I have to tell ya man the Arrow II with the conventional tail and retracts was a nice little airplane, especially with a 3-blade prop.

I heard that that -T-tail was a terrible flaw. The only reason they did that was aesthetics. What a stupid thing to do. I did not know about the cooling problem - yikes. What did the plugs look like running her rich all the time?

BTW: I used to fly all makes of the PA-28 Cherokee series. Only one I didn't like was the Piper Arrow Mk. IV with the T-tail and turbocharged engine without any cowl flaps for cooling. Had to enrichen the mixture to keep the engine cooled down. Because it was out of the prop wash, combined with the wing blanking the airflow, that T-tail had a tendency to stall first during the flare to the runway making for some "interesting" landings.

Heywoood, you've done a masterful job on this racer. Really impressive, right down to the rigging. The rigging alone must have posed some challenges. Really admire your approach. Fantastic build. Congratulations! Looking forward to your next build.

Thanks Don - BtW there is a feller over on the Stick and Tissue website who has a copy of the Cleveland Models plans for the Laird Solution LDC-W300 that you built so I linked to your build thread - hope that's ok. He's a Canadian like me so if he asks any questions you gotta talk s l o w...lol

It sure is. Beautiful job!

Thank you, John and Ray - the Laird was a fun build. I plan to continue with the Dumas 400 line of Golden Age racers at some point. The kits are just terrific.

Thanks Robert - I really enjoyed putting it together

I loved going flying in a Piper Cherokee Arrow II - from Gillespie to Lake Havasu back in the day...but you can see out of a Cherokee pretty well. This thing...I dunno man

Very "cool" - need to get in a fly this machine! (for those with the "guts".....)

That's something 45 would do - not me
