Hey Murphey, Lookin great there! My Bobcat was built from an old set of RCModeler magazine plans and designed by Bob Morse. The wingspan is 66" and I was using a pair of O.S. .32F engines. I too was going to do the Songbird color sheme but at the time, (before the internet) I couldnt find any documentation. Even now when I Google it there isn't much out there. I'm just gonna recover mine similar to the one in the video, but just for fun, I'll use my AMA# on the tail and maybe do some invasion stripes like a C-47 has. I almost trashed the plane since the old covering was in real bad shape and had some slight crash damage to the airframe, but like you say; "It's such a cool plane".
The plane weighed about 6-7 pounds and flew pretty good with no bad habbits I can recall. I plan to use a pair of ASP.52s this time around just for the extra power. My .32's are in another twin I designed myself. I am psyched to start the re-finishing process!
What kit is yours built from? I don't remember seeing but one other Bobcat which looks like it may have been about the same size as yours. I'm going back close to 20 years now and i only have 1 picture of it if I can find it. Anyway nice to see someone else building one of these somewhat forgotten aircraft.
Keep me in the loop with your progress PLEASE. I would LOVE to see it complete...
Photo of plane after a few flights..
Photo of covering almost completely removed after many years..
Another angle and you can see the center wing sheeting missing to make repairs.
Ok, another angle. Not very pretty
Hopefully she'll look similar to this when complete... Again
