RE: Palmer 132

Good to hear from you too Jerry. It may be tight to have it flying for Castle but it should be there either way. I'm afraid to ask, has anyone heard from greeter896 Gary? He wasn't doing so well when...

RE: Seaplane pictures

I finally got the CD of the float fly I attended with my autogyro. It is a Flying Balsa Scout with homemade floats made from 3mm depron. Probably the most fun I've had on floats in a long time, and...

RE: Seaplane pictures

I attended a float fly last weekend and tried out some homemade depron floats on my Flying Balsa Scout autogyro. Total weight of the floats were just over 4oz. I have to say the gyro flew quite well...

RE: Lanier Mariner 40 MKII >> REPAIR <<

Hey John,
All the ribs are identical except for maybe the lightening holes and the area where the pontoon blocks go. The four inboard ribs are light ply and the rest balsa. If you still have half...

RE: Lanier Mariner 40 MKII >> REPAIR <<

They are Ultracote Cub yellow, Monokote metallic plum and Monokote white trim. I had the Lusterkote plum paint and cub yellow so the cowl and pontoons matched pretty well.

There's something about these Mariners that makes us repair an otherwise normally totaled airplane. I have just completed my third makeover on my plane. They fly so well, very predictable and handle...

RE: Lanier Mariner 40 MKII >> REPAIR <<

Pete,
Any chance I could buy one of those windshields or even borrow the mold? I have lots of experience with FG so laying one up would be no problem. I'll pay for shipping both ways.

Congrats Michael! The photos don't do it justice. Everything is flawless on this bird. I wish I could have hung around long enough to see her fly but sounds like she did just fine!

RE: Fokker D.VII 1/4 Balsa USA

The wind really took it's toll out there. I saw canopies lift up and smash into planes and cars. There were a lot of nice flights in between gusts though.
