    I built one of these in the mid-80s with an Enya 40. If I'm not mistaken, it was out for a few years before they scaled it up into a giant. Good flying airplane until I dumb-thumb snapped it. ...
  2. RE: Military Aviation Museum Pungo May Close

    We'll have to flip for it!

    In the "This has to be BS" category - The first time I was there, one of the tour guides was telling the story that they found the Corsair in a barn somewhere in the...
  3. Military Aviation Museum Pungo May Close

    I just read this story in the Virginian Pilot:

    This is a great museum and would be very sad if it closes. He...

  8. RE: Scale Line Models Great Lakes Trainer Build

    Still a few little things to go, but I had to deliver it this weekend, so I'll finish them up later: windscreen, pilots, exhaust. But this i how she came out. 5 pounds even without the battery.
  9. RE: Scale Line Models Great Lakes Trainer Build

    I made some more progress. Installed the servos and pushrods. Got the cockpit hatch done. Installing the cowl was tougher than I thought it'd be. It's a clamshell and it was tough getting the top...
  10. RE: Anyone have older Tower Hobbies catalogs? Hangar 1 F-105.

    Nothing like that in the 1995 catalog. Closest thing are a Great Planes F14 and 15, and a Flight Line F106 No Hanger 1 brands listed.
  11. RE: Scale Line Models Great Lakes Trainer Build

    Dave,

    I'm making mine with the crank at the bottom. I posted a 3-view at the first post. I don't know if you can make it out, but it shows the crank at the bottom is a 2T-1A and the crank at...

    RE: RC royal Marutaka P38

    Looks great so far Carlos. Just wanted to give a heads up. I scratch built one of these and the dihedral callout on the drawing is screwed up. It shows 2 numbers, one is how much to lift one side...
  13. RE: Scale Line Models Great Lakes Trainer Build

    Dave, thanks for all the ref material, I'm sure it'll come in handy. The orange with the black pinstripe was my second choice, but I'm leaning to the way you did yours.

    Here are a couple pics...
  14. RE: Scale Line Models Great Lakes Trainer Build

    Dave,

    You did a great job restoring yours, she looks great! That is the same scheme I was thinking of, but I also have an old picture that I might go with, still undecided. I was thinking of...
  15. Scale Line Models Great Lakes Trainer Build

    My mother bought this Scale Line Models Great Lakes Trainer kit as a gift for my father in 1962. It's been in the rafters since, and he asked me to build it for him, probably mostly for sentimental...

    RE: Corsair retracts other than Robarts?

    Doesn't it come with stock wire gear? Nothing wrong with using those until you save up enough. Have fun with the airplane till you can get the retracts.
  17. RE: E-Flite 60 - 120 90 Deg Electric Retracts

    I had them on a 12 pound plane for the first test flight. Grass field, a little fast on landing, and snapped the trunions on both mains. Can't buy just the trunions, so I'll have to mill some up on...

    RE: Crashed!-need your input

    Oh yeah, I have one of these! The only change I made was throw out the nimh and replace with a lipo. You can't move the battery location and the nimh makes the plane so nose heavy all mine would do...

    RE: Wingspan Electric retracts

    The Wingspan ones are the black ones in the pics. I signed up for their mailing list and got a note a few weeks ago saying they were in stock, so I ordered them up. Only took about a week to get...

    RE: Wingspan Electric retracts

    A set of Wingspan 60-120 90 degree retracts came today. Compared to the eflite - the trunion looks very sturdy, the ears are much thicker. It's drilled out for 1/2" struts and comes with inserts...

    RE: Mansyu KI-98

    Guess what showed up in the mail today - a set of Wingspan retracts! They look to be a lot stronger than the eflites, but they weigh a bunch more too, these are 3.4 oz each and the eflites are 2.6. ...

    RE: Palmer Plans Parts?

    I think they look good. The chin scoop has a good proportion and the cowl flaps are molded in. I have a 1:48 model I compared them to and think they look good. Tehy're stamped A-26B, I don't know...

    RE: Palmer Plans Parts?

    I got Palmer A-26 cowls from fiberglass specialties a bunch of years ago, I guess this means they don't make them any more?

    The A-26 is framed up and on the shelf ready for skin, in the...

    RE: Wingspan Electric retracts

    The airplane is about 12 lbs, and we have a grass runway. I have robostruts, the maiden landing wasn't too bad, just a bit fast and the aluminum trunions on both mains broke. I could machine new...

    RE: Wingspan Electric retracts

    The wingspan site says they'll be coming this summer. I have eflite 60 size in my Ki-98, but they're too wimpy, and the plane is grounded until I find something else. These looked sturdier in the...
