Hey, looks like that Zero is smoking?
Well, what can I say? Ya pick a fight with the best, ya end up dead with the rest!
To see scale planes fly on Youtube. Youtube, it ain't just for kids anymore!
Thanks Mark Coffin for these mighty fine plans.
Mark recieved the plan of his choice and a copy of this fully restored P-38 plan for FREE!
HEY KID! Paw ain't gonna be happy with that face. hehe
Do NOT confuse this plan with my very similar RC version. This is a line control plan.
This is a nice plan for twin gas and fixed landing gear. And no cowls to buy as the plans show you how to build them out of balsa.
47" wing span. 40" length. Power: 2 - .09 - .15 engines. The Magazine article with a BOM is included.
HISTORY: The XF7F-1 (Grumman design G-51) flew for the first time in December 1943 and met the Navy's requirements for a multi-engined carrier-based fighter aircraft with a ground-support role. The first Tigercats were delivered to the fleet in April 1944 but operational problems and changing requirements led to the production cancellation of some of the 500 ordered aircraft. Soon after the production of the F7F had begun, a two-seat night-fighter variant - the F7F-2N - was produced temporarily. Then F7F-3s were built (with more powerful engines) and until late 1946 more F7F-3Ns and F7F-4Ns were produced by Grumman. All in all 36 F7F-1s, 1 XF7F-2, 65 F7F-2Ns, 189 F7F-3s, 60 F7F-3Ns and 13 F7F-4Ns were produced. All three night-fighter variants were two-seaters without nose-guns, but with a radar in the aircraft's nose. Some later modifications were F7F-3Es (with special equipment) and camera-equipped F7F-3Ps.

47" wing span. 30" length. Power: 2 - .19 engines. The Magazine article is included.
This plan, like the rest of my plans, are best suited to those who appreciate quality, craftsmanship, and a sense of pride in ones work. Originally, the plan was named "Dumbo!" as you can see in the color scan.
Drawn by Paul J. Palanek, a master draftsman who took pride in precision and details by drawing some great plans.
Using my skills and modern technology, I reworked Paul's plan in such a way to make it more attractive and more user friendly while preserving this beautiful masterpiece.
I often receive e-mails telling of great valor and duty to country from sons whose fathers manned PBYs, Bombers and other instruments of war when they where young. Like those sons, I too am a proud son of a vet who served with honor and dignity on a submarine during WWII and the Korean War. On behalf of those who have shared their father and grandfather deeds of honor with me, I hereby salute our fathers, for they where truly members of the greatest generation to have ever lived.
The Red, White and Blue never looked so good!
Vickers Wellesley Stunting Bomber
A skillful builder could convert this Large Line Control bomber into a small RC plane by installing ailerons.
HUGE 60" wing span. 30" length. Power: Fox .35 shown. Very nice magazine article & BOM is included.
HISTORY: This was the first bomber to apply a geodetic construction. It was a clean monoplane with a very large wingspan; bombs were carried in streamlined boxes under the wings. Two Vickers Wellesley Bombers made a non-stop flight of 11,525 km in 48 hours from Ismailia (Egypt) to Darwin (Australia)! The type was obsolete at the outbreak of WWII, but some saw combat in the Mid-East.
I have provided a close up color scanned picture of this plan for you to examine so that you may rest assured that my work & this item is of the highest quality.
This is a beautiful and well detailed B-26 line control plan.
Wing span 48".
Power 2 K&B 29s shown. The magazine article is included.
HISTORY: The Douglas A/B-26 bomber was the only American bomber to fly missions in three wars. After World War II, it served as a first-line bomber during the Korean War and during the Vietnam War.
Douglas built 2,503 A/B-26 Invaders. During production a number of modifications were progressively introduced so that by 1948, the A-26 was one of the few wartime aircraft types still in service with the post-war U.S. Air Force.
Invader versions included the A-26D and A-26E light bombers, GA-26C ground training aircraft, and the KA-26A tanker. Some A/B-26s were equipped for photo reconnaissance, and during the 1960s, some surplus A/B-26s were used in the target-towing role. The last U.S. military Invader was retired in 1972 and donated to the National Air and Space Museum.
