Gieseke Nobler for VSC

Post  stuntflyr on Tue Feb 13, 2018 1:18 pm

Started this 15 years ago, feverishly working on it this week off to get color on it. Nothing like a made thrash to complete a model before the contest!

Not nearly enough, early pull-handle MGB. You sure live right!

My favorite Nobler. I have had 3 of them and I recently acquired another one. All of them FP .40 powered.

Thanks guys. I bought my MGB from my mother, when I was 16. She bought it new when they were in England on vacation when my dad got off his probationary year at TWA. It was delivered to Chicago. I love Amco accesories (Mom ordered a radio, Talbot mirror and Motorola AM for weather and that beautiful chrome luggage rack) so found the Amco center console and I just put that Les Leston wheel on there, it had a Nardi I bought when I got it because my Dad was one of those guys that gets in using the steering wheel and said I couldn't drive it until I replaced the broken banjo wheel. I added a leather aftermarket shift knob and a black Talbot Berlin I got in a deal for three when looking for my Jamaican stuff.

This Gieseke Nobler is a UHP kit. I'm using an Aero Tiger 36 with a round 4 oz plastic clunk tank. They always work. It's tissue and dope except the wing, it's PolySpan.
I'm cleaning up the fuse and spackling the joins tonight so I can put the fillets on tomorrow along with a new nose ring (I originally built it for a Fox) and tissue the fuse. I plan on using fast drying lacquer primer a lot!

Got all of the fillets on , finishing up the nose ring and cowl today and will tissue the fuse.
It'll be red with white trim and blue pinstripes like the World Championship colors on the old Top Flite box art scheme. Most famous scheme for Bob's Gieseke Nobler in my mind.
