Eddie P .... Thank you.

I like your avitar? (is that right?) I've seen that nose art before. Should have considered that livery.

I Have to Agree With Eddie P.

You have outdone yourself! Hope it flys as well as it looks. I am sure it will, given your construction methods.

If you want to do another similarly configured "twin" with aft nacelles, I have a particular fondness for the Embraer ERJ 145. Flew them into NYC on US Air. Love the pointy nose and large nacelles.

Very nice. My dad is a retired TWA Captain. They "affectionately" called the Seven-Twos "Miss Piggy".

P_J_Glor: Will look up the Embraer ERJ 145. I've also been considering one of the Falcons. Then again, a 727 for GWS EDF 75s might be interesting after I see how the EDF 50 size works.

Thanks for the "First Flight" confidence boost!

Daren: The 727 was the first commercial airliner I flew on. I can still remember looking out the window while the wing came apart on final approach (down-n-dirty) . And while she may have earned the name "Miss Piggy" by the pilots who flew her, I loved the feeling of being pushed back in my seat on takeoff. Just loved it. Your Dad had the better seat!

Thanks Daren.

I'm with you David.I have a vivid memory from when I was about 5, walking down the rear stairs (when you still could), looking up and seeing the big sun logo from National Airlines on the tail. I too loved the feeling of being pushed back in the seat...you don't get that on most of todays airliners. Not to mention the thunderous roar that you felt throughout your whole body!

Thought all of you that replied to this thread might like to know my EDF 50, Boeing 727-100 flew it's maiden flight tonight and flys pretty nice with a round intake on No. 2. Nothen like the silohouette of a 727, as the sun has just set, comin at you viewed at about a 45 degree angle. Although I would consider the left seat.

Well Zeke "zbrubaker" is hard at work on his 727 for GWS EDF 50s (search in electric "Park Flyers"). After his flys, and I understand he's close, you might see him offer a kit. Lots of members would kike to see him succeed. If life was just a 727, he'd have it flyen months ago.
My 727 will end up in Flying Models, hopefully later this year. Learjet Plans are available through Flying Models, March 2004 Issue.

Concord is nice, but sticking with GWS twins for now. David
