The blue line under the picture does not seem to work as a link.

It would be nice to see some pictures of these builds.

The link worked fine after I posted. It did not before from post #30 and I do not know why.

End

Oh what a brother hood to belong to.

I have had 3 Goldberg Super Chipmunks over the years. They are one of the best all around plane you can have. They will float around like a trainer, flip, flop, spin and twist with the best of them. You just can not have a complete hanger if there is no Chipmunk in there.

Right now I have a World model Super Chipmunk with a Magnum .91Fs. She looks good, sounds good.

It was designed to be tame as a primary trainer.

The designers did a great job on this one.

I never realized how good this plane could look, Tony your cowl doors really are a nice touch, not to mention the rest of it. Hard to tell but did you ever get all the details on it you wanted, would look good either yay.

Leroy, yes I got all the details I wanted and learned a lot that will be used on Angie.
Unfortianateley I crashed the chipmunk on a rutine landing as it staled and hit a wing tip cartwheeling it into pieces.

It now resides at my club as a memorial to kit building.
