    Thanks! I appreciate the comments.

    Ah, Yes, the wing. Then the next wing, then another wing, then that lower wing.

    When will it ever end?

    Looks like Glenn has removed many products from his website. I will be in need of a few things for a Tripe soon. I hope he still has some stuff
