Here are a couple photos of my Parkscalemodel Grumman Albatross flying boat model as I near the end of construction, after nearly 4 months. It is a 96" wingspan twin electric, all built of from balsa (Each cowl - not the the nacelle, just each cowl, is built up from about 90 small pieces of laser cut balsa). The open structure parts are covered in Monokote, the balsa fuselage, cowls, and wing-tip-floats are covered with fiberglass and painted.

I bought a built-but-never-flown Hangar 9 Tiger Moth, and converted it to electric power.

Yesterday I flew it for the first time.

One of my models that I put together last year, I flew it today at our club in beautiful weather.

Music is played by me (all instruments, and recorded on my ipad with the Garage Band app. The song is played in the key of G instead of E, which is easier for me.

I sold my wonderful Dave Patrick Clipped-wing Super Cub, and so I am changing my avatar to show a model that I currently own.

A few guys in our club went float flying at the south east end of Toronto.

Heavy winds were coming straight for us so the best photos were taken as the planes turned and flew away from us.
