New models
« on: January 03, 2021, 20:19:16 PM »
Following up on Bill’s request for new models, here’s my offering... a Fillon’s Champ. Spec’s are 111” span, weighs less than 2kg, originally a free flight model designed in the early 1940’s. semi kit from Belair laser cut kits.
I saw John Woodfield’s model on YouTube and followed some of his ideas on adapting it to r/c. I increased the fin area and set elevators into the tailplane. I also fit airbrakes. Looking forward to flying it sometime soon.
Regards, GB

Trying to get the mojo working again, so spent today lining up the wing joiner in the Kostez wings

Well done Bill and Ralph, great to see work progressing. Hopefully we’ll get time to fly all our new creations before too long.
I have been working on and off on a Moswey III from Frank Albrecht, so rather than start something new, I decided to get stuck in and finish it, hopefully get it flying this season.
Specs.....
1:3.5 scale; 4m span; full timber kit, all ply. I covered the wings and tail in .4 ply and the fuse in 2mm balsa
Some photos......

Very nice Ger, just a few questions if I may,
1) Is the designers name really Frank?
2) Has you building head quarters moved outdoors, The shed looks great even if we only get a peek!

Keep up the good work,

See you soon,

Frank

Hi ‘Frank’, hope all is well with you.
Yes indeed, his name is Frank. I can only assemble the Moswey outdoors. The shed is 5m x 3m and is still 2m too small in every direction!! Just finished glassing the fuse this evening. Hopefully it will be ok when it’s fully dry.
Talk soon Frank, stay safe,
Regards, Frank
