Piperjoe is wrong. It is not an assembled air-frame, but you can see a lot of craftsmanship in those parts. Well done, look forward to more photos!

"Nice craftsmanship on the Jimmie Allen BA Parasol. Please post a photo when you have this model finished." from above post.

Don't see a thing said in my post about an assembled airframe, Petrie. And, perhaps, you could use a little more tact with your comments....

Thanks Joe.
I have way too many stick and tissue projects. Seven planes all in various stages of completion and now I started a Fokker D VIII which I scaled down from Walt Musciano plans. Four are completed airframes, two nearing completion and now the Fokker. I am building it to honor my late father, who built the full size (over five foot) aircraft in 1959. This thread has been the boost I needed to finish my planes. Then of course there's the honey-do list.

Is that the one that was supposedly based on the maple seed?

Indeed - they got it finished one autumn, but it had to be stored over the winter. When they got back to it in spring moisture had warped the wing beyond repair and it had to be destroyed. It would have been quite a viable flyer I think as RC versions have flown well. My Sif is only vaguely similar, but is a great flyer.

I believe that design was based on the Zanonia Seed, which is the name of the seed shown in post #965. Years ago, while teaching grade school modeling classes, I used a Zanonia Seed model made from foam meat packing trays as an introductory flying model project (from an article in a Model Aviation magazine). The kids loved it and it really flew... well, glided quite nicely.

Soft landings,

Joe

Sorry Joe,

Please accept my apologizes. Must have been having a really bad day that day. Read things into your post that where not there. I was wrong I'll be more careful in the future.

Ugwi Stik

I won an old (1978) Sig Kiwi kit at one of our club fun fly's ($5) and since I already have a couple of pattern ships I decided to do something different....hence, I turned the Kiwi's fuse over and straightened a couple of curves, scalloped the control surfaces, angled the wingtips like a Stik, and built a round fin.....Voila' ! an Ugwi Stik........with sewn hinges.....

Nice pics O_P. I ended up with a beaten up Ugly Stick one time - stripped it back and recovered it. It still lived up to its name, but at least was a bit more presentable. Post up some pics when she's done.

Came into possession of a beaten up 20 years old Hi Phase sailplane recently and gave it the same works, also added ailerons - came up pretty well and flies great.

Although I started covering the stabs, this is most likely the last barebones balsa shot.
