Image Comments LASTWOODSMAN [ edit ] 18-Nov-16 15:08 Me and my bird dog "Trapper". I'm 60 and he is 6 years old.I was born in 1956 and buuilt and flew control line balsa models when I was a kid with cox .049 and .020 engines, smashing them up, building them again, fllying them, smashing them up over and over - we had great fun when we were kis. I sstopped at 15 and then at 45 years old in 2001 I built a guillows Fokker triplane. Then 15 more years later in 2013 - three years ago I got back into the hobby thanks to all of you most inspiriing guys on Virtual Aerodrome. To dat I have 20 models on the wall. Special thanks to James Good for the website, masterbuilder David Ducket, Poppy, John Oshust and all the rest of you great builders and historical researchers. Thank you for all your tips and builds. When I need my relaxation therapy I just sit back and watch your builds. rayl 18-Nov-16 19:29 A belated welcome to the VA group! We DO have a great bunch of folks here. Looks like a rouges' gallery of great thinkers on your workshop wall, for inspiration I presume:-), LASTWOODSMAN [ edit | delete ] 18-Nov-16 21:28 Thanks for the welcome rayl. Those head bust pics on my apartment wall are 31 of the greatest classical music composers of all time, and I play pieces from each one of them on my piano accordion. David Duckett 19-Nov-16 07:48 Thanks for the nod. Welcome. Don C 19-Nov-16 11:00 Welcome and nice covering job on the Spad. Good looking pooch too. LASTWOODSMAN [ edit | delete ] 19-Nov-16 17:13 I forgot the most important point about the 3 color camo scheme - when you trace the outline of the wings, trace in the rib widths also and make your squiggly line separations of the different color tissue panel overlaps, to be wavering over the rib (or fuselage former for that matter) back and forth, in order to better support the tissue parts sticking out in mid air away from the rib tops - the tissue won't sag as much when you brush on that 1/8" overlap with 50-50 glue water mix. LASTWOODSMAN [ edit | delete ] 20-Nov-16 21:33 Thanks for the welcome DonC and Bill Parker for making me feel right at home! poppy 21-Nov-16 15:17 Welcome to a great site. Hope you enjoy it and look forward to some of your builds.

No Roundel decals because it would cover up my first attempt at 1/16" overlapping of coloured tissue. Prop is a bit oversized but better than undersized. The Pilot is 1/16 from Easybuilt - a tad big too.

First try at balsa machine gun - used white "sobo" glue from Easybuilt - good tack and quick drying
