Absolutely stunning even by your standards, Monz! Totally gorgeous little model. When Alex Whittaker sees that at the Nats he's going to go wild I reckon.

Cheers Pete. Loving your Caudron too ;)

By the way, thanks for the tip on Rub n Buff on Dave's Tabloid build, I used that on the prop and got pretty close to a half decent representation of a polished aluminium prop.

Congratulation Monique!
It looks so clean, you could place it in a museum...
But I hope that you wont do that, since I want to see it in the air!

You have already a new project in mind?

Congratulations Monz!

Just saw you flying Little Stinker on your youtube channel. It looked realistic in flight, nice and stable and a smooth landing. The checkerboard and stripes paint job showed really well.
You begin flying with a full bag of luck and an empty bag for experience. The object is to fill the bag of experience before you empty the bag of luck.

Well done, Monz, on a terrific Indoor Scale Nats 4th place with this beauty today. I missed the crucial flight, so hope someone videoed it. Here are the Open Rubber results for those interested. (Congrats on still being Kit Scale champ too of course!)

Thanks Pete, appreciate it. I don't think anyone got a video of the Pitts flying though.

I'm busy uploading all I have.

Hi Monz,

I am busy looking at the videos you upload, so thanks...

Judging from the trimming flights, and much to my surprise, the Pitts seems a great flyer. I say suprise, because I never though it could fly like that in free flight. A pity about no flight video, but I was more than compensated by your Fokker flight.

While watching it I thought to myself: ok, all you have to do is built it at exactly the same weight, with a painted finish and super scale detail and you can sweep the competition for many years to come...Wishful thinking, really, just like wishing my rubber models would fly like it...

I do not know your plans about November, but Nijmegen is a great place to be at that period...

It would be a great shame if no one videoed it, given all the wonderful vids you took of nearly everyone else! (Tim maybe?)
Agree- get it to Nijmegen!
