Dumas 40" Bird Dog for IPS Power


Now that the RCHTA show is behind us, I'm happy to say officially, that the L-19 Bird Dog will be kitted by by Dumas, along with the 35" Waco ARE, and the Pilatus Porter which I plan to finish today and test fly this week. Also in the works for the series are 3 new designs, 2 monoplanes and a biplane. Keep your eyes open, I'll be running threads when they get underway.

Darned Dumas! Three more I'll have to add to my pile!

When should we expect to see them in stores?

This is great news Pat!

I emaile dumas a while back about the plan supplement for the Do 335. I saw the building thread a few months back, and I was wondering when the plan supplement will become available? I am itching to build that one.... Now If I could just find a BV-141 kit...

I have visited the DUMAS WEB Site and didn't see any up-coming model that even comes close to the Bird Dog!

However, I was pretty impressed with the DARE Web Site and it had several large and super light models that I am thinking of ordering!

Good luck with DARE kits. They require a lot of effort to build as they aren't plug and play kits. Meaning, there are a lot of sticks...

You mean they are not interlocking design?

Geesh, they are very light though?

I was looking at some 48 inch and 60 inch wing span wonders in there and they seem to be great flyers at 8 oz./sq-in wing loading?

interlocking designs are the way to go.

The Dare kits (at least Pat's designs) and Dumas kits are typical stick and former stuff. The Bird Dog is similar. Remember that Pat designs VERY light stuff and keeps to his FF roots. Dare does not include instructions, but, Dumas does.

Definitely not interlocking type stuff. If you want a taste of the type you can get any of the Dumas kits as they all seem to build the same way. Interlocking stuff is nice, but, they build a bit heavier.

I have seen a lot of Pat's planes fly and they are all very gentle fliers.

I may be a bit biased, but, I love the way they (Dumas and Dare) build

Will we have to build forms to laminate pieces for any of the structures,
or will the dumas kit be mostly lazer cut formers and stringers?
Are you saying the Dumas kits will not be lazer cut interlocking parts?
