Oct 6 2012/Ringmaster flyatron

Every year they have a flying world wide day for old Sterling S=1 Ringmaster or clones of of. Just by chance picked up a nice uncovered one last weekend. Anyway just covered it in polyspan that looks like silkspan but modern material. Dope it on dry then heat shrink. Then dope it to fibres are filled. My fist time with it and letting binding coat dry . Point is It will be ready for the Oct. 6 ordeal. I have a nice Stuka Stunt OS .35S with Russian hard conrod. Originals are to soft and wear out to easy. I have two Jetstream muffler for my OS Max .35S's. Graffics an AMA # will be in Colored silkspan. All Natural colors no colored dope or paint.
I learned all my outside stunts with a Ringmaster an a Good McCoy .35 Red/Head. Just for fun if you have any size R/Master give it a flight on Oct. 6 for fun. Cheers..Dan
Later in the day covered model and looks good. Put first coat of clear on fabric and looks nice.

No pictures yet but its covered in polyspan. Came out rather nice, not perfect but darn fine. I will put third coat of clear after this post. Found my colored silkspan for graffics. I may use some Areo-gloss colored paint for some detail. I have a quart of Corsair blue. Maybe some monocote white stars for gleem. USA all the way for me. No comies in my home. As luck would have it found a few cheap OS .35's online for some parts. Hope one has good P/L set.

Another coat or two of clear with final graffics bird will be ready for tank/ engine/ and what ever hardware. Ringmasters tend to be nose heavy. I have a lite engine and might make tounge muffler for it. I use wood props as APC are sheer ughly and very heavy.

Well plane was not ready as I want more drying time on frame. Looks wonderful. I am going to use Os Max .35S stunt. Bought two .35's/.30 on add forum but they have not arrived. I have one very good runner and want a good back up. I'll see what shows up. I have Ringmaster parts to build two more and have another under way. Perfect size to fit in trunk and big enough to handle some wind.

Note the line curve in the second photo, and thus the need for leadout rake. Neat picture!
