Yes, it is rather in my style and maybe one day. I have looked at 3 views in the past. It is in my "One Day"list.

At the moment I am building an RWD5. Then I have a couple more ideas.

Peter I can see why the RWD-5. It is a beauty also! Cannot wait to see it!

I wanted a different build. Basically a Super 60 with no struts. Eventually found it in my collection of 3-views.

p-2 2.jpgI have now found my next scale sbuject. An aircraft that is a perfect subject for modelling and yet I can't find a single plan for an R/C model of it.

Now how does that grab you all.

Note that it can be done in German colours, Japanese colours and Intalian colours because it has been used in so many films.

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade for one.

How about a Grumman Gulf-hawk, a podgy little biplane with a big radial engine and retracts.

NO, This is the one. At least the retracts will be easy, already bought them.

What size would that be Peter? And will that have provision for an IC engine ?

61" span. 48 to 52 four stroke. I may increase the wing chord by 1" to bring it up to 600 sq in area. I may not as it is pretty close to Super Marauder,

Various Yak 18s have been done. I did a control line one about 40 years ago

NO onehas done a PIlatus P-2 as far as I can see.

If the plan is published in RCME I'll just have to build it. Great subject to go with my Swiss Air Force Bf109, I'll do the electric conversion.

It has already been promised to RCM&E subject to successful completion. And yes, you can do the electric conversion as I don't think it would fly ona Speed 600wink

Why does everyone want to build warbirds?? dont know

What next ?. How about something that probably hasn't been done before, one of the 'fantasy' plane, from drawings, cartoons, films etc.

There seems to be a continuing 'looking back at what has been done before full size'. Where's the imagination ?

Or do models have to be based on an existing full size, 'a scale model' ? It existed as a full size, so someone copies it as a model, then more people copy the model. It's called progress ?.

Many wont like this, but at least multirotors was something 'new', quite a few fixed wing VTOL models have developed from the MR concept.

Just a comment, no need to flame as most of my models are based on existing full size.

But the question was, What next ?.

The Pilatus P-2 is not a warbird. IT is a trainer.

Personally I chose it because it is an ideal shape for a model, I like the lines and shape and the huge variety of colour schemes.

IT has a slab sided fuselage, a chin cowl to hide an engine, a nice simple cockpit canopy which is easy to make and doesn,t need complicated mouldings.

The Pilatus, as I have said, has not been done before.

However I do have a future project that has not ever been done before as far as I know and I am pretty sure that the last two posters will never have the nerve to build it.
