RE: Back in the Game, glue question

you will find nearly as many "answers" as there are builders... Very much a personal preference issue. I use Elmers Carpenters glue (very much like Titebond, aliphatic resin glue), maybe a bit...

RE: Phaeton 90 Build Thread

RE: NEW RADIAL BI ROTARY ENGINE

RE: looking for a new plane for my Q-35

pretty much any of the Balsa USA 1/4 scale kits would work for that engine. It is a bit bulkier that the newer purpose-built engines, but the Q's do run good. Most of the WWI scale planes need the...

RE: Build table

Homasote is the BEST thing to use (IMHO). Placing it on top of a scrap door (hollowcore maybe best b/c it is light, easy to handle) makes for a VERY flat surface. Shim it to level on top of your...

RE: Please help identify this plane.....

RE: BUD NOSEN 1/4 scale CITABRIA BUILD COMPLETION

try a "weedie" conversion (Ryobi or Homelite is CHEAP and they run good)... If you are not inclined to do that, but want a "ready-built" solution, maybe a Quadra (Q32 or Q35) or maybe a Zenoah G-38...

RE: Bud Nosen Giant Scale Aeronca Build

magnets can be a good solution. If done inside the cowl they don't show. Easy enough to pop the cowl off if needed. Use neodynium magents (STRONG rare eath mags). Cheap on eBay. Get ones...

RE: nosen aeronca champ question

RE: Balsa USA 1/4 Scale Cub Build
