Thanks, Mike- I have the article, too. It's a neat plan- calls for 1/32" square basswood stringers and spars, and the propeller design looks interesting too. It looks like I'm gonna have to bite the bullet and learn to vac-form canopies, though.

Great choices Craig.  I love that peanut TBM plan - believe I have the Model Builder issue it was published in, let me know if you'd like me to scan and send you the article.

OK- I've been ruminating on this, and my intentions are;

1.) My Peanut build will be a Grumman TBM-3 from the Alan Callaghan plan.

2.) Ace Whitman "North American Fighter"- 16" P-64 balsa/tissue model

3.) If time allows, I might do a 32" Joe Ott "Ott-O-Former" Lockheed P-38 straight out of the box.

Or not...

Build both!  That way you only have to decide which one to build first.  Both look like very interesting models.

Thanks! That's an obscure one I wasn't aware of. Should be an interesting potential build!

Looks good...it was NAA's attempt to make a fighter in the 30s.  I think the USAAC confiscated the batch intended for Peru and turned them into fighter trainer aircraft designated P-64 (derived from the NA-50 & NA-68)... 
This is the spiffy-ist one I've seen, found in the EAA Museum ... Click Here

OK, fellers- maybe this needs to be in the Mystery Plane thread, but it looks more Curtiss than North American to me. It's been hanging around on eBay for a while. Any thoughts?

I believe that I would like to commit to a building effort of a Joe Ott Airabonita, with a possible conversion to a Bell P-39 Airacobra.  More significantly, I truly intend to attempt employment of "crackerbox materials" in construction of fuselage formers and various wingtips, etc.  Maybe it will be successful...and maybe not...don't know, but every time I've ever gazed upon the beautiful blank cardboard of a cereal box...or crackerbox...I've wondered what use could be made of it.  Here's my opportunity to find out.  I suspect the weight of materials will add up in a hurry...sobeit.  Looks like fun to me.

And, in the spirit of General Horatio Gates...being lame (down boys)...I'll be getting a head start (Battle of Camden, 1780).  Grin Grin Grin Grin  Just kidding.... Wink

Bob thanks for having us over - it was great to meet you in person and see some of your models including the Mustang from last winter's cookup.  Look forward to your next builds and getting a chance to fly together!

Thanks again,

Mike

I had a visit from (2) S&T members today after their competition. I had a great visit and learned a few things and got the building bug again. I will blame them for the clean up, movement of wood to the work bench, and the rummaging through my pile of plans.

All in all a great day.

Bob
