As I mentioned, Dave draws some really nice plans. I'm looking forward to building his TA152. The Minnesota Big Bird site has some great info on it. Did you see the video of the TA152 flying?
Cheers,
Andy

I have for sale this Royal Corsair kit that is NIB. It seems to be complete, but I have not inventoried the contents to make sure. Please contact me for more information.

$220.00


The buyer is to pay all shipping costs and payment is to be made with PayPal or a Postal Money Order. If paying via PayPal, the buyer must add 3% to the purchase price to cover their fees.



Smooth Landings,

Jake

I snatch a royal DC-3 on Ebay for $200 listed as is, appeared to be complete will find out soon. Also picked up what I believe to be a royal senior sized colt, but need a set of blue prints to verify this.
So who has a colt kit and would go to a print shop to scan their plans? I'll pay the $10 to $15 fee for a scan and email. Iflyrc55@gmail.com
Did pica or dave platt have a colt as well???

Super looking model, I love the 17R/A17F wheelpants. Do you intend to make the paint scheme to one of the actual fixed gear airplanes (I would).
As for covering, it being a scale model I'd cover it with dress lining rather than silk. Dope would be great, especially now that Sig is pouring all new material. I do use dress lining and dope on my CL Stunt models and the finishes are very light. I use two coats of unthinned clear, two coats of unthinned sanding sealer, and then sand it level. After covering, I do the same on the covering material. The reason for the unthinned material is that lots of thinned material soaks through the covering and adds weight. The unthinned material coats the coverings weave and thats all. be carefull not to sand through the dress lining, it cannot tolerate any brealing of the weave. It does however let keys bounce off of it and doesn't get brittle.
Super looking Staggerwing, hope you post more pictures.

I spoke with an old builder who has built a number Staggerwings either the Royal kit, his own design, or based on the Royal kit. He advised me he found the airfoil too thin to fit retracts or to have good flight characteristics. He recommended increasing the wing thickness 11 to 14 %.

would have loved to use retracts but to do so with a royal the lower wing needs to be built in 3 sections with the center attached to the fuselage. if I did it with mine I would have to cut out leading edge of wing and cut into front of fuselage.

Ah yes, a 60's paint scheme on a C-17B. Cool. How far along are you? Love the Staggerwing, my dad had one when I was in school, he soloed me in it on my 16th birthday! Here's one I built for him, and a postcard of our old Beech.

[HR][/HR]Looking for .60 sized Royal/Marutaka warbirds. Zero, Corsair, Raiden, Frank, Hellcat, etc.
I have for trade a mint NIB FunAero SE-5a ( revised/updated version). 60" wingspan, .60 2 stoke, 80 4 stroke.
Kits must be complete in box, new condition. Willing to throw in a little cash if necessary. Will post pics of SE-5a when I get a chance.

I wish it was, but it's a Scientific kit from 1947 with a '47 McCoy 36 Sportsman engine. Dad was a teenaged CL modeler back then, so I thought he'd like it.

Good evening, Gentlemen.

I started cutting balsa for a Bf 109 Emile 4 (for .46 glow), Royal Marutaka plans, already have the original canopy, engine, retracts, etc...I'm planning to start construction in Jan/2015.
But I lost the building manual, maybe someone 'borrowed' it and 'forgot' to let me know...well...
Does anyone here have thie Bf 109 Emile to share or sell to me?

Any help on this matter will be very welcome.

Thanks a lot!

I sure do enjoy glow engines, even if it means an engine out on a multi engine model.
