    RE: 85 in Val with removable scale surfaces

    Rich,

    As I said above, I too have these plans printed out at 85" and hope to build it in the next year or so. You are very right about the cowl. Small for a gasser. What changes did you make to the plans? Did you use the removeable wings with the tube and the center section built into the fuse? Also, what engine did you use? Forgive me if I missed it earlier in the thread. BTW, I would love to see more pictures.

    RE: 85 in Val with removable scale surfaces

    Jim my wing is one piece no tubes. According to my 3 view and plastic model the shape of the fush was off in a few places. Also I added 1/8 lite dubbler to the inside of the fush.
    I am using a MVVS 35 gaser. I will try to get more pic this week. Rich

    RE: 85 in Val with removable scale surfaces

    Rich,

    I see you are powering yours with a MVVS 35cc engine. I am not familiar with that engine. Where can you buy one?

    Looking forward to your flight report.

    RE: 85 in Val with removable scale surfaces

    Jim the MVVS I don't think is imported in the states anymore. I bought mine here on RCU. I think it is the same as the Evolotion motor. If you check in the gas motor fourm, there is a guy from Europe that sells them. Rich

    RE: 85 in Val with removable scale surfaces

    Baldeagle those big planes are sure impressive. Going to maiden my little 42" scratch - F1M2 seaplane this weekend. I've got a build thread over in RCG scratch foamies for it. Going to build a Val and was plannig on 48" w/ a little os.25, now after seeing yours I may build for .61 engine that sittting idle. I've got two little piot figures at 1/7 scale that my son spent days on and will probably design around those. Thanks for the build thread photos - really sharp work. -Canvasback
