Tony,
I see a lot of the same things... not many building these days. I haven't either... this past year life has been a bit unkind.
I will be getting back to building again sometime in the spring.

I do follow your threads and subscribe to your channel on YouTube... but I am only one!

You have just taken me back over 25 years and put a smile on my face.

I too have been lucky enough to have a flight in a Tiger Moth. Beautiful plane and was also very lucky to have been trusted with the controls.

Although that was many years before we could record things on phones (or anything small enough to take into an open cockpit).

I now have the most recent files from Lockey.

I reworked the whole layout and it's still 2 1/2 sheets of MPF.

I decided to do JUST the Swept version for now.

It's up on my web pages @

Thats a good idea Bob, I do think its a nicer flier

Craig, we sure are the lucky ones to have flown in such a fantastic little airplane .. the one I went up in was built in 1941 .. which makes it 3 years older than me and I think the pilot said it was purchased by the Royal Aero Club of W.A in the 1960s

I have added Lockeys' latest Viking EDF version to my offerings.

So now you can either ... or BOTH the Swept or the EDF !

Took the liberty of starting a new thread over in the Foamy EDF forum.

Something simple just to let them know there is another place to look for designs.

Good idea Bob, maybe I should start a new thread for the new EDF model ? this one has a slightly larger wing and a "real airfoil" rather than the KFm airfoil on the pusher prop versions .. AND I am only doing this one a a swept wing version ..

It will still be a slide on grass or water plane and designed for a 70mm EDF although I guess a decent 64mm EFD would power it too, it should come in around 750 grams (without the battery) .. maybe a bit lighter with a 64mm EDF

Swept wing prop version was 990mm and this one is 1090mm and a slightly larger horizontal stab

You could just add to the thread I started since I have no possessive leanings for it.
