2010 Toledo Show

I just returned from setting up the Society of Antique Modelers' booth for this year's Weak Signals Expo.

eBay and the economy may have put a pinch in the Swap Shop this year, but the rest of the show seems to be shaping up well.

Hopefully, we can get some photos up on the web starting tomorrow.

Maybe see you in Toledo

Ryan, I'll be heading down on Sat. from Canada.
Maybe Franny will send a few pictures down to set up in model display area?
If the Valkrie was there, it would be a sure winner.
And lastly, I've got to get some diesel fuel from Eric.

Hey John, if you see any OS type F glow plugs NIP please pick me up a few.
A good price would be under 10.00 ea.

Clutton was there and his bird tried to bite me. I don't know if he has fuel because I remember hearing it's not allowed into the SeaGate Centre

Yes , I'll keep an eye out for OS "F" glow plugs, nib

Diesel fuel......I guess it's a 50/50 chance then; may have to switch to budgie bird power.

Got my camera, pass port, cash, "shopping bag", list.....

Might wear a bright yellow jacket with Hamilton Flying Tigers across the back.

Last year coming from Hamilton area, left at 6 am , got there about 10:30 am.
Right now it's trying to snow.

Yes, the Canadians are coming.

Well, we made it there and back.
Good drive, good weather, good friends.
Bill, it's a good thing I didn't stock up on your F* plugs?
And yes, we stopped at RCA (customs) coming back.

That full-size Lanzo Racer is the last model built by Chet Lanzo. He died before completion and Bucky Walter finished it up and covered it.

Notice the difference in dihedral from mine built from reduced Pond plans. A letter from Chet says the dihedral is only 14 inches at each tip and that's exactly what this one measures. Most Racers out there have way too much dihedral.

Thanx for the pix. I did not make it this year and they are appreciated.
A question about the Racer if I may. I have built a few sizes of Bombers but never a Racer. Is it basically a Bomber wing on a Bomber fuse less the pylon?

It's longer. I've never compared similar sized examples. But I suspect if you used the long center section of that particular Bomber version and added the tips of the short center section version, you'd get a wing close to the planform of the Racer.

I've lots of pictures of the models on display, but not many old timers.
I can add them here or put them elsewhere.

Lanzo Racer v.s. Bomber

I meant to mention that the fuse would be square as opposed to diamond on the Bomber. I did something like that with an Interceptor for use as an Aerial Photography (AP) platform. Made the fuse square and added dual LG. Its a <Square> <Interceptor>, i.e. SQUINT.
Pix attached if anyone is interested.
