Got up early this morning beating the heat and got out the B&D hedge clippers and weed eater. Did the whole yard in less than two hours. Covered head to toe in boots hat and coveralls hoping to avoid the chiggers. (I'm ate up.) Didn't avoid the hornets, black and white devils, got me on the back of my neck, the only uncovered spot on my whole body. Later, dripping wet, took a shower.

Trash day tomorrow, gathered it up and wheeled it down to the main road and picked up the mail. Good stuff. Music, Robert's stencils and an engine.

Turntable on loan from my Daughter-in-law. Reminds me of the early 70's when I played Mireille's albums while building model airplanes. None of the sound quality today but nice never-the-less.

Lost another one today, Olivia Newton-John gone at 72.

Thanks for the stencils Robert. More to come.

Are the plastic wrapped records going to stay sealed for a collection, or do you still listen to them?

They are in open sleeves Chancey, but if they were sealed I'd be ripping into them like a monkey on a cupcake. Smile The vinyl dealers that I buy from are very good about protecting their records.

It didn't take long Robert.

30 minute soak, soapy water/clean water rinse but this time I added a final dust-off in some 91% alcohol.

Nasty little begger that did not want to co-operate.  Would not break loose, a combination of frozen piston and starter.  A lot of heat, burned fingers and a lot of back and forth oiled rocking finally did it.

Badly bent needle and spring, tool marks, broken string pull starter, and clogged NVA and fuel tank did not make it easy.  A found in the garage glow plug is a non starter as it has an idle bar that interferes with the piston.  Got some new one's in the house.  

Spins freely now and even with a loose plug has compression.  It will run as is.

First one I have seen with this type pull string guide.  The engine on the right is quite unique, the pin right behind the prop serves to hold a rubber band for starting. Same wind clockwise procedure.

Still work to do, remove the tool marks, rework the needles spring and install a proper glow plug and test.

The rest of that "good day." Won on ebay the same day as the other things arrived.

I did not include them at the time because it might imply to everybody that I'm a little nutz about this stuff, but seeings you all think I'm a little crazy anyway, here goes.

Another Wen Mac Corsair. Another bidder bid me right up to my one-time proxy bid. Ok, so this one is no bargain. I'll live with it. Confirms that the silver pilot of the other one is not a previous owner add-on and the gold stripes (that I removed from the first one) wern't either. Leaving them on this one. Missing a wheel and a broken elevator pivot (a simple repair) otherwise very nice. I will rob the wheel from the other Corsair and clean it up to spectactular. And it has the canopy!

The "Attack Helicopter" was a bargain. Cheaper than flea market. First day BIN and I jumped on it even though I'm not a fan. You do enough of these and you begin to recognize even from pictures never ran never fueled examples, and this one fit.

The seller over-packed it, but I'm not complaining (they will get a packing atta-boy) but I felt like a surgeon removing dead skin, delicate as I did not want to damage one of those fragile rotor blades.

Mark Boesen recomended the cement, excellent for gluing loose decals back onto plastic.

I do like those helicopters. Can't believe what they go for, being only a few cents worth of blow-molded plastic! Yourdoing good grabbing them on the cheap. Learning a lot from you and your Corsairs.

Another reason I went a little bananas on that Corsair was because of the rather rare white three bladed propeller.  You just don't see them.  I have a single white standard prop but that's it.  Most are red.  I did find a NIB box of five last month.

 I saved the foil gold tape I removed from the other one, but it is so stained I think I will paint it and keep this newer one as the original.  Motors locked up, it will come apart.

I'm not sure if it was factory applied or included in the box for the consumers to put on.  Looks like it may have been provided on a Scotch tape type dispenser.

Still sorting a replacement canopy, made a buck out of pine.  Going to try again to make a clear one.

Those wild blade Wen-Mac props have always been an attention getter, and your white one is definitely a first. Thumbs Up I remember those red props. My brother Harry's ones were black on his 1966 all chrome Corsair. I still have one or two of those among my modelling stuff after these 56 years.

Wide blade meant that the Wen-Mac .049 was a torque engine. It does not spin up quite as fast as Cox, but to give these marginal engines the power to pull those heavier RTF's gave these engines a ghost of a chance by putting out the thrust past the cowling.

I've got that odd ball shaped Testor's prop for their .049 Rotomatic with plastic tank mount.

Peter Chinn in his engine article, http://sceptreflight.com/Model%20Engine%20Tests/Testors%20McCoy%20.049%20Rotomatic.html, mentioned that it was well matched for the engine. The prop that he shows on the test engine may be a K&B prop.

Some engineer at Testors probably to mitigate the boredom working there, became very creative in the propeller design shape. (Speaking of boredom, I thought working with computer systems and automated structural specimen tests at Douglas Aircraft would be exciting. I found that such testing is one of the most boring jobs in the world. There is more excitement in watching grass grow. Doh! ) Very Happy
