It's getting colder again and it's time to build. The first small project is a stick. something to relax. Wink  The kit is inexpensive and of good quality. The construction is progressing very quickly.Real-Kit Stick 74e98310

The matching red foil was also included. To test, I covered the elevator. The foil didn't really convince me, I will probably use Oracover again.

A Cox Pee Wee should fit pretty well I think. Smile

Seeing all those nice models hanging from the ceiling of your shop tells me  you do not need too much of my amateur advice on building, but I would suggest you add a doubler to the engine bulkhead/firewall so as  to ensure your Pee Wee engine mounting screws will have a lasting and solid base even with some unavoidable seeping of castor into the plywood firewall. I most often use blind nuts instead of wood screws to mount my castor slinger COX engines.

I am looking forward to seeing your nice build project develop.

Help and new ideas never hurt! I think I will adjust the nose with some balsa wood to the engine. Depending on how it looks Smile

The stick is only a small side project, provides some variety in building. Wink
I am not sure which stick it is exactly. 58cm wingspan.Real-Kit Stick E79d7910

I always liked the "Stick" series, simple straight forward models that flew well.

I agree, your background models look great and your shop...marvelous.

I really appreciate having a well-equipped build shop.

In addition to all the other projects, I found some time for the stick again.
The wood is not really good quality, but I think it is sufficient.
I still have to get the remains of the supplied foil off the elevator. Doh!
After that, only the electronics are missing.

That is a very nice conversion from electric to glow engine, @Tobaiies. I like the way you made the front fuselage extender to mount the engine, looks very streamlined, adds a polished look to the Pee Wee engine installation. Plus, the transparent red covering looks very good. It ought to be a very nice flyer. Thumbs Up

The kits of the 1950's to late 1970's that were basically continuous runs of the earlier kits (Comet, Guillow, Sterling, Berkeley, Enterprise, Goldberg, etc.), the wood was more or less usable with exception of a few pieces, but certainly not optimal. It sounds like you are reliving our earlier experiences. Very Happy

1959 Berkeley 46-inch (1170 mm) span Impulse rudder only kit build:
Real-Kit Stick Impuls10
Fuselage formers are of such light wood they experienced die crunching.

Real-Kit Stick Impuls10
Fuselage side splice, die cutting was off, had to splice in several slivers to complete splice.

I have never flown in snowy cold conditions. I have heard of some keeping the plane in a warm car, then fast fill and start. Pee Wee with not much metal mass, imagine it would cool off very quickly. Regardless, hopefully our Canadian, US or European friends who live in snowy climates may chime in with their success stories. Very Happy

I've set up a few other kits in the meantime, the choice of wood is much better there. But it seems it's not as bad as it was in 1960.  Wink I think for the price it's ok.

H Tobaiis,

Looks great !
The noseblock will be good to hold while starting...
Winter running Coxes is no problem. Secret is... get someone to fill/start it for you !
Cold fingers are the problem.
A friend had a nice flying BeeTween with a golden bee.
He was ready with his hands in a transmitter glove.
I filled and started.
Good glow with a power panel/long lead.
Prime with lighter fluid or better yet, auto starter fluid (spray ether )
Adjust the needle, switch on plane(important!), then launch.
My hands went straight in my pockets with hand warmers...
Down to -5C is OK. Anything lower gets brutal !
The limiting factor is:
The small airborne batteries do not last long in the cold...
Mostly flew our .40 size planes on floats or skiis depending on snow conditions...

I am enjoying this thread,
Thanks,
Dave

the stick is finished, the small parts that come with it are not that good quality. But the result is not too bad.

Nice Tobaiies !

I really like that it is an electric kit, powered by a Cox !
I have a hard time seeing one colour planes...
I would cut a circle of (a dia.~1/2 between your wing ribs.) of white stick on covering,
To go on the wingtip leading edges.
Stick the dia. on the LE and fold back.
It is like landing lights, when coming towards you...
Try it ! It works !
My winter flying has been with .049s...
You could be in uncharted territories with a .020 !

An Ail/El/R .020 is amazing...
Good luck on the test flight,
Dave
