The header subtitle says 63 inch wingspan but the plan says 72 inch. Hmmmm .... Do I suspect the plan has been resized?

Lovely looking build 'though. I like the jig for holding the fuselage sides together. Might have a go at making something similar.

What with this thread and the Tinker one, it's good to see so many Boddo designs being built once more. You only have to look at a Boddo plan to see the all too familiar construction methods. Almost all DB models used the same build methods, and were all the better for it.

I always had a soft spot for the Barnstormer as it was one of the first r/c models I saw being flown. Nice......

Ah, a Vertigo Jeff.

One of the first low wing models I flew. Merco .61 on the one I tried. Seemed like a rocket ship to me at the time, but I was in my early stages then......

Sounds like a good time to start Jeff, I may have the decorating finished by then (as well as the quadcopter and super 60 build!!). I think we are all guilty of altering construction for one reason or another.

Hey that's a very nice clean build. Great to see some good old 'traditional' building being done. Make me want to get down my 'Balsa USA Nieuport 28' kit off the top of my wardrobe and start a winter build project. The kit's been sat up there for years ... and years ......... and ............. yes, years LOL laugh
