Thanks Bob and Tom!  I heard that there is a Hangar here somewhere. That is exactly what I would like to do - post pics of my finished planes.  I just don't know where it is yet.  Bob, I like that, "He who dies with the most planes (whether they fly or not), wins" is a great motto - the guys that will win are the guys who never stopped building their whole life ... I have started building the Sig Customaire bipe - cut out parts and labelled etc etc and I have pics to start to post a build tomorrow ... Smiley

Hello, LWM and Trapper welcome to S&T. Remember "he who dies with the most airplanes built wins" no matter if they flew or not. I remember those days of flying CL after school also. there is a section here for your hangar where you could post all of your built airplanes. The more photos the better.

Again, welcome to S&T

Bob

GREETINGS EVERYONE !!!  I'm looking forward to some great fun on SnT, and learning from, and enjoying, all aspects of the aeromodelling hobby from all of you great builders and aviation historical researchers.  I am 60 now, retired, and my birddog "Trapper" is almost 7. I was born in 1956, and built and flew control line balsa models with Cox .049 and .020 engines, and a plastic Cox Spitfire and plastic Stuka, smashing them up, building again, flying them, smashing them up over and over - we had great fun when we were kids!  We even had a control line model airplane flying club in grade 9 and we would all bring our models to fly after school.  The last model I built in 1971 as a 15 yr old kid, was the Sterling Spad (all of my old models are all long gone ...).  I did not build for 30 yrs after that - then in 2001, I built a Guillow Fokker Triplane just for the heck of it.  I did not build for another 12 years, then in spring 2013,  I started back fully into the hobby starting with a Guillow 500 series Spitfire.  To date, I have 20 models on shelving units on the wall. I joined Virtual Aerodrome in Nov 2016, and have now joined SnT.  Hello Bill Parker!  And every one else from VA! Hi John Oshust!
  I only have 3 hobbies in retirement now - my model planes, my bird dog "Trapper", and my piano accordion.
