Is that a scale model of a B26 Marauder. My fave US bomber from WW2. ??

Megowcoupe, nice looking B-26? Whatever, it looks great and I'm sure it was a proud moment.

Balsa Flies Better!
Thanks all- and yes it's a B-26 and I think it's actually pretty close to an early B-26B with the shorter wings. A pretty heavily modified Dumas kit.

Spring is in the air. So I finished a Guillows quick build Cessna I had started about a year ago while stuck out of town for work for a week. I built the tail feathers in my hotel room at night and stuck it back in the box. I got it out this week and finished it. Here's a pic--came out 33 grams prior to trimming--hope to maiden it this weekend. Wouldn't it be nice to have a Guillows kit that could fly? Next up is a Lacey M-10 with help from Bill Warner's book on the FA Moth which has a chapter dedicated to this kit as an intro to scale FF modeling. My moth built from this book is still my only FF success so hopefully the Lacey will turn out ok.

Nice job Kevin, I bet it will be a flyer for you. I was pleasantly surprised at a 1/2 wake I just finished up.

Is the LG plug-in or did you decide to leave it off?

Nice build Kev. See you got yourself a camera at last.
Sure it isn't a 1/4 wake?
Good flying,
Flight.

Nice model. Kev.
I wouldn't have thought to put those two colors together but they look great. Is that EasyBuilt tissue??

I like the black outline around the wing and tail.

The landing gear didn't work out very well so I removed it. It is a 1/2 size Wakefield and built with easy light tissue.

A realy nice looking model Kev. Well finished too. Except for competitions
which required r.o.g. we used to leave the landing gear off provided the
c.g. could work out right. In your case it looks as though you can move
the wing so that shouldn't be a problem. Bet it flies well.
Only kidding about the size. If you halve the measurements you don't get
half the area!

Cheers,
Flight

Or half the weight, sadly

Nice work Kev.

Thanks for the compliments guys. I haven't been working as much as I have been on free flight. I've been busy with starting my small business and there has been a lot of paperwork and business plan writing among other red tape. I *have* been building an Easy Built Westland Whirlwind. It has two propellers with a 30" wing-span. I've made a few changes including longer nacelles, more wing dihedral and a shorter tail by one bay...thinking that would ease the tail weight.
