The Spitfire's main antagonist during the Battle of Britain:

Back to work on my Midwest Models' ME-109 (actually BF-109...Bayerische Flugzeugwerke (BFW-Bavarian Aircraft Works), but it says ME on the box.

This will be the G...or "Gustave" model, primarily because I'm lazy, and the G model won't make me install struts on the horizontal stabilizer.  And before I get "History Nerd-Pounced" about this...I KNOW the Gustave was introduced after the BoB...but I don't care.

The Gustave was also the second of the "clean wing" 109 variants, with all the guns located in the fuselage, and no barrels protruding from the wing's leading edges (more justified lazyness for me) to mess up their smoothness.

The Enya .15 Castor Slinger is only temporarily installed in the Gustave's nose, as I search for a properly bulbous-shaped spinner like those of the G model.

Why all this detail concern over a non-scale, slab-bodied control liner?  It's just the way I roll...er, fly.

The really good part is that I finally started feeling like messing with these silly things again.  

"Go Gustave!!!!"

Love your first picture Kim, picture of the Bf-109 for insperation, Sig-ment at the ready and an Enya .15 with the early carburetor "temporarly" mounted. You going to throttle this thing?

Seekers playing softly on the boom-box?

The Airacobra/King Cobra lays snout-down, waiting for some attention after an abrupt runway edge at SIRS Field removed its nose gear.  

These things weren't disassembly-friendly when they were new, so I got to REALLY have my MoJo on deck when I mess with it..  

The Corsair awaits what I hope will be a breath-taking upgrade to a newer, meaner engine I just got in a trade with Joe "akjgardner".  THANK YOU JOE!!!!

It had some pretty serious power during the SIRS Fun-Fly a week ago, allowing me to pull "The Impossible Loop" twice in the same flight.  I don't have video (I know...I know..."If it's not on video, it didn't happen!"), but intend to remedy that on it's next mission.

The dissembled guts of my Stuka lay under the sheltering wing of a Pietenpol I got from Kevin Wilfong at S.M.A.L.L.  The Stuka has semi-severe trauma from internal plastic rot...think cookie crumbs...of the posts that space the fuselage halves, and engine area.  But I'm hopeful it'll again rise to battle.

Got a bit of work done, but now got prep for tomorrow's "Summer Bash", hosted by "The Sky Squires"...a great club across the river, near Marion, Illinois.  Can't let all them electron herders miss out on the joyful noise of a castor-slinger in full song.

Anyway, Everybody Have a Safe & Fun Weekend!

Video or not, the loops happened. I know, I was watching in disbelief.
Never was able to loop any Cox plastic plane myself, nor ever seen it done before. I've always dismissed such claims as brag, but Kim and that little Corsair proved it can be done.

I would loop my PT-19 all the time. However, there were times it wasn't successful. My buddy Dan flies the Red Baron P-51 which is quite small. It's fast but not great in maneuvering. It will do essentially 8's, wingovers and some inversion. he tried a vertical 8 and it sunk like a rock on the bottom almost destroying it.

"The Chester Aircraft Factory"...also known as "Billy Lang's Basement"...suddenly gifted me a new, scratch-built "Bee-Tween" 2 channel sport plane, complete with personalized pilot.

This is the fourth in a series of Bee-Tweens from Billy's shop, with his, Leo's, and President Brian's E-Powered version turning Breezy Hill into "Bee-Tween Headquarters".  We'll have a Class Photo at some point.

Billy and Leo's planes are a couple hot-rods, with Billy's packing a Black Widow...not sure what Leo has in his, but it's healthy.

I wanted to "go-for-cute" with mine, and did a gasket job on a Babe Bee that was minding its own business in the back of a drawer.  (I WILL, however, be packing the Shrike's Black Widow in a discrete plastic box... just in case the trash talk gets out of hand).

Anyway, the Babe got some good runs, and will hopefully be in the same mood when we go to Breezy.

And, since I haven't done a "The Many Engines of Cousin Bill's Q-Tee" video in a while, I'm prepping some castor-slingers for flights in the near-future.

I think I got this Space Bug Jr. from Ron several years ago, and it's last outing was alongside a Space Bug Sr. while flying on the the Lazy Bee's "Board of Engines" at a past S.M.A.L.L. Fly-In:
"Out in the Shop"     A "Bee", a "Bug", and a "Tee Dee" (sorta) Dsc_0162

Other than a quick check for goop, and new head gasket, it was test-run and then attached to one of the Q-Tee's swappable engine mounts.

And lastly, I did a break-in run on a "Zipper" Tee Dee .049 from Stan at Vintage Performance Models.  I added two head gaskets, and it did about 30 minutes of fueling on the run.  It'll be going in my +10% "Big Otto"...if I ever get around to working on it.

And on we go....

No, it's black Brodak dope on a balsa patch.  I'd turned my back for just a moment at S.M.A.L.L. one year, and a gust of wind blew it off its stand.
