A final pic from my cookup build...colorized just a little by myself.  Kind of reflects the wonder of flight way back in the beginning....

Gads but that is a cool build. Love to see some flight shots. Been musing over a Walrus.

Neal,

Just today I saw some pictures on Facebook of a very similar model being stooge-wound at an eastern European contest.  Link here:  https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=827482727431775&set=pcb.1800763556622155...  There is another picture of the setup if you click the right arrow.

Looks like that builder made a blocking stooge to restrain the upper and lower wings while winding.

Neat model!

Ian...I tried to use hard balsa for the struts...sanded to shape...thinned to the point that its hardness didn't make any difference anyway. Smiley  Actually, I was quite surprised with the steadiness and strength of the final structure...most of which comes from that center engine support "tower." This is one of those peanut model that is a bit deceptive in size...large for a peanut...actual ac had relatively short wingspan.

Mike and Rick...the only "stooge" used on the model is the one holding it and winding at the same time.  Reason...I'm just a bit leery of that motor stick (which is removable for display).  I could have built in an aluminum tube peg for a winding stooge...but I was a bit afraid that stretching out the motor might put undo stress on the strut-structure...like rip the entire top wing off in the process!  So...as it is, even while I hand wind the motor...I'm eye-balling that motor stick (which is hard balsa), watching and waiting for it to start bending.  Hasn't exploded yet...but....  What I actually envisioned was for a two-legged stooge to hold the model by the engine...while a winder unhooked and stretched out the model in front (note the motor hooks).  And Rick...is the first model I've ever made that uses a motor stick...a technique that has been around forever...just not for me. Wink

Nice "start to finish" Neil  Smiley - only in plans that I have, have I actually seen the extended rubber motor mount in the diagrams - never on a model until now - very ingenious!! Smiley Smiley. Tremendous job!

Now that is very cool!  I'm trying to think how that would go in the stooge...

Looks good Neal! Did you use hard balsa for the interplane motor mount struts or bamboo?
