What I like about this '1/2A' business is the sheer enthusiasm and enjoyment everyone gets for relatively little outlay in time and money.
Beautiful models for the fun of it - not as po-faced as other disiplines.

Hello everyone!
Here is a pic of my 34" Guillow's Stuka powered by a .049.
A bit unstable, but it sure goes!!
Had a rough landing recently, so I have to do some work on it, and strengthen the structure.
Anyways I have a 25" WS guillow's FW 190 on the table now, so I'll have some pics of that soon

P.S.- Sorry about the quality of the photo.

That looks like a useful project!

How about some details? -Is it freeflight or radio? What changes have you made, or intend to make to the kit?

I've not considered these models even though they are available in the UK.

Lokk forward to your replies

Tony.

It is R/C, elevator and rudder. The .049 does not have throttle control, so it runs like a CL model. I am going to reenforce the fuselage with planks to hold up a little better. This was my first RC conversion, and am still working out some bugs.
The .049 with a 6x4 prop provides more than enough power.
For electronics, I installed GWS pico servos. The dihedral on the wings needs to be increased for stability
I will keep everyone updated on the project!

Thanks for that - looks like a very promising machine once you've got it sorted.

A COX .049 is perfect for scale sound in a Stuka!

Glad you like my Saracen design. Your photo is the only one I've seen in the 41 years since it was published.

Here's a pic of my B52. It's really just a blown-up Saracen. Solid wing, and an OS10 in the tail. More details and more pics on my website www.peterangus.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk

Delighted to make your acquaintance!

That was my second one! The first one wore out a BabeBee motor. I still fancy the idea of a radio version, and I still have the notes I prepared for the conversion. It might make it yet.

As you are clearly 'of a certain age' I can say that I built your design after a traumatic period of flying a 1/2 size f/f version of Albedo as in Aeromodeller Annual 1961/2 page 55 - yours was a dream as much as the Albedo was a nightmare!

Peter,

I just checked out your website... Wow, those designs are incredible! I like the way you used a single engine in the P38 and the Lancaster. Elegantly simple.

BTW, a couple of the guys in our club are Lancashire lads.

Sorry my B52 pic didn't arive. I am an internet novice . I'll try again here. If it doesn't work this time, can someone suggest what I am doing wrong ? Should the pic show in the preview?
