Default What is everyone building this winter?

I am going to go backward a little, just want a lazy Sunday plane to fly. I'm going to put together a Sig Rascal 40 with an OS FS52S.
Let's here from some others here.

Thanks Bob

Great Planes Super Skybolt: http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_5070795/tm.htm

And a scratched Ultra Sport 60 if I get done with that before winter is over. Unless I decide on something else first

Im putting the finishing touches on a rebuild of my Bridi Super Kaos
that I treated rather poorly this past season. Once I get that off
my work table I plan on building a Sig Hog Bipe. It will be my first Bipe.

A Goldberg Ultimate. I've got the tail feathers and the bottom wing just about done. I'll start on the fuselage between Christmas and New Years. I'm thinking a Saito 100 (that I have) or a Saito 125 (Santa? I've been good...)

I'm building a Wild Hare 28% Extra 300LX that will have a Zenoah G-62 on the business end. I plan on sending the engine to RC Ignition to have it converted to EI and cut some of the weight off.

Slow process but a TF Corsair.

Wing section mostly done



Fuse mostly done



Trouble is, I need to get in the mood to build. Too many other fun things on the go.

I finished a (bashed a little bit) PT-60 a couple of weeks ago.
I will resume building the Hog Bipe right after Christmas.

I was working on a Super Skybolt but I got a little sidetracked and this CAP-232 somehow took shape.

Balsa USA Nieuport 17 with a converted Homelite 25cc whacker engine. I'm also finishing up a 1/12 scale ME 109 from the MAN pullout plan from a couple of years ago. You can see the painted but not finished 109 in the left side of the N17 lower wing picture

Doing a second 4 * 40 with some mods as a quick build, then starting in on a Top Flite P-51B Anneversary Gold Edition which I plan on building with a Malcom hood, hidden linkages, and electric power.

I'm going to start on a 72" profile biplane of my own design. Will be powered with a 52cc conversion engine. Watch for a build thread.
