    Wow, very unique...

    If you're flying ability matches that scheme's appeal then you'll finish at the top for sure

    RE: Andy Sheber Pitts s1s

    And the really cool thing about that one is it is an exact match to the plans and the cowl. Have not seen one with a cowl like this one from Fibertech. So I would not have to modify the cowl.

    Was reading up on it and the paint scheme is from a Curtiss Hawk. The owner and pilot is a military fighter pilot. He says it's a handfull.

    RE: Andy Sheber Pitts s1s

    Ok guy's enough of the fun and games. Not going to build a scale model that is not painted accordingly or something I settle with. The more I think about the amount of yellow on my original choice the more I think it will be okay. I will find out Wednesday for sure. But for now the black and yellow is still my plan.

    The 30's military one is a S1C, no top ailerons.

    I have decided that if the black does not work out I will go with a reverse of the same.

    RE: Andy Sheber Pitts s1s

    Nice choice Robert,
    I like the classic Pitts scheme.

    I remember a blue one on the cover of RCM back in the mid 70's when I was a kid. I think I wore that magazine out I flipped thru it so many times. I was relegated to building Comet and Guillows rubber powered models back then and dreamed of flying R/C.
    Later!!

    Hey, I like that one Robert! Did you show me that scheme before? In fact, I like it more than the black. Just my opinion.

    If I don't get to say it later................
    Merry Christmas to you all!!!

    I was going to recommend a reverse of the same. It's sharp, I saved a few pics of that scheme on my computer for the future.

    I don't know how exactly, with all the company and all the in n out, but I have managed to get some work done on the wing's. The two halves are becoming one. Once it's cured I wil set it on the fuse and build in the bolt plate.

    I can only compare the speed of this build to a balsa chuck glider I used to get as a kid.
    I hope your enjoying this just as much!

    I was enjoying it. Warning!!!
    For future builder's, install the flying wire bracket's to their corresponding ribs prior to wing assembly. Trust me!

    I can see where that would be a problem. The wing looks good.

    I hate to see the 500 server errors back. I hope it is just a temporay thing.
