I absolutely love the plastic dog figure- do you know anymore about where another plastic dog figure would be available? Stuff like the profile monkey and dog really add a lot of character and smile factor to these models.
best wishes, john s.
I actually found the vinyl plastic dog figure at Michaels Craft Center something called Dress Me Vinyl in the toy crafts.

Glad to help..... looks like KC (Pappy) will pilot the maiden..... jumped around a bit today, but getting closer to finishing up. I'll finish up the control surfaces and power system tomorrow.

Oh - took the scarf for flight ops as a given, for one with such taste

Nothing quite like the pilot's scarf flapping on the back deck on low, slow, almost power-off amble-by maneuvres.

Well it depends on the tools, using the right temp and of course the covering material.

Thanks for the compliments, as I said before I really do love to build planes.

Got a little further today actually to page 52! Finished the ELE and RUD servos and controls and installed the Hacker A30-16M v2.

Trimmed out a few areas with paint as well as hinged the battery compartment.

In view of the present argument re. inflatable wheels for Lazy Bees, etc - as in, the beggars cost a fortune and are they all they're cracked up to be - what wheels did you use on this cutey, please?

Take it the yellow paint on the outer side of the wheels is yours?

You should do well with that Hacker. They are seriously good motors.

You'll soon have to stop diddling and go flying

I went with a proven design.... as SA recommended; the Davebrown Big Lite Wheels 4.00 in. - Threaded Foam #DAV5740. I was going to get some of the inflatable wheels for a project or two.....

I know I'm diddling around and excuses only satisfy those who make them. I haven't even been able to fly the SKYBUGGY 100 yet, but in my defense..... my wife has been really sick which is why I have been building and staying close to home.... Then just when I get the chance..... it's either raining or too windy.

She doesn't fly however; we're learning to sail and she has 2 sailboats. The park, pond and trails are great medicine and just need the blue skies and warm weather to stay!!!!!

Finishing up the wing tonight.

Thanks..... I'm really glad I met this company at the WRAM show in NY because the laser kits are fantastic and build like legos.... Besides they stock all the extras to complete a build. Quality stuff and all tested as well as documented......

All the best to you and your wife. Trying times indeed.

Sailboats - RC or the slightly bigger ones? I come from a nautical family, my kid brother lives mostly on a 40 foot catamaran and does ship parking for a living now. Have never had an urge to sail for full size - am allergic to wobbly water for starters - but if I ever get to live near a lake long-term, a RC sailboat would be real good fun.

Thanks -

Have to take one day at a time. When we knew we were moving here we decided to add a few RC sailboats. We both grew up on the ocean plus she's a NYC girl and always loved the sailboats at Central Park.
