I'm in with the Piaggio.  Not sure whether to do Bernard's Dime (Pseudo) Scale or his 'sleeker-dimer' versions - been wanting to build one of these ever since Bernard designed them Undecided.  Again, I don't expect to hold to the time restraints Wink...

and I won't be able to start until after Thanksgiving...

I edited my original post with the Piaggio Pc7 plan...I'm interested in a cookup! That's now 4 by my count.  Any more out there up to a cookup? Come on y'all we need at least 5! Smiley

David, Schneider Cup cook up is a good theme since it was a different class of racing. Almost country against country spending lots of $ and many of the pilots were military.

I really like the idea of cook ups (this will be my first) But what do you guys think of the subject being something close to the last one? Is it too soon for a Schneider Trophy theme? Maybe we can get at least 5 guys and everyone decide? Oh wait. I just thought. Maybe thats a little too close to the Election Tongue

Bob, I bet you would even be able to get that plane to ROG.

If we can get five (5) modelers committed to the cookup we can start the Schnider Trophy cookup.
If not please go ahead with your build and place it on the build section.

By the way, I believe there are readily available plans for all three of the posted planes.

Piaggio Pc 7 see attached plan and parts sheet by Bernard Guest

Curtiss racer: Click Here  Comet's plan: Click Here

Supermarine S.5: Click Here

1929 Gloster IV twin float racer: Click Here

Macchi M.67: Click Here

Couldn't find the Fiat?!!!! oops

I am always up for a COOK UP and I remember someone from a while ago mentioning this Schneider Cup racer:

Schneider Trophy Cook up?

What do you guys think of an early winter build of one of the Schneider Trophy Cup sea planes?
Or do you guys think this is too similar to the last cook up?


David
