I just found another Golden Era racing airplane in one of those confounded boxes that has everything that is not within reach or memory.

I am considering doing the Bugatti 100 so I can use my new contra-rotating gearing adapted from a model helicopter. The W/S would be between 20 and 22 inches. The other one under consideration is the SNCASE SE 100 so I can incorporate the Durand twin-drive transmission I demonstrated on a test rig. Again, a W/S between 20 and 24 inches is estimated.

I'm going with the Crosby CR-4.


Sorry for the large pic but it is the smallest I could find that my old computer would fetch up.

Just for clarification Golden Age of Aviation is 1920s - 1930s.

This bird (Keller Bechereau), AK, was in the FAC Newsletter several issues back.  Maybe last year.  Interesting history included.

I'm going with the Fokker Super Universal: here's a link to one in the UK indoor scale Click Here

It seems that the Golden Age Air Racers and Civilian Aircraft won the poll with 10 votes.  So we will start this cookup officially in December and look to close in March 2021.

Here are the rules:
Build any aircraft in this genre to any scale you choose.  If you finish before March (some of you are very fast builders) feel free to build another plane/s in this genre.   

I liked the trophy that Pete made for the Mooney Cookup on HPA and I'll see what I can come up with in a similar vein.  It will be awarded to the modeler who get the most votes from his fellow modelers!

So build what you like, take all the time you need and have fun. 

Don't be afraid of including some history of your aircraft in your build!

Enjoy yourselves and I'm not holding y'all to the starting date as some want to start early due to the pandemic we seem to still be facing, I know I won't be out and about so help youself. Smiley

So far I have the following down for the cookup:
Sky9pilot/Tom-- Fokker Super Universal
Bigrip74/Bob
Mkelly
PB_guy/Ian
Alfakilo-- Kellner Bechereau 28 VD
NewBuilder/Mike --Crosby CR4
PB_guy/ian-- Bugatti 100
Brad -- undecided at present
Who am I missing?

Mike Isserman built Pres's Boeing 306.  It flies surprisingly well - see video here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZKeHwvGKiVA&t=137s.

In addition to the peanut he built one scaled up to 27", said that flew really well also.

AK...I think most of his plans have been built.  I've seen several of the Boeing flyingwing in the FAC Newsletter and on some of the FAC videos.

I've often wondered how many of his plans were actually built and flown. I was looking at his Boeing 306 when that thought came to mind.

I haven't seen a Bruning 109, but I do like that 190D plan!

If the vote stays with Golden Age I'll probably start with Mike Isserman's WACO C7 from the latest FAC newsletter - maybe on skis!
