Hello Jim. All is good. Trojan is a great flyer and I am having a ball with her. Wife and i were blessed with twin boys this past Janaury, so I have not had alot of time to build anything. Just now starting to get back to it.

Hello Gary!
Thank you for all the info.
I had read in a nearlier post, what is the hot glue you were talking about? Is it just lue that you put in a hot glue gun from a crafts staore? Or something more?

For all tha twer ecurious about the Giant T-28 here it is Directly from siearra!

Justin,

Nice to here from you.

Here is the info on the T-28:

Wing Span 112"
Scale 23%
Weight 45 to 50 lbs.
I expect to have the plans, laser wood kit and retracts ready
at the end of June or Early July.

The plane need at least a 120cc gas or the Moki/RCS 215 Radial.

The fuse is very large and would have to be shipped via truck line.
I have delivered a few to some shows like Toledo and Top Gun.
I hope to have 4 more fuses ready by the end of June.

The wing is 3 Pc. with the center section molded into the fuse.
Wings break at the end of the gear mounts.

The kits cost $2800.00 and includes the Glass Fuse, Wood, Retracts, Canopy,
Canopy Frame, Gear and Cowl Doors, Wing Tubes, Flap Hinges.

It does Not include Cockpit, Gear Door Cylinders, Wheels, Brakes,
Pushrods.

Let me know if you need any more info.

Thanks,

Darrell Tenny

There was a nice pict that was sent in the e-mail but for some reason I was u/a to save it....




I also just recieved a E-mail form Iron Bay models...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
They said that they were up and running, just working on a defence project.. I think I will order the Trojan for mIron bay, or the corsair! Not sure, but the 2,800 seemed a bit rich for my blood for the sierra trojan..... My Dad and I would be building it together, so I guess I will see what he thinks. For that price I could pick up the Airworld fw-109 and only need to paint it!

I had pased on a Original Bryan Gee-Bee kit on e-bay because it didn't have instructions. The guy said that he had talked with Ironbay models and that they could get a manual, but I didn't want to take that chance. THe model sold for 450$ Is that a good deal?? I guess it is if you like the Gee-bee. I didn't think it was big enough..

Hello all,
How do you cool the engine on your builds? I am building one now, and cannot figure out a good / functioning way to get the hot air out of the cowl. The scale openings will not suffice.
Thanks in advance,
Jerry

On mine I had the same concerns about cooling. I have a 3w-100 twin in mine. There are side vents on the cowl and some simulated exhaust tubes also. But what I did was cut some 1" holes in the firwall behind the cylinders and where the speed brake is I made matching holes in the fusealge so that the air going into the fuse had a place to leave. Seems to work as the engine does not appear to lose any power through out the flight.

Hello JKEZE,
I am also building a Trojan. I have a question to your post on cooling. I understand the holes in the speed brake. My question is : Did you drill just one 1" hole behind each cylinder head?
Thanks
