Two Mulvihill wins and a Nostalgia Rubber win in the past month with this one from 'the collection'. It'll get another airing this weekend, along with two of the others. Really enjoying them.

1/2A Texaco Foote Westerner



A gift from Larry Davidson.   This silk covered model was built in 1993 and was quite competitive.  I have to fix the warps and tears in the stab, but it should be flying again soon.   This is the A version of the Foote Westerner with the extended wing.   It is now available as a kit.   It's distinguished from the C version by the larger fin and undercambered stabilizer.

I just finished building a flying wing and the wings folds, 1/2 a size  
Gil Morris 



I used the micro timer from Bob Stalick in Jack Knife ( flying wing design) and it worked well but  the model spins like a top going up from engine torque, Plan to build Swing Wing Delta in place of Jack Knife in hopes of improving performance from less spinning which eats up energy.. See Vladimer Sychov article of 2012 of similar history http://www.thebuildingboard.com/2012/02/vladimir-sychovs-folder.html  Thought you might wonder where the Micro Timers are going.   Gil
