Another fun Hemet qualifier. If anyone is thinking about trying scale competition, this event is a good place to start. Very low-key, plenty of helpful folks and a nice flying field.

Great seeing...

RE: CUSTOM G-62 MUFFLERS

Sent Bisson an e-mail and drawing for a custom Zenoah GT-80 muffler designed to fit a 1/3 Jungmeister. Never received a response.

RE: LITTLE TOOT BIPLANE

There's two sources of plans that I'm aware of:

Bob Holman carries the plans for a 38% version by Bob Morse (Mammoth Scale Plans) and Tommy Meyers (son of the Little Toot's designer) carries a...

RE: Gibbs Ziroli 94

I usually use threaded rods on both ends of the pushrod, secured with jam nuts. I'm not a big fan of solder joints on an elevator linkage.

RE: Gibbs Ziroli 94

Hi Barry:
I'm the builder of morpower's P-40 pictured above. I planked the filets per the plan, then added a coat of Stits Super-Fil epoxy putty to get the final shape.

Here's a few pics that...

Here's a few of my pics. Many thanks to OEAF and Arizona Model Aviators for putting on such an outstanding event. This was my second year and the event just keeps getting better (and bigger).

RE: Super Decathlon VS. Taylorcraft

Can't go wrong with a CW T-Craft.

Here's mine. Built from Bob Nelitz plans at 33%. 112" wingspan, 32 pounds, 3W 78 twin for power. It is an absolute joy to fly.

RE: Gary Allen 33% B├╝cker Jungmeister

Hi Roger:
Gary at getstencils.com did all my masks. They were superb. Unfortunately I don't think he's doing paint masks anymore. Shame, as he did nice work at affordable prices.

RE: Gary Allen 33% B├╝cker Jungmeister

Hi Rabacon:
I used paint masks on my Jungie for most of the graphics and am happy with the results. It takes a bit longer but you get an exact color match and no problem going over surface detail....

Thanks, guys. I'm sure glad she's back in the air.

RE: Gary Allen 33% B├╝cker Jungmeister

Hi Roger: I had an opportunity to re-build/re-cover my Jungie last year. A combination of an overly rich carb setting and too much smoke oil caused the engine to quit. Trying to stretch the glide to...

RE: need some help with Sig Cub/1.60twin cowl

Here's mine. I used a fiberglass cowl from Stans and cut in half as shown. Secured to the fuselage with #2 screws.

You'll love the Cub with this engine. Great flier with a very cool sound.

RE: COX WINGS 27% PITTS M12 ARF 50cc

I sure don't think it's a dog. I've got about 20 flights on mine with a G-62 and really like the way the model flies and looks. I don't do 3D so can't comment on hover, blender, etc capabilities, but...

RE: Jim Pepino's YMF-5 Waco

Hi Ken: You might want to consider using Super-Fill from Stitts for the fillets. It's a very lightweight epoxy putty that sands and shapes easily when cured.

I used it on my Ziroli P-40,...

RE: Sepulveda Basin

Thanks Joe. You're making me blush [sm=eek.gif]

RE: Gary Allen 33% B├╝cker Jungmeister

Alpal: The model weighs 30 lbs dry. A little heavier than I had planned, but the model flies great. You can slow it waaaay down for landing with no fear of snapping. It stalls at a...
