That's a nice Chipmunk Mike. I've been contemplating a 10 cell Chipmunk for the past few weeks. I drew up some plans a few years ago in Cad for a 1/5th Chipmunk so I might just resize it for 10 cells and an Endoplasma. The cowling and canopy plugs are the hard part I'd have to make.

Is that 'munk a scratchbuilt?

Yes, Mike, that is a nice looking plane.

DBlum - glad I could help, just don't forget the pictures

The Chipmunk fus was built from 0.4mm ply with a bit of balsa to add ridigity. The cowlis made from a couple of pieces of ply infront of the motor and then a large piece that folds over the top. This removed for access to the motor and battery. It holds in place by a sliding tab at the back, a couple of small tabs at the front and finally a pess stud at the rear of the cowling. It sounds complicated, but is really simple to work.

The cockpit is again made from shett ply cut to shape and then formed.

Dave, what are you planning now? I'd love to see an IPS sized chipmunk to follow in your line of beautiful scale aircraft.

Martin,I want to do something with a geared 370 and ailerons.I keep looking for just the "right" plane and the chipmunk looks pretty good.Sorry about your switchback,there's nothing like having a bucket of giblets and not knowing exactly what happened.Any more tests on the 182?I'm pretty convinced the answer is to remove ALL the washout.Try it,whats the worst that could happen?

Dave, glad to see that you are moving up to a larger scale with the Chipmunk

I made some progress on your 182. I'm currently covering the fuselage, wing is done. I'm using Litespan on it, man I hate that stuff! This time I'm using Sig Stix-it instead of balsaloc and it seems to hold better. I made a few notes and redlines on the plans but nothing major.

Do you need any of the original full-size high resolution pictures from the photo shoot of the 182?

That should be a nice size for that design of aircraft! I haven't played with the 182 of late because I've been distracted by crashing my switchback Assuming a success with the chipmunk, will you be short kitting it?
