Hi ARUP
Lovely bit of glider, but the Super Cruiser kit bash is a beauty. I had a Sig 1/6th clipwing, a lovely model for the kit's age. Would love to see more on that one for sure.

Regards

Dereck

Chad - I like the looks of your Yak-54. Electric powered?

Thanks enahs. I never got far enough with the Yak-54 to decide on a power system although electric was being considered as well as .25 size nitro. I checked the CAD file and the span is 42 inches by the way. I got it to the point you see in the pictures and then it sat around for a long time. I passed it along to another modeler who promised to get it finished and provide me with a flight report but I never heard from said modeler again. (Same story with the little Yak-11 in the first picture as well.) I still think it would make a great flyer and I would consider cleaning up the drawings and making them available, along with a cowl and canopy and maybe even a laser cut short kit, but not until a prototype has been successfully flown. The airplane was really only inspired by the Yak-54 and many liberties were taken. But it looks neat and is very simple to build. Geez, I may be talking myself into building another one!

I like the looks of it. I just started working on a similar sized Cap 232 in AutoCAD and I'd love to have a prototype at some point this year. If you ever make the plans available, I'm always down for a nice aerobatic plane.

The swoopy Connie fuse is nice!
Kimber's 1953 pic is, like, way cool!
Chad needs to change his handle to 'Yakker' or 'Yakman' or sump'n! He sure has a lot of 'em!

Keep firebugs away from these bones! Especially if they like to use Butane!
