Tom - Start the cookup any time that's agreeable with everyone but I will not be able to start until just after American Thanksgiving. As to the separate pages for each build, I agree with Richard it is difficult to dive through the build page to find a particular person's build. Rather than create pages for individual builders, I would like to see the search engine actually search the build for a name. I went to the Schneider cookup and found a couple of names and typed them into the search window for that cookup to find their page but rather got the same names in our current cookup page. Just a thought.

Hey Tom, as long as we are voting on a different start date, could we please have a vote on keeping our builds separate and under one separate Cookup  Board "2017-2018 COOKUP", instead of everybody's build piled and lumped on top of each other?  "The only thing I might like to see is everyone first register for the cookup, but use separate build threads, instead of everyone crowding into one build thread - just a thought ...
      I find it hard to find an Individual guy's plane in the Schneider Trophy Cookup that has 32 pages, with a little bit here and a little bit there, of a guy's construction of his individual plane, spread out over 32 pages."
     My vote will be for separate builds.

I believe that the Comet Harlow is 16" W/S and 12" long, unless you are reducing the plan?

Tom,

I think I've found a dime scale plan that appeals to me - do we have to wait until after Thanksgiving to get started?

OK! I  will blame y'all for me ordering some contest balsa from SIG , Esaki tissue from Shorty's Basement, and some props from E BAY. I printed the plans on my printer since I could not get to FEDEX  and taped them together, and they look pretty good. Cannot wait to start Shocked

Richard, I don't know if this will help, but I posted some work in progress shots of my first white chalking effort on my Monex Moni.  There might be a nugget of help buried in there somewhere.

Hi Dave - it will be a first time chalking for me.  I will be referring to the actual Tutorial links that Tom has posted here   

   http://www.stickandtissue.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1334028646   

   "Chalking Tissue instead of  Paint", under "Tissue and finish", under "How to build Model Airplanes"
     Herman Goering had his own personal all-white D7 that he flew around - to other countries, I thought I read somewhere.

Well, it still won't post a pic with the above - lets just try the above sentences, without a pic attached.

HEY - it works without a pic attached - now lets try to attach a pic using "modify"

Wooo Hooo - it now works - all I have to do is attach a pic using "modify".

The D7 looks great in all white!!  Are you going to 'chalk' the tissue?
