That canopy frame looks very familiar ...

Looks like something James should know all about.

Does this get anyone's attention? Restoration at the Massey Aerodrome in Massey,MD.

Now that's a nice Foamie Model 18 Mark:-)

James: Could you add "Loening OL-8" to the scratchbuilt category for me? Thanks.

I've seen photos of this one and I'm sure it's impressive in person, all shiny and what, but it's not how I see this plane. You can find lots of liveries for a MIG-17 on the web and many of them look as if LSD found its way into the paint shop.:-)

The point of camp is to get rid of the kids for a few weeks.

I thought the point of camp was to blend in with the surroundings.

That's pretty slick!

Would you believe: MIG 17!

David: Mif 17 at "Wings over Waukegan" last year. Looks like one of your smart phone app pictures!

I tried mine years back. It's labor intensive. Being somewhat lazy, I too prefer my Husqvarna. Really glad not to heat with wood anymore.

My wife painted a sign on one and is in our cabin, the other as a decoration on an outside wall on the porch . Years back I did try them. Currently prefer my Husqvarna and Stihl!

Hanging on the wall is the only place for those @&%$* saws. My favorite Uncle was a sawyer and his hired man (my Brother) nearly lost a leg to one of those D#@* things.

I have two large two man saws. Now wall decorations.
Don C, Comment for image # 3390615 Apr 15 16:06
I do! Finishing up engine details- not doing much detail -and waiting for my cousin to send me pics so I can put the proper numbers on. Then it's done. Thanks for the info on the tools. Glad they have found a good home.

Don C: CLeaned up and functional. I don't have one of those man-killer 2-man saws to test the big one out on. Thanks for the stuff. How's the C-46 coming along?

The BE 12 series had a faulty interruptor cam connecting the Vickers to the engine. The cam only functioned at full throttle. When fired at slower speeds the gun would hit the airscrew. To eliminate the problem, the airscrew had deflection plates installed on the blades, permitting bullets to ricochet off the prop at slower speeds. Fortunately Ogre is equipped with the improved gear, really a cam, so the airscrew does not need the amour protection!

No Sir. It is the BE2e at Duxford. I just happened upon the photo today while whiling away a cold dreary afternoon.
