Scale models in the garage...

Post  stuntflyr on Tue Feb 13, 2018 11:49 pm

Here are some Scale models piled on a box in the garage. I built the Triplane in high school, it has a Tee Dee 049, my eldest son built the Typhoon when was 9-10 with  Babe Bee 049 with twin port cylinder, and the Focke Wulf when he was 10-11 it has a three line throttle system on a Fuji 09 RC.

Very nice. Those need to be displayed in a more suitable venue like a rec room or man cave ceiling.

Yes.. those are beautiful scale-model airplanes! I suppose if they survived the move from CA to AZ.. then they'll be safe enough until you provide a dedicated space. My models that have escaped any major hangar-rash are the ones that have "hung" from the ceiling/rafters. I always figured that "hanging-high" was reasonably safe. Even if something "bumps them"... they can swing-away with minimal damage.. as opposed to being knocked off a shelf and falling to the floor. I use bungees extensively in my model-airplane storage. I hook the "hooks" around the landing-gear or "nose" and also the tail-end of the fuse.. and hang the model inverted from the ceiling.



Unfortunately.. that Sterling Monocoupe in the above photo was damaged before it came to my shop. My dad built both; the green Veco Warrior and the Monocoupe.

The Warrior has a Veco .35C that's been removed and stored with my other engines.



The Sterling Monocoupe has an OS .25 FPS that's still mounted.

I'm all in for the Focke-Wulf 190 with that big old radial sitting up front.

akjgardner,
The Consolidated Typhoon solid model kit. Jeremiah built this and then refinished it once he learned some more about finishing. They're really neat models and fly pretty well. I had an almost complete selection at one time. Mustang, Zero, Typhoon, Spitfire, Corsair, Focke Wulf, Stuka, and a couple others maybe. They're 18 to 24 inches. Thick sheet wings and tail, shaped block fuselages.

Bob,
The Guillows 25 inch Focke Wulf is a good flyer rubber powered or IC. Jer framed this up and sheeted it with 1/32nd contest balsa sheet from Sig. It's tissued and doped, painted with color that I can't remember. It's got a JRoberts bellcrank and an old Fuji 09 that my brother used in an RC airboat and sunk a few times! He flew it better than I, the performance at the '93 Nats were remarkable. He scored mid pack with 24 contestants, all Open but him, a Junior. He won Junior. He won in '91, '92 and '93. He placed in 1/2A Proto Speed and just missed in Mouse Racing.
