Hey, I-FLY-ANY-AND-ALL! Good to hear from you! The b-17 still has not been painted, but today I recruited the Vice President of my flying club to help me with the paint job, so I'll be finishing up soon.
I have been collecting a few kits recently, I picked up two Royal P-38 kits and a replacement Great Planes Patriot 40. I put a new wing servo in the Patriot, and didn't do a proper pre-flight and took off with the ailerons reversed. The patriot is just my "Bore holes in the sky" plane, I had been flying it regularly since 1999, so I had to have another. As soon as I finish the B-17, I will complete a Top flite P-47 gold edition with a Saito 100 for power (I try to build light and don't normally over power my scale jobs) Then I will start on a P-38. How have you been doing? Did you build your B-17?
I will start posting some pics soon on my projects. Take care, Jon

i haven't started building my royal b-17, however last September i picked up a built but never flown royal b-17 with 4 two stroke .25's but fixed gear and no flaps needs a full restoration, and a royal b-25 built with flaps, retracts, 2 os 46's, scale rivets and panel lines, paid $250 fr the b-17 and $375 for the b-25. I know the b-17 has never flown as engines were spotless, mufflers and cowls and aileron servo were missing and the b-25, i think was ran because engines were gummed up.
