Help!

Please help identify these two airplanes


I don't know what these are. I need to buy a cowling for each of them and a canopy for the the yellow white and blue one so I can restore them back to flying condition.

Wingspans are about 36 inches.

The red white yellow and blue airplane has an OS Max 35 engine on it.

The light blue yellow and white airplane has a os la 25 on it.

Both engines look way overpowered for these two airplanes. But since I don't know what they are, I really can't say for sure.

Thanks for taking a look and helping identify these two airplanes.

These are those hovering models that block the runway for sport flyers, right?
Edge 540 and a Giles 202 methinks. They all do look alike...got to have the power to hold them on the prop.
I bet they're tail heavy too. Sorry I can't be more help.

Based on the engine size, either that, or pure, rip the wings off speed! Either way, not fun for us sport flyers!

The second one does look like a Giles 202 but I cannot find a Hirobo model.

First is a Global Hobby Tequila Sunrise. It calls for a .25 so it's definitely over powered.

Now I need a canopy for it too! I thought the one on it looked rigged.

Thanks scale_only.

Only a 37" plane. Cowl round. It's only stand-off scale.

Another pic of one with cowl:

ww2collector is that your plane?

I need a couple of good pics so I can make a cowl for mine.

Looks like the cowl might hold an OS FS 20 four stroke.

I may just paint my canopy.

Ha!
That pic is MY plane, when Mike owned it.
I got it from Mike a couple of years ago.
I'm just getting around to restoring it.
