Come on, O.G., put one of those things in your most prized Sprint. We live once. :D

Chas, that one is beautiful! I can certainly see using that paint scheme on one in the future.

Thanks, Lee!
This was a scratch build, completed just before they released the kit. :rolleyes: Still might buy the kit to have one in reserve.

Thanks! These are basswood. I'd actually cloned the standard Farside first, with balsa fins. The balsa was so thin I had to fight to keep it from warping. Flew it once, C6-0, B6-0, B6-6. The C6-0...

Also also, I flew my Star Orbiter again. On an F15-6, this one seems to float forever. Bought some Es for next time. Finally landed just in front of a very rare Estes Porta-Pot Shot upscale.

Also flown, my Maxi-Icarus clone on an E9-4. Long-burning nice flight.

Still looking for a Lego Batman mini-fig for the payload section. Apparently, Lego mini-figs are a huge thing. Who knew?

Thanks! It sure did, and, unlike my affinity for streamered Comanche-3s, the chute brings this one down perfectly. No damage.

I'd actually started the day with the 12th flight of my perpetually...

Come see the Farside (-X) of SEARS

At the November 3rd SEARS launch, conditions finally allowed for the first launch of my Farside-X clone. Perfect skies and minimal winds meant that, after lugging it to the club several times, it...

Very nice looking, Glen.

Per the spec sheet, I wonder how well that would fly on one of GH's fav B14-5s. :rolleyes:

And voy lay! The finished fin (one of four.)

While far from perfect, I am very happy with my first attempt at this technique. This now becomes the second best building tip I have learned from Jeffy.

Thanks! I asked because I wasn't sure if glue would cause the paper to bubble or wrinkle, and whether it might be better to use a spray. Titebond worked fine.

See below for fins attached. While...

Beautiful work.

I love Testor's Competition Orange. Use it on every Comanche III I build. I then dull coat it as per instructions. Takes some of the glaring orange off.
