Just started my "Thru the Winter" Build thread featuring my recently acquired "Precedent Quarter Scale Stampe SV4B" kit.

Having reacquainted myself with the poor die cutting and a "locust swarm" of small parts to be custom fitted. (it's my second build of this kit) it's safe to say I won't be doing the maiden flight this year.

I added a few pics of my Sig 1/4 scale clipped wing cub here too.

This is the maiden flight of a Dollar Tree Foam Scratch built Stampe SV4B Scaled up from the 3 view on the plans of the Precedent Kit.
Had to work hard to slow her down!

My latest build is Balsa USA's Taube 90.

Here is my conversion of Eflite's 44" built up Stearman from electric to an OS 40 FS.
Starts out about halfway down the page.

A nice build thread of my 2016 Quaker. a recreation of my 1989 Quaker only painted like my 1988 Quaker.

Very short first thread of converting a GeeBee models Tigermoth to brushless.

Here's the maiden of my Sig 1/4 scale cub with a vid at the end. She's still flying well but with new bearings.

We upgraded the Cub to lipos and made more vids with an obvious power increase. Look at my avatar, Four years later.

Then came a front yard Demoiselle out of depron and basswood for the new spektrum micro gear.

Next up... A profile B-10 in depron with differential throttle instead of a rudder.
