Found this pic from about 40 yrs ago. I bought an old tri-pacer fuse and built some homemade wings out of old paneling and just build them along with some tail feathers to make a "Static Display" model of a real plane. I finished it and got a used bent prop for free with a spinner too. I used to park it in my yard for fun. I was known for years and the guy with the plane in the driveway!

GMan It looks like you covered the wings with real Ceconite! 1 week ago

Smokin Joe Traded some guy for a 1955 Studebaker. He put it in his yard. I had to take the wings off and store it in my garage as the wind would flip it on it's nose all the time. I traced the rib off the side of the fuse and made the wing and tail feathers. I painted it with a brush. lol How do you like the homemade wings and struts? I build Giant Scale! 7 days ago

Here is a pic of a project I have been finishing up for the wife. Did ''a lot'' of custom work & mods to it. Got a custom CNC machined velocity stack air filter adapter coming for it yet, that will take a cone K&N filter. I 'am going to get one also, & put a 212cc ''Hemi'' predator in mine, plus some other goodies. Even with mods, the 80cc+,, is not near enough engine for my 210lbs. She is 5'1 & 135lbs. ''Plenty for her''. LOL! - feeling cool

2018 will go down as the worst year for flying at Missed Approach in History! Between the bad winter and spring, low participation in flying, and now it went from Summer to Winter. What a year!!!! - feeling sad

I74 I haven't flown since August. Been moving for the last 2-1/2 months, fixing up the new place,, & working a part time job.. Amazing how much stuff 2 people can acquire in just over a decade ! It went straight into winter here in Iowa the last couple of days also. This morning there was a snow dusting on the ground, & temps with the wind chill around 10:00 were 17*f. 1 month ago

Smokin Joe The hobby is going in the opposite direction around here. The last generation was fascinated with airplanes. We grew up dreaming of flying. This generation takes airplanes for granted and is not at all interested in RC planes. All the old flyers are dying off with no replacements coming in! It wasn't many years ago, we had to set a 75 member limit to our club and people had to wait for a spot to... Show more 4 weeks ago
