While we are waiting for the above, I was given an old Pony Electric model a while back, and considering i need some smaller/lighter stuff to fly on the Astro Turf, I thought I would have a go at this with what I have in the scrap bins.

I have called her "Scrapper". The only thing I will have to buy, is an ESC. face 20

D.D.

This is the original covering, I did try the heat gun but it was sagging like Nora Battys stockings again the next Day.

The wing in the New Scheme.........ailerons are hinged with the film, I did hinges underneath with spare silver Oratex.

My Speedo arrived YAY !!

ESC) for those that think I have ordered some swimming pants.

The servos, Hobby king 9 g jobbies, same as the wing, are in the fuz and the fuz is covered.

I only intend to fly her in front of my face on the field at work so no heavy duty stuff needed. Total Spend £17.00.

Another plane out of Dibley Towers, that will own the skies above the West Midlands, Well..............,until it crashes into a drone from Amazon, bearing gifts from afar.

A bit of fun......................but do you think I will be able to see her in front of the trees. ????

I found a rather loverly motor mount under the cowl, I just had to open the hole at the front of the cowl, to get the prop driver through.

Nice little interlude whilst waiting for the weather to brighten so I can go and maiden the 120.

I need to order one of Mr Smeeds creations next I think, I'm getting bored again.

I did some testing of my bitsa power setup today, here are the results.

The model weighs in at 1240 g, (2.5 Lbs) all up inc lipo. I should be able to tootle round on half throttle.

ESC is a hobbywing 50A. so 20% margin observed.

Also...........my decals from Pyramid came today..............Just the Job......smile d

I like those pilots, I could use one for the Li'L Cub I'm building now. Beautiful looking plane Dwain. I think I'm going to use some of your technics on my build.

I’ve got twins in my DualAce. It’s a twin you know.

One of them said he was growing a beard and changing his shirt.

If they had Bowler hats they could pass as the Thompson Twins.

I dug the Plan out for the L'il cub today and had a look.

You must be right regarding your DualAce, Cymaz...

But this one is a Cessna 120... not a Skymaster... devil

Cheers

I once got talking to a couple of blokes in a bar. It turned out that they were identical twins but I didn't recognise them as such because one wore a beard and the other was clean shaven! Lol as young people say! laugh

The Boys have settled in, and with a change of clothes and some facial hair nurturing, seem better suited to flying than cloning.

Hi Dwain, where exactly were you able to buy your pilots? I've been searching some of the Chinese shops and can't seem to spot them. Nice paint job by the way.

I got them from Hobby King Steven. They are 1/6th scale

I had ordered some from probuild on back order, called Miracle 1/6th pilots, but they cancelled the order on me.

The ones from Hobby King are not quite the same but are a close enough alternative.

Here's a miracle one in the Moth.

He changed his shirt too.......................and got taller. LOL
