Hi Kerak !  I will start a Hangar - I'm still getting settled in, and trying to build and post and study everyone's models, and try to keep up with the latest replies to all  the builds etc.   Smiley
I have posted a few pics into my introduction, of the 20 planes I have on my shelving units in my apartment - just for an overview of them all sitting beside each other - I like looking at them up there  ....  Roll Eyes  BUT, is there ever a lot of dust to clean off all of the time ...  Lips Sealed

Thank you LW for the kind words.  While I'm certainly not a "perfect modeler," this hobby has been perfect for me.  Wink  As a kid I used to watch B-29's fly low over my little house on their landing approach at the local air base...and I guess the effect of seeing that beauty stuck with me "real good."

I see from some of the photos you've posted...that you have a real collection yourself.  I particularly like that Pfalz DIII...that's a beauty.  I'd like you to start a hangar so I can see more!  Smiley

Again...thanks for the compliment.

Well, HELLO Kerak !!  I finally just figured out how to get to "Hangar Space", under "The Stick & Tissue Hangar", which is halfway down the main "Stick and Tissue Forum" page.  Your Hangar Barn, full of super builds, is nothing short of sensational!!  The planes are all impeccable!  I need more time to study them more carefully ... Smiley

It was accomplished using an old graphics program I've had forever...Paint Shop Pro...but could easily be done using something like Photoshop.  I'm just trying to simplify the posting process.  Grin  On the other hand...a person could assemble a very nice coffee table book of their models...get it printed and bound professionally, something like that.  My daughter does that a lot with some of her big family vacations.  Thanks again Tom for all your efforts on the website.

PNut Grumman F6F-3...based upon a 1943 Comet Models plan that originally had a 24" ws.  Love those old Comet designs.

Thanks, Tom..."all that wing" is relative to a peanut, though.  Grin Grin Grin  Do have to say that she is light...left off a number of details...like the vertical stabilizer fairing and tailwheel...as well as the two under-wing oil coolers.  Test glides are very promising...nice straight flat glidepath.

The rc ship started its life as a Piece-of-Cake...then eventually suffered a dihedral brace failure after many flights...and was rebuilt as a whateveruwanttocallit.  Flew quite fast...and well, surprisingly.  That brown monokote was some really ugly stuff I had lying around...good enough for a rebuild.  My son holding it, Bryan...managed to thermal it the first time he ever had his thumbs on the sticks!!  We still laugh about that today.  I finally had to tell him that he couldn't fly what he couldn't see!  Grin  Yes...is a BabyBee out front...with a Perfect metal tank scabbed on behind with rubber bands.  Ran a line from the extra tank to one of the fueltank ports on the Bee...worked really well...lots of flying time.

Brandon's holding a generic Bostonian built from a magazine plan...also flew well.

Life was good, then.  Smiley
