>don't even think about placing a hand on that Jet Ski for 4 weeks

Huge storm hit Toronto and surrounding areas on Friday whilst we were away; huge flooding, roads washed out, hundreds of basements, stores, malls etc. flooded. Police stripped a dealership of its Jet Skis and used them to rescue stranded drivers from their car roofs on the parkway. Presumably there's a sale on lightly used Jet Skis, now...

Dr Jeckyl & Mr Hyde's BONES.

Jeckyl & Hyde bones ready to cover same as the first one---black fuselage, double cover Esaki lite cross grain---fin, prop and rear of fuse. red Esaki, stab. and wing center section orange Esaki, with red tips.

First one has been such a good and reliable flyer l just had to have a spare--may give Open Rubber a nudge next year as well as the OZ Vintage again.

History Lesson;

Good long thread. Haven't done real FF in over 30 years. Loved it but just too many other toys to play with and didn't have to chase them.
I did have considerable success with OHLG, Class C FF, yet I could never get the hang of rubber power. My hat is forever tipped to those that do so.
If the picture comes in, it is a history thing as it is the launch for the winning fly-off in the US Air Force's World-Wide (AF personnel that is) Model Airplane Championships, near San Antonio, TX in summer of 1967.
The same San De Hogan won the Chicago Aeronuts AAA Midwestern Championships at Bong Fld. WI, USA, in Sep. 1968.
BTW this was me flying in Class C FF both events.

Thank you Mr. Gossie. You helped me remove the ol' head from the dark and dirty position.

San de Hogan was my second real free flight when a kid in school. Of course the first wes a Cleveland Playboy. BTW I have original kits of each in my stockpile.

However I don't have a kit of that STARDUSTER in the pic. It was powered with a K&b .40, series 64(?). Potent engine for that day and time.

Thanks for the help there.

Here's my P-30, doesn't look quite so good now after I blew a motor, I might get around to dragging it out and building a new fuselage for it.

I thought it might be a 'duster 900. I have a kit up in the shelving, somewhere; only bought it because I found it very cheaply at a RC 'swapshop' whilst looking for old plans. The Series 64 KB.40RV is still a good engine, light and powerful, for Classic Gas, etc.; I really oughta build an airplane for one of mine, again.

Well, here is my first attempt at stick building. It is a walnut scale Dumas Wildcat. While it is free flight, I set it up for a static display. It is silkspan covered(oh my god it was a nightmare for me) and painted. I "retracted" the wheels, and did a little weathering. I am donating the model to auction for the U.S.S. Wasp reunion which is this weekend. Funny enough, today is the day the Wasp was torpedoed and sank 63 years ago, and is the same day I finsihed building the model. It isn't the greatest because it was my first stick and tissue build but it gives a good overall effect. It is decorated in VF-71 squadron markings. Now off to build a display stand for it!

Hi Kiwi, Like your P30.
Rebuilt it yet?
Perhaps allow room for a motor tube
next time round?

Like the model, a nice idea. Hope it
goes well.
Don't think there can be that many still
firm enough to make a reunion. Sad!
