She looks good now to get her in the air and get someone to take photos of you flying.

Flight report will follow in the near future. Next project is a stooge for solo flying. (Don't have a flying buddy as of yet.) Regarding photos, I have a new Vivitar helmet Cam. Will take a learning curve, but if successful will provide a video of the flight.

That's a really nice looking Ringmaster Twin there Don. It reminds me of the P-82 Black Widow. What engines are you using?

BTW, here is my Ringmaster Junior with touch up painting.

The (Northrop) twin boom Black Widow was a "P-61". The twin fuselage Mustang was an "F"-82. (But no matter, it did look neat, didn't it?)

I love the looks of the P-61 like an over grown P-38 and a lot more guns.

I thing it looks more like the A-20 Boston Havoc or A-26 Invader.
But we all know it is one Bad Ringmaster

George your Ring Jr looks great as a rebuild one of the best I have seen.

The engines are OS.15LA with carbs removed and OS .15FP-S venturi, neddle and spray bar.

My bad. Yes, they're both cool looking. I've got the Walt Musciano book that has the F-82 twin Mustang plans for dual .049's. It would make an interesting hollow log fuselage project.

My OS .15FP-S is really smooth running and easy starting. With those two .15LA's, I imagine it will be a fine performing model, we'll need a flight report.

As an aside, there was only one single "foreign" aircraft (and pilot!) to ever enter the post WW-2 Thompson Trophy races. Year and type gentlemen? Pilot too if you are good at digging up obscure facts.

See ya!

Will they do the 4 2 4 break?

These engines are not timed to perform a 4-2-4 break, although someone occasionally can make one do it.

The purpose of the 4-2-4 break is to maintain a constant airplane speed during stunt maneuvers. Many flyers use a relatively large, low pitched prop to accomplish a constant speed with a fairly constant RPM.

I've been using a mild prop, the Masters 8x4. When I get to fly it, will be able to experiment with different props.
