Default Great Planes Super Sportster overhaul


Super_Sportster_40_overhaul. After rebuilding the Nose to a cone shape. Before recovering.

Great_Planes_Super_Sportster_40. This is what it looked like when I bought it. The nose was square🤮. It had an old Super Tigre Como .40 engine.
I had been wanting a SS 40 for a long time.
I found a listing on FB Market place which had a bunch of older glow fuel planes and equipment for sale- one of the planes was a SS 40!
It wasnít in very nice condition but I knew that I could overhaul it so I offered hem $50 for it and they accepted!😀
I didnít have to do a ton of work to it- I rounded out the nose and made a few other improvements. It had an old Como .40 engine on it but I wanted more power so I went with a 72 Four Stroke and recovered it with Monokote- the BEST covering available.
it came out exactly how I envisioned it and flies great!
I love this hobby!
