This is the De Havilland Super Chipmunk. I've tried to keep it as scale as the real one Art Scholl flew. Those who don't know Art Scholl, he was stunt pilot and was killed filming the flat spin scene in "Top Gun". They had the shot, Art wanted to go one more time to make sure they had a good safety shot in case the first one failed to be what everyone wanted. The S2 Pitts he was flying flat spun into the Pacific Ocean and neither he nor his plane were ever recovered. The last they ever heard from him was, "I have a problem, a really big problem."

So here's to you Art.






GD forum blocked me the first time. I hope this makes it through.

As they said in The Flight of the Phoenix, I only flew powered gliders. I'm not proficient in planes like this one. I build the because I am bored sitting and it's cheaper than a shrink. One day I will find someone in one of the clubs around here who has balls enough to think me being lesbian won't rub off on him or her. Sorry Jeff. I not that good of a pilot. So why do I build? To keep from having to go see a shrink.

Sorry I haven't posted so much lately. I'm ok, just tired of fighting with the veterans administration for my rights. Idaho isn't a place for diversity I can tell you right now.

Off the soap box.

I hope your day goes better.

This was my fifth in this last year, if you count the one I fell on and destroyed. It was the Cessna 182. I have another Cessna partially built. Scraps was more of an experiment to see how much of a plane I could build out of scrap wood. Except for some crucial parts, everything in Scraps is recovered wood from other kits including parts from the ill-fated Cessna.

I have a box in one of the bedrooms which I have opened several times and re-taped. It's a 1/3 scale Piper Cub. The wing is 12 feet... which means if I was to pull this on a trailer down the freeway I would have to get a special permit for over width. affraid ...I think this is going to be a winter project. The kit is an ultimate scale plane which means if there's a rib, it belongs there and nowhere else. The plane is big enough and so well designed I could, if I wanted to, build into the airframe actually cables that run off the stick and rudder controls. The Cub also has a variable incidence stabilizer. What I mean by that is the stabilizer has an adjustment just like the full scale plane to adjust trim by moving the entire stabilizer up or down. I am seriously thinking about adding the actual scale sized crank inside the cockpit where it is on the full scale Cub. I would have to come up with some pulleys and cables. I was actually thinking about using deep sea fishing line. I can get stainless steel line cheaper than hobby cabling. Still it's going to be $100.00 for a roll of it but what's a $100 bucks when I already have over $3500.00 tied up in the plane, motor, onboard starter, radio and a few things I have forgotten because I don't want to open the box again... oh ya, I had to buy a gas welding set to make the landing gear... another 100 bucks.

Let's add this up ok?

$599.99 for the Balsa USA Piper Cub kit. affraid

$300.00 for two rolls of Cub Yellow fabric covering for the Cub affraid

$299.99 for the FEMA On board starter. affraid

$57.00 for an extra set of plans (I hate building on my original plans) affraid

$1399.99 for the OS Max Pegasus four cylinder engine. affraid

$270.00 for the radio without servos. affraid

$216.00 for 6 servos. affraid

$99.99 for the mini gas welding set plus extra gas cylinders. affraid

$60.00 for the silver solder to build the landing gear. affraid

$100.00 for cabling. affraid

$35.00 for the scale aileron kit. affraid
*************************
The grand total with the plane still in the box is: $3437.96 (I'm skeered ta build it.) affraid affraidaffraid

Do you still want to build model aircraft? It gets away from one in a hurry.... lol!
