Terrific hanger and thank you for sharing. Do love the Airmaster and your work is outstanding.

Great builds!  I have a soft spot for the Waco SRE, there's one in my hangar as well.  Just got it back in the air this weekend after crashing it at a FAC contest in March.

Thanks Smiley

I do use dope, non-shrinking as far as i can tell. I usually start with glue stick but trim is easiest to apply with dope and thinners. Had a bit of an issue with the silver lettering on the Cessna 165, where the thinner seemed to dissolve the color too! Need to be careful with that next time.

MB...you have a great fleet of planes there.  I really like you tissue finishes.  Do you use dope on the tissue or something else?  Great pics... and it looks like you have a nice "Fetchermite" to help retrive your models! Smiley

The Latest Build is another Peter Rake Design. It is a Cessna 165 Airmaster with 18in Wingspan for which Peter published a plan on HPAs plan gallery.

I cut the parts with my router again and built the prototype. However there was an issue with the tailplane incidence that i initially misinterpreted as nose heavy, trying to fix that i got the CG too far aft and the plane was nearly unflyable.. so much so that i crashed and destroyed the model in short order... i really liked the design so i built a second version with a different tailplane incidence and teh original CG. That did the trick, the plane is now flying very well.

The next build was a Veron Comper Swift.
when looking for tutorials on building Stick and tissue i found Mike Stuarts wonderful Free Flight Scale page. The very detailed Comper Swift build article on it was a major help in the previous builds and i really liked the Comper.
I had just recently bought a small CNC router and made teh Comper my first self cut kit Smiley
The build was very easy and fast, the model came out pretty nice and i even managed to not spoil it with airbrushing the colours over the color tissue. Its a bit underpowered but flies super nicely!

After the Waco i decided to take on a kit from my kit stash that i had aquired 10 years earlier and never built.. a Dumas Aeronca Superchief.
at 30in wingspan it`s quite a large model, with a lot of wing area. The structure is quite light and i was happy to try something a bit more fragile.
The built went real well, until i finished covering. I covered in white Esaki and wanted to airbrush the yellow finish.. and that turned into a complete disaster..
So after a night of sleeping over it i decided to completely recover the model!
taking the tissue of basically destroyed the tailsurfaces and wings, but i could at least recover the fuselage. So i redesigned the wing a bit more to the pattern of Peter Rakes WACO wing and made laminated outline tailsurfaces.
The finish was in yellow tissue and tissue trim.
The mdel flies extremely well and SLOW ! at 60g total weight she`s a floater.

The next Build was a Peter Rake 18in Waco SRE

This build really hooked my on tissue ! It was also my first tissue trim over tissue build and came out much better than i ever hoped. It`s flying absolutely wonderfully! it`s a bit heavy as i used a 2S brushless setup, but even at 70g all up the flight characteristics are amazingly nice

Well as i`m pretty new on this foum i`d like to show my stick and tissue Builds here, don`t worry it`s not a very long list Wink

My first Stick and Tissue Build is a Keil Kraft / Mercury Tiger Moth. I inherited this kit from my Grandfather, who got me into model building and flying when i was a small boy.
I started the build in 2008 and after framing the wings (i usually started most of my foam builds with the fuselage and some builds stalled without wings.. so i decided i have a wing-o-phobia and decided to cure myself by starting with the wings first on the moth !) i lost my building "mojo" and for 10 years i just couldn`t make myself do any building at all.
10 years later all of a sudden the drive to build came back and i finished the Moth within a few weeks.
The model turned out quite well and i found that i didn`t need to dread tissue covering at all, but rather that its a real enjoyable part of the build.
