Hi Derek,

Hope you are pleased with the build looks fine to me watching with a lot of interest.

Regards

Trev.

Note:
Look at the way Derek has sanded the fuselage and struts together so they are rounded for covering.


Work in progress: Artesania Stage-Coach.


Scratch Build: Tombstone Arizona Diorama



Finished builds: Westland Lysander MK.11 plus large Diorama.

This is looking fun! RC aircraft are something I’ve assiduously avoided, despite of a lifelong interest in aircraft, and having flown. (I soloed in a 1947 PA Supercub, off of a dirt strip. Field elevation 7202 feet ASLBigGrin BigGrin BigGrin I haven’t flown in 31 years though. I lost the vision in my left eye, and landing at 75 mph, without depth perception, it was exciting for all the wrong reasons...So I quit.

All that time, and love, and they go SPLAT! But, I absolutely love seeing them built. I may as well live the dream vicariously!

Cheers,

Mark





The world turns softly
Not to spill its lakes and rivers.

The water is held in its arms
And the sky is held in the water.

What is water, That pours silver,
And can hold the sky?

The good thing about R/C aircraft is that the flying rules are exactly the same as the real thing. For instance flying a R/C jet requires you to think ahead and a wrong manoeuvre means you have to know what to do pilot wise on the spot because you don’t have time to think about what you should do.

Making good progress Derek and looking good, all very skilfully built so far and it's obvious that you've done plenty of this before. Makes a nice change to see a balsa kit being built on the forum, and it takes me back to when I used to build the old KeilKraft rubber powered planes when I was a lot younger, a lot of years ago! Even had a go at i.c. powered control line planes for a while. Love the smell of balsa glue and doped tissue even to this day!

Keep up the good work. Cool ThumpUp
