Supermarine S.6B


Hi to All:
This is my model of the Supermarine S.6B forerunner of the Supermarine Spitfire.  The model details are:  wingspan 73"; weight 15 lbs; powered by O.S. 120 4-stroke engine.  The model was scratch built from Jim Pepino plans and is made of balsa covered with silk and Brodak dope.  The model flies off the water beautifully and lands with a typical skimming action.  Next week its home will be the Florida Aviation Historical Museum at Sun 'n' Fun in Lakeland, FL.

Top Flight Gold Edition original Contender

Joan gave me a Top Flight Gold Edition Contender.  The original Contender was designed by Dave Platt in 1969 which I built and flew in the early seventies.  The Gold Edition was re-engineered and drawn by Mark Hampe and the instructions by Jim Sandquist in 1999.  She also got me all the other stuff needed to build and fly the model, servos, receiver, switch hardness, wheels, Monokote, glue,  and etc, and etc.  What A Great Gift by My Loving Wife.
 
I started building on Dec. 27, 2010.  The photos attached were taken 23 days later.
 
I got a lot more to do; but we have a long cold winter here in Sandusky, Ohio
