I maiden the P47 last weekend, now just starting to do the detailing.

This is my first large warbird, and I am very pleased with how it flies. Excellent choice for a first attempt.

Hopefully I will find the time to build one from a kit now. Maybe the Corsair?

Now back to the neglected Nueiport 17.

A friend took some great photos of my 1/6 scale Balsa USA Sopwith Pup yesterday, thought I'd share them.

Well, I think I found my next project. I will start on this after the Nuieport is finshed hopefully in the fall.

Balsa USA Thomas Morse Scout

I've always loved the "Tommy", and the 1/6 scale biplanes are a reaaly good size for where I fly, and they fit nicely in the car.

Some day I would like to build a 1/4 model, but I think I will wait on that.

Here are some shots of my PVC plane racks.

Basically connected lengths of PVC to T fittings and screwed the T fittings to the wall. I then added a horizontal piece to support the plane.

My newest project. The Balsa USA Nieuport 17.

Here are the 3 kits I have built.

First is the Robbe Parrot, built in 1990 as an electric conversion using an Astro Cobalt 05 motor, and some heavy Nicads.

Second is a Park Scale Models Mono Coupe 90a. Built in Summer of 2006.

And third is a Balsa USA 1/6 Sopwith Pup built Winter 2009/10.

All are still flying. I just converted the Parrot to a brushless motor and Lipo. What a difference!
