Dave, I have a pretty good inventory of spinners. Let me know what you need and I'll send one your way.

My choice too, on cheeked airframes. Either a hub nut or a hub type spinner. I do have a standard spinner on my cheeked Senior Tele but only because that's what I had on hand back then. Definitely could look better



Oh well, no matter. It flies terrific...."Nothing flies like a Tele".....they say and the FG21 runs like a dadgummed sewing machine.

Maybe very close to a sparked FA-125 or something else similar.

Hanger rash but I should have it repaired for a spring flight. I am shopping a new club membership and plan on joining in April when I qualify for a Senior membership. I'll see if I can rope someone in to film a video for me.

The RH 80 arrived this PM by UPS, the box is unmarked, they did a super pack job. The first instruction is to follow the order of the instructions so you will not cut wood short that you need longer in later steps. More later.

Step 1: Follow the rest of the steps. I love it, hard to go wrong that way.

That said, some of the Guillows kits I built should have read:
Step 1: After cutting out all the of die-crunched parts from the panels and repairing all the broken ones, nothing will fit right.
Step 2: Good luck, sucker!

They have you cut the four 25.25" struts first.

Lonnie. I have to say that plane with the orange and yellow surely is a pretty plane! a ShoeString would look good like that too.

Pimped out pretty good, ain't it? Lol

I like precise, all eleven ribs are exactly on the line they're supposed to be on. No fudging needed.

Thankyou, the .25" x .25" upper and lower subspars are next, the leading edge is a piece of .375" square, basswood, I hope it doesn't need much shaping. The 125 is getting the nod. Each shear web has little tabs that go halfway through the rib and meet the previous one.

Just called them. Current pricing on the website does not reflect actual cost, due to balsa surcharges. He's working me up a quote.

I may only have one arm and one leg left when it's all said and done.
