Default Mach None

Hello all,
I had a 1/2a project desire on the back burner for a while and several TD049's that need a home. A buddy of mine scored a foam core Mach None kit on E-bay. I borrowed the kit and copied it all. I made my own kit, at least all of the balsa and ply parts. I found the built up wing plans on here somewhere in the past and included that in my kit. I am not sure when I'll start it but I'll start a build thread here for it anyway. Maybe you guys can prod me along to start it.
Rick

The Mach None and Pacer were fun kits for TD's or Norvels. I've got a few of them. Just use as light gear as you can find.

I put together a hardware package this morning and ordered from Du-Bro. Couldn't find a 1oz tank. I bought a 2oz, but I think it is going to be too wide. I did see the one oz tank on Tower....

Search this forum for "Fuji film" . The tank will hold almost exactly an ounce and there are many hits on building it in several configurations.

Built a few of those in the 70's/80's, great flier on TD .049/.051 and full size radio gear. Awesome glide, especially in ground effect. Have fun.
