I have several more in the Queue but these are complete and have all flown succesfully. I need to do some more tinkering with the Space Walker but it is coming along okay.

I have posted pics of my 3 year old well used 140 a number of times, extolling what a great flyer it is. Power is Esskay 400XT, 9x5 GWS DD prop, 2 cell 800 or 1200 lipo pack, auw 19 ounces. Spektrrum AR6000 and 4 micro servos. Does repeated loops from level flight, rolls, inverted flight, etc and lands like a feather with it's scotchbrited Monokote chrome fuselage. Sorry that not many more have built this little beauty.
Went to 3S 1300 20 C lipo, much better duration and spirited scale airobatics.

I have one built and several waiting patiently for me to get to them. Here is my 44" Tritle Tiger Moth. The covering on this model is ink jet printed tissue over white SoLite film. Like all of Pat's designs, it is a wonderful flier.

John, Thank you very much for not only thinking of starting this thread, but I'm absolutely honored that you would take the time to do it.
And thank you also to everyone who has posted up so far, the models are all beautifully done. And it's exactly this kind of thing that keeps me wanting to keep the new stuff coming.
BTW, now that Charlie is back up and running, the next one isn't too far off.
My sincerest thanks to all of you, PAT

Here are a couple of mine in tribute to Pat
First one is the Cessna 140 build from Pats' short kit. Power is an Esskay 400 XT on a 2 cell 1320. Great flier.
Second one is his 60" Ercoupe which was built from his short kit but is now available from Dare I believe. Power is a Himax 2216-850 on a 3 cell LiPo. Looks spectacular in the air.
Third one is the 48" Stinson 108-3 Voyager. Built this one from plans in RCM a number of years ago. Geared Speed 400 on 2 cells. Haven't flown it is a while. Best shots I have of it unfortunately.
Last but not least in the DC-6. Still under construction. Four geared 12 mm feigao inrunners in IPS boxes. It is somewhat further along than is shown here.
Have a few others but no pictures so these will have to do. And let's not count the stash of kits and plans I have for Pats' designs still waitingto be built!!

Now you got us all eagerly awaiting the next build ... We promise to keep posting lots of photos as long as you keep supplying us cool subjects

Great idea. I've been meaning to start a thread like this, but I was too lazy to go out and photograph everything. You finally got me started. I'm just finishing Tritle number 8 and have 9, 10 and 11 well underway. They are, in approximate order of completion: Tiger Moth, SBD, Pitts, Eastborne, Cessna 120, WACO ARE, WACO YMF and the C-3. I still have to add windshield, rigging and some bits to the C-3. Next in line is the DC-6 (Brian is ahead of me), the Brown B-2 and one other thats about where the B-2 is, but I will show it off when it is closer to completion. I still havn't got around to flying the YMF or the ARE. All else fly very well indeed. Hope you enjoy the pictures.
