Those are all beautiful old timers posted! One of my favorites is the Flying Quaker (84" wingspan). Can't get that big grin off of my face everytime I fly it

Beauty is always in the eye of the beholder but Ben Shereshaw's designs usually appeal to me with his Commodore being at the top of the list with the Cloud Cruiser a close second.

Miss Tiny. Soon as I find some pics I'll put them up.

The Mercury is my favourite from Ben Shereshaw.

Condor, is that an Arrowbile in the background behind your cabin model?

Thunder Tiger Scooter "EP"

My Thunder Tiger Scooter......I converted it from Glow-to-Electric and it is a totally different model all together!

With the Himax HA2025-4200 in the GWS EPS-300C gearbox (5.33:1 ratio) and swinging the APC "Slow Flyer" 10 X 7 using Thunder Power 2nd generation 2100mAH, 3S Li-POLYs, it zooms like a home sick dove!

If interested.....please visit my thread at:
http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=420500

However, here's some teaser pictures to let you wet at the mouth

Oh, I almost forgot....she spans 57 inches of wing span!!!
