A flying rubber-powered B-17, likely with your gear-boxes set up to a rubber motor buried in the fuselage. Good thought.
I have printed the plans for the bonanza. I have wanted one of those longer than the others.

I know I am going to have a full plate in September, 2 or three builds at once, instead of the Whitman Bonanza I will go with the Joe Ott B-17, I had a brainstorm, brain blast, whatever you want to call it but I came up with an interesting way to power all 4 engines by rubber power, I will not say how I am going to do yet, lets see if anyone can guess before you see it.  Wink

Cheers, Ray K.

I am torn between the Focke Wulf 198, the Lysander, the Ercoupe, the Bonanza and the Douglas O-43A. I keep moving from one to the other as a favorite.

WOW! Ian, and I thought I had it bad.

It's up to the builder and what requirements if possible contest participation requires.

I'm in and have not decided between the Cessna Airmaster or the Luscombe Phantom, maybe both depending on my time. Are we allowed to laminate outlines or stay true to the plans?

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.
