Guillows Series 200 - Nieuport II by biplane guy
biplane guyFinished LeRhone 80 HP
biplane guyWouldn't run without the spark plugs.
poppySuper details!! Will look great on the Nieuport!
Skyediamonds1985I concur with Poppy. Fantastic detailing done to your LeRhone. And you say it rotates? Wow.
biplane guyThe crankcase is a flat-end 3/4" pvc pipe cap. In the sideview of the fuselage showing the aileron pushrods you can see the silver 3/4" pvc plug which will slide into the back of the cap. There's a bolt epoxied through the plug which passes through the hardwood block behind the front former and becomes the shaft which supports the motor assembly and allows it to rotate. A cotter pin keeps it in place.

Guillows Series 500 - Nakijima Rufe by mlriley540
mlriley540Did some more test flights tonight. A strong motor just seems to get the plane in trouble quicker, I've gone back to a weak motor in hopes of avoiding climbs that lead to stalls. It was too windy tonight to really say how it is flying. I'll have to wait for calmer weather. I had damaged it twice earlier in the week but it is fully repaired and looks good still.

Easy Built FF-55 Supermarine Spitfire Mk 1a by MMitch2782
MMitch2782Left side
Skyediamonds1985Very smooth cuts in the green camouflage paper. No jagged edges. Looks like it was masked and painted. Very good.
MMitch2782 Thanks, the stock green tissue is opaque and goes well with the translucent light blue. Just a sharp pair of scissors. EB gave me light blue. Light gray would be more scale.
