And Johnathan wants to do a diesel 03 mount also, he is now the stateside rep for the PAW diesels. We both would like to encourage more diesel use....he will be working on a fuel supplier for stateside. I'm helping in a easy power package system, i.e. the small motor mount/fuel tank. Fun stuff, I've had up to the 29size PAW motors and loved them....if we can get a fuel supply, I think they will do good in this day n age of 'click-it, and ship-it'.... Cool

Very nice!  I like the blue and white scheme.  It looks like you have two power modules (glow/electric) that are interchangable!  Brilliant

I had to stop on this one to work on my Mig...Johnathan is headed to SMALLS out in Arkansas and needed a power pod for the .03 diesel.
But the Mig is currently a hanger queen, waiting on more paint. So back to the Mercury project, I have the power pods almost completed. The wing is on the board, almost completed.....

I hope the tissue will, Ive been wetting my tissue with 75%alc/water lately with good results, not a lot of shrinkage but gets the wrinkles out. Still working on getting better, someday my tissue will look like youse guys'!

Here's this morning work

Cross sticks going in....trying keep it straight. The wood is fair, I'm building with original pieces and not deviating from plans. I would love to place a few gussets around! But no...

Sounds like a nice model.  Nice simple rc setup with 3 channels.  Lots of fun!

Will be following this with great interest.

Are you gonna keep the cells or go to lipo?


This one is my buddy johnathan's, not sure which way he will go. He works at GM plant 7days a week right now, so he hasn't had the time to drop off the gear.
