Dave Platt Half Tone 1


I got involved in building a Dave Platt designed Half Tone 1/2A job from 1961 ( plans in Sticks and Tissue # 57 ). I'm ready to start
covering  ( silk ) and I hope it will be done for next weekend. Powered by a mini Oliver Tiger .5 cc from Barton Model Products in
the UK.  It has twin ball bearings and really screams. I'm using a 2.4gh. Spektrum RX with a modified servo decoder board driving a Bonner
SN escapement. Single channel naturally. I can't wait. Photos to follow.
