Nice looking plane. I like the bomb drop caught on-camera. One minor point for future reference. On the photos of the right side of the aircraft, the squadron code letters should be "WZ", not ZW....

Hi Ken: that is probably one of the most frequent (and understandable) comments I have heard regarding the huge ammo doors on the P-47. I guess we all see them and wonder "why would they design such...

Here are a couple more that I found. One is an ESM totally redone (exterior wise) 85" wingspan plane that is of Lt. Robert M. "Butcher Bob" Hanson's Corsair that he flew in the Solomon Islands during...

Jack, outstanding work, as usual! I found a pic I took of one of your planes back from the Gunsmoke 2008 competition. I'll attach it here.

This is an interesting photo. I believe I took these two photos of Fire Ball back at the Gunsmoke Qualifier in Phoenix in 2008. I had made several P-47s with opening gunbays, and this Team Scale...

Those pictures by David Hart are nothing short of spectacular! It is hard knowing if they are an rc plane or the full sized versions. Well done!

I have been going through some old photos and put...

For what it's worth before this thread sinks into oblivion, the change to the tailwheel on the Mossie worked great. Did a test flight on it yesterday and it handles as good or better than before. No...

Hi Stuka Barry: thanks for the great tips! I am very wary of putting anything on foam that it disagrees with! I have been stung in that way, too. I'll use your advice on my next project. I don't have...

paint that sticks for foamies??

Hi All: I am going to redo a 1700mm P-47D to a different paint scheme. I'm wondering if anyone out there has ideas on paints that will resist peeling off from the foam even when the least tack tape...

Glue has dried, took it out to the driveway for some taxi tests. It is as good or better than before for strength and maneuverability, at least on the ground so far. I lowered the tailwheel about as...

Tailwheel adjustment on Freewing Mosquito for better scale look

Hi All: never one to leave things well enough alone, I did a little "surgery" on my Freewing foamie Mosquito today. It has been a fun and fairly easy plane to fly and land, but the tailwheel height...

RE: question on propellers for Dynam foamie planes

After some more looking on the web, I did finally find some 13x7 props. But I am still interested in expert opinions on the difference in flight characteristics of a 13x7 versus an 11x7, especially...

question on propellers for Dynam foamie planes

Hi All: I am looking for a couple of extra propellers for my Dynam Tempest and Hellcat planes. They came with 13x7 three-bladed props. Problem is, all I see for sale from Dynam now is 11x7...

RE: A great place to buy a plane

Boy, can I second that motion!! After some horrible experiences with Banana Hobbies, I lucked into finding Motion RC. The two owners Mark and Tom are rc flyers themselves, and wanted to build a...

RE: mechanism for making a retractable tailhook on Hellcat?

Sounds good, Chic. I'll hand off the baton to you and please let us know how your Avenger comes out, and if you work in a operational tailhook with it. I suppose maybe others have done some working...

RE: mechanism for making a retractable tailhook on Hellcat?

Hi All: photos finally uploaded ok. Might have been a glitch in the network or something. But as you can see, the tailhook is down where it is supposed to be.

RE: mechanism for making a retractable tailhook on Hellcat?

SUCCESS!! I got the opportunity to take the plane out today. My friend Leo flew it for me while I operated the tailhook switch and photographed it. It really works great, now! The first pass we did...

RE: mechanism for making a retractable tailhook on Hellcat?

Thanks, Chic. The ultimate goal of this little project is to allow me and others to branch out a little bit with some potentially cool extras onto scale aircraft. It was a little too windy this...

RE: mechanism for making a retractable tailhook on Hellcat?

Hi all: well, the technique of rapidly moving the tailhook down didn't work. It still wasn't enough to counter the airloads while flying to lock it onto the magnet.

I did some more...

RE: mechanism for making a retractable tailhook on Hellcat?

One thing that just occurred to me is the method I used to deploy the tailhook and it not going to the full 90 degree down position from the fuselage. I was concerned that rapid move of the knob on...

RE: mechanism for making a retractable tailhook on Hellcat?

Well, I did an operational test of the tailhook this morning with the magnet, but unfortunately I still don't have a permanent solution to the airloads blowing the tailhook almost straight back...

Well, now you know how to build the internal tailhook! It looks cooler, anyway!

Good luck!

RE: mechanism for making a retractable tailhook on Hellcat?

Hi Chic: looks like a marvelous build! You should have plenty of room to put the tailhook in there. That would really look cool doing the low pass with gear, flaps, AND tailhook down! There may be...
