Yeah, in a ill conceived notion that I’d catch up with Jason, I bought the Green Monster just for the engines. You can see one was brand new, and one had the RC throttle. I think it’s made of pine,, so it’s more of a teather car/plane than airplane!!

I loved that plane Rene, liked it so much I saved a picture.

Same with the second picture down. The rest are mine. Just casual finds that I discovered looking around my albums. I have many hundreds of Cox products pictures. Many are befores and afters.

Fun times! I too was wondering about the 'tether plane'. Sure would be interesting to see it run all together. The rest are also great pictures of fun little projects. Thanks for the great pictures.

I have to think some of those were designed and built by children. I need to believe that to keep from laughing Smile

The green plane is way cool! Very Happy Looks like something Howard Hughes would have built Laughing thats the great thing about these engines. So much can be done with them. Ideas tried out by children and adults. Or Adults that havent lost that streak of wonder Laughing

Well, when you think about it, Howard's seaplane never got very far off the water either.

A little soap and water, Howards wax, a tether line and wind them up. Airborne over bumps. What's not to love. Smile

I'm thinking about building a replica based on the pictures. No balsa, instead luan, white pine. Same engines, gear, paint. Nice winter project. Expect to see something by next Spring. Smile

I might need some specs Rene.

Ooh. I will patiently be watching this. I am sure you will do a great job of a replica.

Maybe it is a new style of aero-art?  Look what I found on Craigslist- Houston:

Could that possibly be a DIY Weather/Wind Vane?

Lots of those were featured in model airplane and woodworking publications.

Popular Mechanics/Science had many such projects.

I think you have it SB. The outsized propeller is a clue providing it's bushed somehow, also the swing base.

Rene was kind and set me the specs, but now I'm torn....balsa or pine. Balsa, a little camber in the wings and who knows. Tether or C/L. Pontoon landings would be a challenge. Thinking, another challenge for me.

Well, if you can't decide, I guess the only logical solution would be to build both..... Very Happy Then you could compare the characteristics of each and then you would know....

Sorry Bob, I had to say it. Tough call. Balsa would probably be easier to sand and such, but the pine would be more 'authentic' to what you are trying to replicate I believe, that is if the original was a hardwood of sorts.
