Can't wait. How do you plan on doing the engine pods and tail booms? Just curious as I realize you may not be there yet. You should really take some of these plans to kit form, you would make lots of people happy

Let us know how it comes together.

Well, I'l do them as I did on my 262 most likely.1/4 sq balsa stringers top and sides, sheeted with 1/16. Has held up GREAT on the 262,and other ships...

almost can't wait to get the plans done!

Who wants the first plan free so they can build it and test it for me? I have no time right now, as I'm trying to get my 42" 51 done

It'll be a simple build, trust me

Need you even ask? I'm in, and since I am now familiar with your construction, could have it up pretty quickly. Let me know, I have told some folks about it here and they are waiting with wetted chins.

Where can I get hold of the Mosquito plans you listed - is it for 2 x speed400?

Could I have plans for your P51?

Tonto: PLans for Mossie are $15.00 US emailed to you full size, you print out, or $22.00 US printed,and shipped to you(might be a tad more, seeing where your from.)It has 44" span, and yes, its for twin 400 motors, direct drive.

Plans are underway for the p-51, but it will be a while.I have a few others in the fire right now.Need to get the Black Widow plans done, and finish the protoype 51.If it flies 1/2 as well as my jug, then it'll be a keeper.Contact me and I'll drop ypou a pic of the 51 so far.

Mark, what Jug?!?!?! You been holding out on me? Keep at those plans, when they are done I am going to take a set of them and the mosquito (bulk order!). I am hooked on plans building. Couldnt have asked for a better plane to begin with.

Keep at it Mark, I cant wait to see what you come up with.

Tonto: Just email me at the addy in the by my name.

SN: Really happy you are digging the ST.Your are gonna LOVE flying the thing more than building it!.Yake your time on the wingtips.....they need to be there for the right flight.

The jug...I'll try to send you a pic this week...

Cant wait to see the Jug. Harder or easier to build than the ST?

I worked the wingtips a lot lastnight, and have them dead on in shape and size. They look nice, though I did find them harder to do than my A-10 tips (extended section was tougher for me for some reason )

Should be nearly flyable by Sunday.
