Peter Rake Fly-in

When I was preparing the Baboon to become a 'ceiling queen', I figured a group photo of Peter's designs I had built might be appropriate - if only to assure Peter that they are all still intact in spite of my minimal flying skills

Many have had their motors, props, RX and servos removed for use elsewhere but only the Hanriot would require a little bit of patching for any of them to fly again. (The Hanriot was another example of my stupidity - if you are flying more than 1 model in a day, TURN OFF the non-flying one before starting the next esp. when it's in the back of the wagon ). Nuff said.......

Would you believe, as soon as they were set out on the winter 'lawn', it started to rain so two poor photos and all back indoors!

Every model was from a Manzano Laser short kit. - Thanks Charlie.

A great rogues gallery Pat...best 6 weeks-worth of modelling I've ever seen That Baboon still looks a big 'un doesn't it.

Look forward to the line-up getting much longer.

Wow, very nice.
I wish I had some of them, ready to fly or not. Gotta keep 'em flying.
Hmm, I wonder how many flying models you have in addition to these.

Pat,

That's a super tribute to the man who's bought scale modelling to quite a few of us!
