Any thoughts about this for powering the 195? It would be a great scale look and the engine was a delight to hear run.

The problem that I ran in to with my Saito 450 was the length dimension. I could get it to fit inside the cowling, but the firewall needed to be recessed to the point that a fuel tank would not fit.

Glenn's OS 300 Sirius R5 fits like the model was designed around it. No mods of any sort were required.

So, if you want to use a Seidel radial, I suggest that you check the dimension from the firewall (motor mount) to the prop hub. If that checks out, then make sure that the motor will fit, in the proper position, inside the tapered cowl.

Well getting by too the build. I finished up the cowl detail the last few nights after work, detailing the panel lines & rivet details on the cowl. I sprayed the cowl this morning w/ duplicolor primer. Not spray can... the real stuff'.
My plastic order arrived... now I can get back to the corrugations on the flying surfaces.

The cowl looks great, Glenn.

My Cessna is sitting, dormant. The most attention that it has seen this Summer, was when you looked at her last weekend.

I've been spending my time doing the maiden of my Stearman ARF, and getting it dialed in.

Hope everyone is having a good flying season,.. Myself.. I've been doing a fair share of it. Managed too assemble two new birds. 1st, a LiL' Tony pylon racer, has a OS Max .90FSR w/ tune pipe turning a 12x8 apc. And a GP 1/12th scale P-47 which I won 2 weeks ago in a club raffle. Has a new OS Max .25AX and a XOAR 9x6. Hopefully will maiden them both this weekend.

The Cessna 195... been trying too get back building, I've manage to finish the details on both elevators,.. have them in final primer. The corrugations are very time consuming indeed. Next I'm moving onto the wings, time too cover those. Believe I will do the fuselage last. Anyway... good flying everyone... Glenn

The Master Builder assembled two ARFs ??? What's this world coming to ???

Me ? I've been flying..........and crashing, more than usual. I've spent a good part of my Summer making repairs to my Spacewalker and Super Stearman (twice).

Tom,

I've been busy getting the new Waco drawings going, and waiting patiently for Dick Watz to come down for a visit, so he can bring my 195. I've been putting some items together so that I can scale mine out too. I'm still trying to decide on an engine. He flew the original proof model on a G-38, but I'm thinking twin.

Hi Bill

Glad to see you here !!!

Dick's original must have been lighter than mine. I know that Wendel prefers smallish motors for his designs, but I don't feel comfortable with something as small as a G-38.

I'm going with a 50cc twin in mine. Glenn is going with an OS 300 Radial. Both motors will swing a 20X10 prop.

Tom,

The original proof model had no finish, and was covered with monokote. Dick indicated that the model weighed about 14 pounds. I'm planning to use a DA 50 on mine.

14 pounds ??? There's probably that much lumber in mine !!! LOL The wood provided by PCK was fairly heavy.

Bill, did you get Dick's model, or the one that Wendell used for display ?

Yes, It is mine. I've just got to either go to Michigan and pick it up, or wait for Dick to come down for Top Gun. Both models were Dick's. The one that Wendell had hanging at Toledo 2 years ago is mine. The red on red version. The proof model was done away with after test flying. It is no more.

Bill, If you end up coming up to Michigan, let us know.

Glenn lives near your route to Dick's. Maybe we could get together and compare notes on our 195's. A group pic may be in order, too.
