Hi Bill, Heres kinda how it works with rubber. Litle strands wind farther and give more prop time. Big strands dont wind as many times but give more power.
On that big one, start with 4 strands of 1/4 rubber, about 1.5 times peg to prop lengh and go up from there. You could start with one strand. 2  strands is a loop of rubber. 46 is way two many.
There is an amazing amount of hocos pocos about rubber. I tend to under power with smaller strands so that she flyies around my head and does not go away.
Over at hippocket, Guru has a sheet that works as a good guide line for number of turns. Called a turns chart. Wind a couple OUTSIDE of your model BEFORE you choose a motor. Try not to "pop" a motor INSIDE your airplane.
Your planes look great!

Most interested in the Ryan, but the Mustang is actually a neat little kit as well...

This is SCIGS30's effort:

Thank you John!  I just shot em both with Krylon, and they're out there drying now.  Pics in a minute!

Tom, they're two kits.  Gottem on E-Bay cheap.  Using them as practice for the two kits I still have by Easy Built Models.  

FF-93 Baby Moffett
Wingspan: 32"
Class: Sport flyer

...

and:

FF-82 Moffett
Wingspan: 46"
Class: Sport flyer

...

I'm going to have a bunch of questions regarding the proper construction and installation of the rubber motor...  The bigger of these two, on the plans, says 28 strands of rubber?  Really?

So you lay out 28 strands, cut to some magical length, and tie the ends with heavy thread to make a rubber band on steroids, right?

anyway, when the time comes, I'll pop a flare...

Very Nice Bill....

Did you scale one up or did you just build two separate kits?
