Help!
Gee Whiz Bostonian Racer By B Matthews

Bruce Matthews, I found your Gee Whiz Bostonian Racer plans and printed them. I want to build it - it does have class. I am having trouble picturing in my mind the building order of the fuselage. In other words - what do I do first and then what comes after that and so on? Also, what is your intended wing span? I had no idea you had designed model airplanes, good job! kevin

Boy, it's been a while since I wrote that article for SFA. And the model was about 4 or 5 years old when the pics for the write up were taken. It sure shows in the faded tissue.

During some later attempts to resolve the trimming issues I managed to snap the wings in two. One day when I get around to repairing it I'll be adding that extra dihedral that I suggested. But there's a few other things to do first....
