Building a Bridi UFO at the moment.

Planning to build in the near future:

1.) A .25 size UFO
2.) A Kwik Fli Mk III
3.) A 1/4 scale CAP 21 from 1982 MA plans.

Not sure if the CAP qualifies as Classic Pattern, but it is the right vintage.

Also on the build list is a Tiporare and an Atlas! Just hope I live long enough to build everything that I want to build! :)

I very recently bought a OK Models Supra Fly Unlimited 45. A member of our club passed away and all his things were being sold off so I picked it up.

It has a OS61 and a home made pipe with wood ends? I tested the RPM against another .60 size pipe I have and they are within 100 rpm of each other!

I must say this is my first "pattern" style of plane and absolutely love the way it handles in the air. I am afraid to change anything on it as I am sure he knew way more about proper set up than I do so it is just flown the way it is.

I have two Tower Kaos that I fly regularly.
Also am putting the finishing touches on a Tiporare I bought a couple of years ago.
Building, or should i say rebuilding a 1/4 scale Laser for Classic TOC.
I have a bunch of projects and kits too;
Sterling P-63 King Cobra
CCA T2A MkII
Bridi UFO by Don in CA.
Etc...

Does a Challenger VI count as a classic? I have one that I'm in the process of repainting..

On the bench is the Tiger Tail III, on the other bench is a Dirty Birdi (wood), and and old scratch built (RCM plans I think) Tiger Tail to be repainted and spruced up. Hope to get a hold of my Zlin kit in time for some old TOC type stuff like Chris mentioned. In line on the shelf are a Calypso, P-6, Super Kaos 60 and a 40.
How's it going Chris?
