Rather than step all over oldguys coping plans post (again) I thought I would revisit my old ebay  Strutz Aircrate rebuild, and to clear up a misconception.  A rehash from years ago, but thought newcomers might enjoy it.

https://outerzone.co.uk/plan_details.asp?ID=2415 A Peter Rake design.  

I love this plane.  Gives me pleasure every time I look at it, which is often.

It arrived minus wings and the front structure, but included a very dirty and worn Enya .09.  It featured a working escapement system which  I removed and replaced with a control line bell crank.  I made the wings from an old crashed R/C model that I had, but retained or rebuilt the rest.  

The wings were cut down to the models scale length.  Painted it with Top Flights Lustrekote primer and white.  I did not use the original throttled Enya rather I installed a C/L Enya .09 not the four stroke in oldguys post George.  I tried the four stroke but it was a poor fit and probably to much engine for this application.

I have not flown it yet, waiting for one of you C/L pros to show up and air time it.

Bob, I never tire of seeing your restorations. Even if you review as re-runs. If its a good show, it IS a good show.

Beautiful. You should re-title this to 'From A Mess To A Masterpiece'. Great work, you should be more than proud of it.

I once had a girlfriend in college that could do all of that stuff. Unfortunately, as a starving student, I couldn't keep up with her incessant demands for more batteries.
