Although, I don't know why in the world any one would vote for the Topcat. Hee Hee

I don't know why myself Terry~!
All the best: Bkf

Is spring ever going to come?

Is my Roo ever going to get finished?

Roo building is 10% building,
90% waiting for things to dry.

Don't drink and fly! You'll spill your beer

OK Gentlemen,

Beat this in the ugly department.

Dunno what it is, who it is or anything, but someone mailed me the pictures.

Gaston's Roo ain't ugly, its GORGEOUS! And Terry's TopCat is beautiful too, its just his goofy out of focus picture that is questionable As for the Reaper, I think its the least attractive, but as someone said, if its got a turbine on it, its beautiful. What ever that Simjet thing is, I think it looks very interesting. Any details available?

I think the SImjet thingy is a pattern plane that the guys in the picture modified. I remember browsing thru a website with that plane on it some time ago.


Johnny I know what you mean about a crashed F-4 looking ugly....you ought to see one that has been strained through a set of bleachers......FUGLY!!!

Hey, Hey, easy now...... Its my goofy 70 dollar out of focus web cam.

The only way you can focus it, is hooked up to the computer. The cable wasn't long enough to reach outside.

Anybody gotta 4.1 mega pixel cheeeeeaaaaP?

The Goofy modified pattern plane is actually an MK Models(Japanese maker) Blue Angel, and it is the best flying turbine trainer I have ever seen. It isn't fast, and it is REALLY ugly, but it is oh... so docile. If you think this one is ugly, look at his latest turbine flying wing. It's at this site, the site is in Japanese but click on the bottom left side where you see the 11 and 12 and you can see it. By the way, that flying wing has almost a 9 ft wingspan.

Take a look at the seventh photo from the top at the first link. That dude in the grass was either killed by a wet start, or this turbine crap REALLY tires him out!

Default MSTES

Mark,

You obviously does not know much about turbine operation related diseases

The guy in the picture clearly suffers from MSTES (Manual Start Turbine Exhaustion Syndrome)

It typically occurs 30 minutes after arriving at the field when the victim has hauled his scuba tank(s), leaf blower(s), 12V car battery(s) and various control boxes to the field.

See ya @ Fl. Jets

The Aviation Design Starjet gets my vote as the ugliest jet closely followed by the Aviation Design Exocet.

Default roo

The Roo gets alot prettier when it shows up with a beautiful prepainted, pre everything. Its beautiful when it will fly one week after getting it. Its gorgeous when it flys through the air pushing 200. And its drop dead gorgeous when you see the bill.
