Vintage & Old-Timer Plans built gallery

Its been more then a 2,000,000 views, has any one built from plans in this thread?

I have actually built three models from plans here, a 1950 Smeed Tomboy, a 1941 Cloud Craft Mercury, and a Reg Truman Top Hat.

I am now starting on a 70" Quaker Flash.

Has any one else built from plans in this thread?

Show your plane built from the Vintage & Old-Timer Plans thread.

I currently have four of the models in the Vintage & Old-Timer Plans thread

The Laumer Push-Up was built back in 2007 - power is a Park 250. Covering is Microlite

The Lil R.O.G. was build I think in 2009 - power is a Mighty Midget Gold Series 1-cell. Covering is Microlite. Fuselage was widened to make RC installation easier. Rudder profile was changed to achieve coupling

The Sorta Boy is based on the Tom Boy but has a longer nose to help with the CG and window changes. Built in the fall of 2010. Both the wing span and the horizontal tail are of the larger sizes (44-1/2" wing, 22-9/16" stabilizer) and are structurally modified. Power is 400XT. Covering is silk. Paint is dope.

The Rumpler C5 was built in the winter of 2010. Many changes to the fuselage construction for I found it almost impossible for me to fabricate the fuselage out of 1/32" balsa as shown on Walt's drawing. I also changed the fuselage top profile to allow for smooth transitions. The vertical fin was increased in size by about 20%. The blue covering is Coverlite but I'll never use it again! The fuselage covering is silk. Paint is dope. Power is a Park 300.

I don't think that I have ever followed any drawing exactly but that's how I learn. And this is for the purists

Here's some of mine. I didn't post the plan of the Roaring 20 because I actually made that plane from a picture and memory.

The yellow Trainer master was also from memory, when I finally got a copy of the plan I was withing 1/16 inch in all dimensions.

Sparky is enlarged 10 per cent while the Taurus is shrunk 30 percent.

The Sidewinder delta is stock, just electric powered now.

Your big scale EDF model's coming on quite well. It's always the little bits that take the time though....

Spot on, Scott. That Eros has "vintage" written all over it and the landing gear really adds to the look. Nice photo, Mark.

Soft landings,
