I built this model back around 1953 and it quickly became one of my favorite's.  It looked great and flew the same.  I especially liked the mid-wing design and the way it fit into the fuselage.  

A couple of years ago I found that Black Hawk models was reproducing it so I bought one and put it together.  At the time I had some McCoy decals and stuck them on.  Never liked the effect so yesterday I pulled them off, surprisingly they came off easy and left no residue.   Going to replace them with CEF decals.  

But while looking at the tail section I found that I never added a rudder.  Just another dumb mistake on my part I thought until I checked my original 65 year old plans.  They didn't specify a rudder.

They did include that plastic pilot which I painted green both in the airplane and on the plans.  Kids!

I have a long history with Walter Musciano. In grade school I found his book in our library, "Building and Flying Model Airplanes". That book inspired me to build my first balsa wood airplane and power it with a brand new Babe Bee engine, which I purchased from a department-type store, before there was a Walmart. It was the first control line airplane that flew for my brother and I! It has solid balsa construction, and a 24 inch wingspan. The plans and instructions say to power it with a McCoy 19 engine! We found that the Babe Bee was adequate for our skill level, which did not actually exist!

The original model airplane is long gone, but I reconstructed one from memory, and then later found his book for sale, which I immediately purchased! It's funny how close I came to the actual airplane that was in his book.
this time, the airplane is powered with an OK Cub .074Walter Musciano Scientific "Cyclone" 20190812

I want to make it a SIG Dewey bird Gus, but it has elements of Walt's Super and standard Stunt Masters.

Wing tips/tanks look like his F-94 Starfire.

Colorful picture Kim.  I have that Golden Hawk by Black Hawk model kit ready to be built.

I finally located the file with my Golden Hawk. The thing has been to S.M.A.L.L. but never flown while there...maybe this year will see it get some time.

Love the colors and color scheme Kim, wheels too, Williams bros. maybe. Hanging a Space Bug out there too. Seems like I have seen a couple of them powering an airplane of yours in the past. Most people protect them, you fly yours.

I have a couple of Space Bug's, types A&B with different rear intakes as I recall. If I ever build my GH I'm slapping one of them on it. Imitation ya know. Bob

I know the Space Bug is a great engine and am jealous of your nice example. However it looks like some sort of extra long space alien sex toy on the nose of your beautiful Golden Hawk.
