Why don't you try the short kit from eureka models. Laser cut balsa and foam wings.

Hi Pete, I am still here but only as a spectator. I'm still in the same boat as I was when I had just left Galena. My airplane stuff is in California and I am here in the Alaska bush with nothing to do.

My plan is to slowly start getting building material sent up here. My main need right now is a building board. I have 2 in California but it'll cost a fortune to get them up here. I would love to start building with / against you again. Maybe next winter.

If you still have your Strikemasters available, can you measure the tailplane span on either the small one or the Super? Modeler bacplus would like to know.

Stayin touch, buddy...we have to build again!

From 2 years ago but I had forgotten about Eureka Aircraft (They bought out the company who makes the Super Strikemaster wing cores)

Thanks Jim....two years late!

Way back in 1988 I enlarged the strikemaster to fit a .60 size Brushfire pattern plane wing and stab. It looked great and flew even better with that swept wing. Here I am 25 years later and I am doing it again in both .60 size and 1.60 size.

Had a partially built plane given to me that had been in a basement for about 15 years. It started as a IC engine but I am building for electric. Am in the processing of glassing the wing, the second coat of epoxy just went on. I like the above pictures, it makes for a beautiful finish, Mine will be a similar paint scheme..
The previous owner had started the wing with flaps which I will continue on with. Like was mentioned above (make sure you have plenty of sandpaper.

Default Pete, you still there?

Hi Pete. You still building and flying in Whitehorse?

I'm no longer in King Salmon, I have moved to Kotzebue, AK. Just checking in.

Default My latest version of the old Strikemaster.

This is the latest version of the old Strikemaster. The fuse is enlarged to 64 inch length. The flying surfaces are from the Brushfire Pattern plane. The wing is 66 inches. The nose and vertical stab is modified to resemble the F-8 Crusader.
OS 65 AX power.

Now, that looks AWESOME!!!

If I build another, I may just have to copy it.

Looks like a turo-porp upgrade. Looks great!
