Default RE: .074 MARAUDER !!!

Howdy George...I think I started looking at back issues of Stunt News about a month ago to find the article about this plane. I built the full sized version for a .40 several years ago, but it is a profile. I always liked the profile, but I wanted to build one that looked more 3 dimensional.

This was my first try at silkspan with watered down glue and nothing could be easier. The overlaps on the curved surfaces and wherever there is a seam are pretty sandable, but do need to be feathered with Bondo if you want them to disappear...totally

The stock Norvel carb would have spoiled the tightly cowled look, so I made a compact venturi and put a Cox TD NVA on the firewall.

I'll run it with a 7x3 APC and fly it on 50 feet of Spiderline braided string. Hopefully the combination will keep the lines tight everywhere the plane is told to go....!
