Let's build a plane - #2


The wind has been up so the Pitts Special is sitting in the garage waiting for some calm weather. I'm not complaining tho, this 70 deg weather is terrific!! So I've been sitting on this project and decided it was time to start it.
Here's a picture of the fuse......want to guess where we're going?? The foam is something that should be familiar to a lot of you.

well, thats a cute SE5A fuse

I have built SEVERAL foam SE%as, speed280 24" wing span out of WHITE low density foam. the low density is to keep it light. weight came in at 9 OZ!!!!! good luck!!

Looks like pink foam, maybe a tiger moth bipe, maybe a pietenpol air camper?? Could be a low wing plane too, warbird maybe?
I've been thinking of the pietenpol air camper myself, found the foam cutter you recommended too hoppy. I have a bunch of the blu-cor foam in the garage, need to lay some thing out and make some templates. Let us know what you are building hoppy.

DNA, , those wing tips are right off the drawings.....Maybe the pictures aren't doing it justice, or maybe this is a differnent version. I understand there were a number of designs built.


No, it isn't another pitts.....I'm having enough problems with the other one.....need more power!

It might resemble a ms in that it is a low wing, open cockpit plane. But where did that fuse come from????
