Show and Tell: John Borton displayed an horizon sport cub that they are pylon flying at the indoor flying on Saturday night. They are fast and agile. If you purchase one remember they all look alike so you might want to put markings on yours so you know which is yours. The price is $99.00.

Ray brought the wing in for the “Either Or” plane they are building. The sizes are 60, 50 and 40 size making them a different wingspan and length of the fuselage. These are being built on Monday morning at the hobby town build. These planes are designed to put the wing on the top or bottom of the fuselage. For more information you can check it out on the RCgroups web site or contact Ray Foley.

Tom Kroggel talked about how to do “fun scale” on a World War I plane. He talked about what he has done on the Albatross biplane. This includes panel lines and how to dull the monocote with a product call dull coat by testers. He gave an explanation of rivets and stitching made with canopy glue and hypodermic needles. You can use pastels sticks sold at Michaels to weather the finish usually just using black, brown, or yellow. You use a sanding wheel, Dermel, to grind the pastel stick to make dust. Then use a soft brush to apply this dust on the surface. He talked on how to make a plastic prop look like wood and make the wheels look like they had grease smears. He demonstrated the sound system in this aircraft. This was a good presentation. I did not include everything he said, so if you missed this meeting, you missed out on a very interesting talk. If you are interested in doing a “fun scale” on your plane, contact Tom

Adjournment: The meeting was adjourned at 7:50 PM.
