We'll see this Saturday if the weather is good. The structure isn't to fragile, the cruthc wat built with 1/6"x3/16" and all the formers were 1/16" sheet. It's covered in Esaki tissue then 2 coats of thinned dope. I coverd in the brick but I'm thinking I may havve to cut away a section of covering and add an access hatch. The battery will just velcro under the nose as far forward as I can get it. Il'l try and get video if I can fly it this weekend. It was a fun build.
Steve,
Naw, 5/8 is plenty. An inch wouldn't have preserved the look of it like you did. We have a cheap copy shop here and I think I have it at about 3-4 sizes. I might have to think about putting in a brick like yours.

While certainly not exactly what I was looking for yours is a valid/valuable download nonetheless. Thank you very much, that might make an interesting little free-flight rubber project while I seek more information.

Still looking for scale/semi-scale/sport-scale plan(s) for the Curtiss pusher(s).

I guess while I'm tilting at windmills, me and my penchant for the somewhat unusual/obscure, does anyone have (or have you seen) plans, etc., for a Boeing 40?

Thought I'd ask.

Thanks in advance for any help,

Scott

Not as good as I had hoped for but better than expected.

This one is a solid model for display. I guess if you put enough power on it you could fly it.

Updated the Aviatik-Berg D-1 Model Builder plans with a covering Color scheme on the plan as an option.Nothing else. I think the plan is enhanced. The original is still there also.

Looks like Ben Buckle Kits sells Matador kits and plans. I don't know about its copyright situation but I haven't seen a high quality download for it either. There's a couple of small plan images in this thread. Page 20, I think.

The attachment is a semi scale Spitfire stunter, not a rubber model
