Question: Have you ever built more than one of the same model?


Just wondering what parkflyers Ezoners are building more than one of and why?

So far the only airplane I have duplicated has been the Tiger Moth. It was my first parkie and it flew so well I basically just wore it out and I needed a new one.

I'll probably start on a new Mountain Models Duskstik before long. My origional ended up in the top of a tree for three weeks and kinda took a beating. It was an excellent flyer and I miss having one to fly now.

I figure if modelers are building more than one of a kind they certainly must be favorites.

I've seriously considered buying a second switchback to use for combat ...But I don't have the time or money at the moment, so that'll have to wait!

Does building for other people count?

For myself, I've built 2 switchbacks and Christine has built one of her own. I've built one hangover and Christine's got one she's building too. I suppose those count as we'll both fly them. I've built two Nemesi's. I guess that's it.

I have built two of the Wattage Sukhoi and Tangent. The Sukhoi was replaced due to fuse warp from sitting in a hot car. the Tangent because of dumb thumbs.

I have two Hangover's. I built one and bought the other from a buddy. That plane is worth having two of!

I have a flair for the Pilatus Pc-6 (License built by Fairchild as the AU-23A Peacemaker. I built 3 of them myself and have now gotten myself a EPP variant. Its a easy plane to build, thanks to having almost no curves and beeing designed to be a STOL plane its a great model. Finaly its a swiss built and designed plane.
