    Hi Chad, this is a modern kit still being manufactured and sold in Japan. I cannot believe how good the plastic parts are also. The canopy is thick, the wing fairings fit EXACTLY when cut on the...

    Got more done on the fuse. It' all sheeted now except for the small area on the bottom right behind the firewall and in front of the wing. The pre-bent sheeting supplied with this kit was great. Very...

    Got the ailerons done. They are tapered both width and thickness. Used trailing edge stock with a piece of 1/2 rounded leading edge stock I had in the scrap bin. Robart pin hinges and the dado slots...

    I've been having a hard time signing on to this forum and finally got through. Haven't worked on the George for a couple days until tonight. Got the wing panels epoxied together with the ply wing...

    Well the initial framing up of the wing went fast but now it's slowed down because of the flap planning. I realized the easy way to do the flaps would be to use the supplied torque rods that were...

    Hi Chad. I like different airframes as I'm sure you know with my other threads and don't have many Axis aircraft in my stable so this was pretty much a must have. I also have a Marutaka Raiden that I...

    More pics of tonight's work and finished changes to the flap and aileron areas. Will start sanding and gluing the top sheeting together so I can sheet each panel. In the first picture you can see the...

    Here are pictures of the plans and the work done on the flaps/ailerons. When I made the new trailing and leading edges both needed to be tapered and angled to match the ribs. In one picture you can...

    Here are pictures of some of the nice features of this kit. The notched spars and leading edges and even shear webbing that is die cut that fits perfectly. One does have to compare the die cut sheets...
  12. .50sz Tettra N1-K2 Shinden-Kai "George" Build Thread

    A little over a year ago I picked this kit up from a Japanese man I made friends with through an eBay deal. The Tettra line of kits are unavailable to the best of my knowledge here in the USA and...

    I was pretty much kidding and don't worry about what people think. The reason I said not to laugh is these days most guys are going with the large CARF's, 1/4's, 1/5's etc and it's just really small...
  14. Ok guys, don't laugh at my little P47. It's only...

    Ok guys, don't laugh at my little P47. It's only 54.5" but at least it was designed by Nick Ziroli (in 1968!). It's an old Champion/Davey Systems kit with an optional fiberglass cowl. Aluminum...

    I personally fly middle of the road aircraft. Nothing real big and only a few that have had a lot of work put into them. I almost never buy a new motor for my planes. I like used four strokes and...

    Got the cowl and the "US ARMY" painted. Looked around for a pilot and as a joke I put one in the cockpit the size of Mickey Rooney! No, it's not glued in. Once the wind calms down around here it will...
