I thought I'd share this over here on CEF as I have had some fun with my Tee Dee .09 powered Ringmaster Jr. I bought on eBay.
It originally had a McCoy Red Head .19 and it was energetically recommended to me to not use that engine.

The original finish was doped silkspan which even started out in damaged condition. I masked issues with packing tape which served its purpose well.

Well, as I started getting more and more bold with maneuvers with the plane, I pile-drive'ed it into the ground - mental error, entirely.

So some pre-disastered and post-disastered pics and where I got to today in rebuilding it.
I was gunning to get out and fly with it today, but wasn't ready by the time I was supposed to be headed out to meet a flying buddy.
So, it was getting the fast treatment. Now, I want to backtrack a bit, remove the engine, and re-dope the fuse. Also, the clear plastic canopy was fairly devastated in the crash so I want to shrink-mold a plastic Coke bottle into  new canopy, before flying. Needs a pilot, too.

Some of the "After" shots, first. I have to get to my other computer to post the "Before" pics

Looks very nice. I will be waiting to see your canopy making skills and how you do it. I had tried to make one a year or so ago without any luck. I used the thinner packaging from something I had bought and a balsa plug. I would like to see how its done so I may decide to try it again.

Why not make the canopy out of balsa? They last longer and take more abuse.
