Cessna 170

Post by Hammer_other » 08 Sep 2004, 03:08

I'm currently working on a balsa wood model of a Cessna 170. Actually flies, can even take a gas engine! Wingspan: 24"

Will post pics as I progress with it.

Good for you mate. Hope you get it finished. I have a 1/36th scale model of the NAW A10A-2. There was only ever one built, to investigate the potential of a Night / Adverse weather modification to the A-10 fleet. It now stands like a quiet giant rotting away at Edwards AFB somewhere in the desert. :(
I have never managed to get started with the model, and am reluctant too, because we are always moving at the moment, and it would simply end-up broken. And that would be pointless, eh?

Model planes

I don't think you have met him, but a WOF member "Hades" is working on a P-47 model plane. Maybe he will see this thread and post some of his pics here. He has done a LOT of work on it so far. I aplaud him for all his hard work, and the time and patience it must take to complete such a task.

My only problem with getting into something that takes so long, costs so much, would be crashing. My first crash would be the end of my scale modeling career.

I talk to him 2 to 3 times a week on ICQ, sometimes less. I'll tell him to stop by here next time I see him. He has a job now, so he has less time to play.

A job - can't say I'm too familiar with that concept right now. Not that I care to be either, it'll be a part of my life again soon enough. But I understand his work commitments taking him away from his little passions in life, just the way it is I guess, eh?

I know about Hades, you told me yourself. When I first hit him up on ICQ, he gave the web address with his pics. I like what he's done so far with his Thunderbolt. Are we permitted to call it a Hog Mk. 1? :wink:

Hi

Post by Hades » 14 Sep 2004, 11:56

Whats up lads long time no see here is some of the pics of the thunderbolt
the pictures is old but since i dont own a web cam my self theyre the only one i got on the jug

Thanks for the kind words about the jug guys i apriciate it.
ANd hammer goodluck with that Cessna.

i have been building the plane since mars/april but i have had pauses with the building time to time cause the lack of founds (i was unemployed) now i got a job and im back on track :)

THe jug is scale 1/7 - 1/8, if i remeber correctly its 63" wingspan,
its gonna be fitted with a 4 stroke 20cc engine i bought a used one from a friend cheap but im not really happy with that engine so i gonna buy a new one cause with the jug that causes alot of drag and its a heavy plane i dont want a deadstick cause then it will be hard to reach the runway with out stalling and loosing the bird,

im installing pnumatic retracks and flaps on this machine i already bought a cockpit for it also.

if you lads have any questions i will be more then happy to answer them :)
