Aiming at some variation of VS-41 serving aboard the USS Ranger (CV-4)....  Slow going here...too many irons in the fire at this time of year.  Have a nice Squadron Signal book on Navy color schemes...gives an explanation of what all the different colors mean...cowl, tail, fuselage band, wing chevron...etc.  Very handy....

The open (uncovered) panel on the bottom surface lower wings is to assist in applying pressure while attaching to the fuselage.  Panels to be covered in situ.

Bob...snowed here a few days ago...and is cold outside..cold as....like in the low 20F.  Nice Vultee...love the canopy...model is very pleasing to the eye. Smiley

It snowed here in Texas today, been a long time since I have seen snow here. So my flying aspirations are dashed. Guess Ill start another build.

NORTH AMERICAN P-51A MUSTANG by Model Aircraft Kits Plan no. FB6

Tom, I kind like that plan and just printed those plans and at the moment am taping them together. I still have OD tissue, but will need to get some Neutral Gray.

The Vultee Attack is finished also. Ive built this  a/c before, this design balances just right and there was a study done on the Comet dimer designs and this a/c flew off after launch.


Bob
The Vultee looks great. Good job.

The Wirraway looks too much like the Vultee you just finished...

Go for the NA Mustang and make it an A-36 Apache!!!
That's my vote.

I also found these plans in my flash drive and now have to choose (2) that I want to build, color scheme is my main consideration.

Since the weather is nasty, i guess ill build another dimer. Which one to choose Roll Eyes

I found this plan. Does anyone know if it qualifies as a dime scale?


Bob, the Caudron looks to me like it fits the FAC dime scale rules.

Richard, I ran across some WWI dime plans while looking for another build. Maybe these will give you a boost.

Bob,
For a dime scale you've put just the right amount of detail in cowling, tail wheel, canopy etc. 

Your Wright coupe looks great!

The Vultee looks fantastic!!!

The CURTISS WRIGHT COUPE is done, but the weather has been cold, windy, and wet here so no flying for now.

The Curtiss Wright Coupe looked naked so I put some trim on the fuselage and made what looks like a tail wheel. No where near the really good detailed TW's that Craig, LWM, Mike, and NB have shown on this forum.
