Re: Howard Littman Model Aircraft Dewoitine D.520

I must apologize to all my followers and customers. Due to an unexpected family medical emergency the work on bringing my 1:16 scale models into kit will be delayed until the new year. They will be in kit next year.

Keep 'Em Flying!

Re: West Wings 24" Spitfire Mk.22

The trick with a Spitfire, or any rubber powered model with pointed wing tips, is getting the transition from powered flight to glide right. It's easy to trim it to glide and easy to trim it for powered flight, however, the transition can result in a tip stall with a resulting spin. This one, with s...

Re: Howard Littman Model Aircraft Dewoitine D.520

The Dewoitine D.520 is still in process despite some unanticipated delays. I got the second prototype ready for some finishing and sprayed a coat of white floral spray on it as a primer. Paint_Day_1.jpg Paint_Day_3.jpg Primer is meant to show all flaws before final finishing and did it ever! The dic...

Re: Indoor Flying with the O.F.F.C.

I got up at 6:30 this morning intending to go to the OFFC meeting and flying session (outdoors and with masks) but my wife had some gardening to do and she needed assistance. I didn't get to Stonehurst until 10 which was a bit iffy since the high temperature was predicted to be 107 (F of course). Wh...

Re: 20mm EDF DH108 Swallow build and flight

I understand your situation. I was nearsighted and wore glasses most of my life. When I had cataract surgery I chose distance lenses. My wife thought that this was a mistake since I now need two pairs of reading glasses one for reading and one for the computer. She doesn't fly models. ;)

Re: 20mm EDF DH108 Swallow build and flight

Very impressive for a model that is 50 grams with only a 15.5 inch wing span! I know that the video does not give the same resolution as the Mk 1 eyeball but do you have any trouble keeping it in sight?

Re: Howard Littman Model Aircraft Dewoitine D.520

I gave on the plastic nose blocks and went to wooden ones. The P-6E has a similar one with peg alignment and with wheel pants done the same way. The hole you seen for the thrust button in the front view is not the final version. The kits will come with Gizmo Geezer adjustable thrust buttons. I have ...

My Wright Amount of Wrong kit has had a slight redesign. It can now be built as either a biplane or a susquiplane. Both are FAC legal.
