I've printed off the plans for this one, to build upon when the glue is drying on the Cartoon C-119.
Added: I'll wait until it's almost finished but, I'm thinking about giving my "Slowly" a 1925 era automobile styling, with headlights and a grille... sort of like "Chitty, chitty, bang, bang!"
An antique white wing and empennage, faux wood structures aft, a black Model-A-ish cabin, a pilot in cap and goggles, with perhaps a pet dog wearing goggles hanging his nose in the breeze would certainly set the plane off.
My name is David Terrell. I currently live in Herndon, Virginia; where I work as a contractor, supporting a government agency.
For almost 20 years, before the events of 2001, I worked as a manufacturing engineer. For most of those years, I worked for Bell helicopter but I also worked for Martin Marietta Denver and Lockheed Martin in Georgia.
I am reentering the hobby after some 20 years. Long ago, I was very active in rubber powered free flight, especially peanut scale.
My, how the hobby is changed.
I am a user of the real flight simulator, and started with a hobby zone champ. Then, I purchased a ultra micro T 28. They have been a great deal of fun. I have also purchased the buzz 100 from Stephen's Aero. I really like it. I did use covering that was a bit heavy and the aircraft really needs a high current battery to fly well. So, I will probably recover it with something lighter. I also purchased the larger Park Flyer T 28 and have enjoyed it. My latest purchase was the carbon cub and, like many people, experienced the servo problems that seem endemic to that aircraft. I flew for a total of about 4 min. before the elevator servo drove up and burned out. I'm still waiting for that 200 dollar aircraft to return.
I went ahead and bought subscription service from Stephen's Aero and I am beginning to receive the kits that are part of the subscription. I purchased enough ultra microelectronics to keep five in the air.
