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!

I don't think that he did a 109, probably because there are so many plans for them, but he did do a Focke Wulf 190-D9 https://outerzone.co.uk/plan_details.asp?ID=2971

I haven't found one on HPA or Flying Aces Club plans.  I don't think he did one unless someone else know better!

Nice article Tom, that was when air racing was special. (for me at least)

attached red tissue to printer paper with glue stick then tried to make  cowling for the Spartan. After many, many tries I was successful. The cat "Cooper" was on my desk when I came in from doping the fuselage and wings.

Perfect timing, voted for Golden Age and just laid down the trailing edge for the Spirit of St. Louis wings. I'll pick them up and set it aside waiting for the starting gun.

The Golden Age of Aviation is the aircraft of the 1920's - 1930's.  Basically all the aircraft between WWI an WWII civilian and military.  Depicting the move from the wood and fabric biplanes to the all metal monoplanes.  This is a wide open category of aircraft!
