    Yep, that's what thought it should look like. Nothing like that in my kit. I built a part out of balsa and made it by laminating 4 layers. It came out very stiff. It should hold up for the...
  2. OK, its a lot taller than I thought it would be. ...

    OK, its a lot taller than I thought it would be. The train tressel was not as big a pain as I thought it would be. But when I went to add the "preshaped rear wire cover" I shook my head. It was...
  3. Something really strange just happened. When I...

    Something really strange just happened. When I set the middle and bottom wing on the airframe to get them all aligned, everything lined up perfect. No adjustments at all. I measured everything...
  4. Well, after sorting out the parts for the middle...

    Well, after sorting out the parts for the middle wing saddle area, I put it together. The parts were all there, but the size and the alignment notches for the runners were way off. Not a big deal,...

    Well, I have a KCS 62cc to put in mine. And it better fly on that, as this is the only motor I can use. That means it's the only one I have.;) But it swings a 24 x 10 prop at 6500 to 7000 rpm...

    Olive drab at one paint store is different than at another. I googled olive drab and got over 60 different colors that all claim to be olive drab. I guess a paint chip from GTM is as good a...

    AHH... GTM. The Royals Royce of the RC world. I almost bought a 1/3 scale DVII of his, but then the daughter had to get married, so.. oh well.
  8. Olive drab is a close match? I do not mean to...

    Olive drab is a close match? I do not mean to sound rude, please do not take it that way, but a match according to who? There are as many opinions about the correct color as there are people...

    Well, I must say, I LOVE this landing gear set up. I would think that it could be adapted to the 1/4 scale builds too. All the parts were there and fit well. The only drawback is that I STINK at...
  10. You know, I have gone back thru the build and...

    You know, I have gone back thru the build and looked to see if I grabbed the right part at the wrong time. But nope, I have done my job and measured at each step. I know I sound like I am...

    OK, so I have the fuse all framed up and had no more problems. Until I came to the last step. Step 32 page 45. "Glue the 1/4 triangle parts to the tank floor" Then the picture shows arrows...
  12. A quick update. 3 wings as ready to go as they...

    A quick update. 3 wings as ready to go as they can be for now. And the changes to the right aileron. I swear I must have a kit that was put into the box on Monday or Friday. The issues with this...

    I am just thankful that I will cover the whole thing and then paint it. Nobody will see the mess I made. ;)
  14. Well, the tail group is done, but what a pain in...

    Well, the tail group is done, but what a pain in the butt! Parts missing, and instructions that left ??????'s. I soaked the parts over night that needed to be bent and laminated for the trailing...

    Now just hold on Foodstick, that reduction drive is set aside for a DVII, is it not? Although a 120 inch Flybaby might be interesting too.....:D

    I spent the day building my right aileron, the one that is the "replacement" aileron on 144/17. That and watching the Vikings go down in flames. And adding the anti-torque tape to the three wings. ...

    OK. so I found out the problem with the leading edges for the ailerons and trailing edges for the wing mix up. The instructions say both parts should be 1/4 x 3/4 shaped. But it turns out that the...

    I put the nose weight in the "chin" and during the 3rd flight it broke free. The chin and the weight hit the ground with a thud! Try landing a tail heavy bird. Not something I want to do everyday....
  21. Yep. I thought the parts were the same, both...

    Yep. I thought the parts were the same, both with the slant already cut on one edge. No big deal, I will just make a set for the ailerons. I know that Balsa USA would send them out to me. All I...

    OK 1/3 scale builders, get your instruction books out. On page 29 step 14 it tells us to use the preshaped 1/4 x 3/4 TE. This is for the top wing at the aileron area. On page 33 step 6 it calls...

    Scott, welcome to the group, and nice job on the Dove.
    I think it's funny that my GIANT 1/3 SCALE Triplane is about the same size as my tiny 1/4 scale DVII. They are both about the same length, and...

    That would be a no to both thoughts on GTM. No extra parts left and no Se5s shipped. There are two people here that are on the wait list with the kits all paid for. They are number one and two on...

    WELL!!!! Here is an old thread brought back to life. I was talking to the folks at Balsa USA today, and they really are a neat group of people. I wished them a Merry Christmas and had a quick chat...
