This next airplane I have not heard of (shows you how out of date I am) a
YAK 11
called
Mr. Awesome
that has raced at the RENO air races.
From what Iíve gathered while researching this plan subject, the airplane has been really modified for racing. I am used to P-51ís, F8Fís, and the Formula One and Vee racers, but never a YAK. WOW! I have been asleep for the past few years. Itís like the older generation of my family back in the late 1960ís and 1970ís with the automobiles and airplanes changing faster then we could keep up.
Any way! Enjoy the read and the videos.

I have spent most of the day doing research for this cookup. As in the past I had been excited about joining in with others and especially watching everyone's posts on their building techniques and tips that I am able to use to enhance my own building experience.

MKelly has really lit a fire under me with his posts on his Earl Stahl Spitfire re: how he stencils the panel lines on his aircraft. I had used a Sharpie fine point after dope and usually cut the tissue if I pressed too hard on the tissue.

With the fire I now have I wanted to try to† pass on my enthusiasm and get everyone enthused about airplanes. The plan is to post about each plan starting with the first and the last plan and meet in the middle. I have posted Wikipedia links on most of the plans subject and YouTube videos along with photos of the real aircraft, just to make it fun.

The first one is the
Douglas A1E Skyraider:

OK! that (4) and your plans do note if they were redrawn from some one else's.

I cannot wait to build another Cheesy I have always looked at the Grizzly since Ive read up on it back in the 1970's Roll Eyes

Please note that a few of those are redrawn plans or enlarged plans that someone else designed. 

I didn't realize I had that many on the new site!!!  Most haven't been flown yet! So any problems or suggestions for improvement of the plans would be readily accepted! 

I guess you can put me down too.  I'll have to decide which one.

"Postal" refers to a contest in which a modeler packages and mails his/her model to a "Proxy" to fly it for him/her...then return it by same method.

I just pulled out the
P-47 Razorback
and the
F8F Bearcat
(from behind some boxes now that I am able to really move around now) that I had built from Tom Akery's dime scale plans and thought maybe for a cookup down the road what about using his plans. Im off to FedEx to pickup some of those plans that I had emailed to my local FedEx to see if this is a viable
option to wailing inline for them to use my USB.

One more idea, how about having a postal contest with the finished aircraft.
