|An RC model of the famous WW-I
RAAFSopwith Pup Replica, currently in the
Point Cook Museum, Australia. This was built
from a highly modified CD Scaledesigns kit. It is
powered by a Saito 62 Four stoke engine.
1/5th Scale Model
|Another composite with me and
the two bipes, "in front" of the Pup.
|The landing gear has a swing axle and shock
cord suspension, just like the real plane.

|Cockpit combing is done with artificial leather
from a cheap Marshall's purse.
The final instrument panel is installed here.
1/5th Scale Model
|This model is built from a VK kit (from Proctor).
The subject is a full scale replica of a Camel
brought to the USA after WW-I which was used
to explore the idea of ship-based aircraft. The
actual aircraft was flown off a platform on the
USS TEXAS battleship. The replica is on display
at the Pensacola Florida Naval Aircraft Museum.
The model is powered by a Saito 62 four stoke
engine and has a gyro on its rudder.
|This fine veneer is sold for use on violins
and cellos. The scale of the grain is
perfect for this application.
|The maiden flight
was a disaster
when the radio
I had arranged
for a really
expert flyer to
due the honors
but even he
couldn't save it!
|After over a year of work, it was time to celebrate :)
So I designed and made up this wine label.
|I let this wreck set on the bench for about
18 months. Then it seemed time to
address it again. The rebuild took about
six months but was very gratifying due to
the plane's success. A new
state-of-the-art Spektrum radio was
installed to fight interference, etc. This
radio has an auxiliary receiver and takes
TWO frequencies at once.
|WW-I models are terrible on takeoffs &
landings so I added this little GYRO for
the rudder servo. It is a big help and
can be turned off in flight.
