Gentlemen,

For your enjoyment I took some photos of the scale & speed models entered at the NW Regionals Championships in Roseberg, Oregon on the Memorial Day weekend. The SR-71 is from Orin Humphries of Lynnwood, Wash.  Apologies for not knowing the names of the other builders of these fine models.

I have plans for a F-5 that I've wanted to build for more than 30 years. It's very cool. Ken

Is that a Medallion .09 in the AT-6 ? If so, what kind of flying lines were used?

Sorry Ti,

I wasn't able to talk to the builder, but without doubt the lines were per your AMA C/L Scale rulebook. Not sure if it was an .09 or an .049...

Cheers, Paul

Mr Humphries' B-25 used to sport a yellow paint job. I much prefer his latest colors.

It would seem logical that due to it being a 1/2A scale contest, any displacement larger than .050 would disqualify it. I would also think that .012 stainless would be the suitable lines. There's little weight and drag resistance penalty between .008's and .012's. .008 stainless lines are a real pain in the rear to maintain, they're very susceptible to damage and kinking. Scale planes typically don't perform like stunters or combat planes therefore .008's could be used without fear of failing, it's just that they're fragility makes them a chore. The use of Spectra while approved for combat, is always a debatable subject. Many CD's will deny their use because no one wants to assume responsibility.
