Coming Soon! — WACO Model-SRE Construction Article

Coming Soon! — WACO Model-SRE Construction Article

From our good friend and long time MAN contributor Pat Tritle, this newest project of his is the impressive WACO Model-SRE biplane. Intended as a sport scale lightly loaded flier, the WACO has traditional built-up wood construction, and, Pat offers last cut parts and plastic formed pieces to make the build just a bit easier. The model […]
Sopwith Camel

Sopwith Camel

A classic 1/4-scale British icon of World War I. Viewed by many as the British airplane that best defined air combat during World War I, the Sopwith Camel is one of the best-known fighters to come out of the Great War. First introduced at the end of 1916, it was a replacement for the Sopwith […]

Pilatus Porter PC-6

Pilatus Porter PC-6

A sport-scale STOL aircraft for glow or electric power. My original goal was to develop a light 50-inch-span airplane to fly with the small-block O.S. LA .15 glow engine. I chose the Pilatus Porter (PC-6) because of its beauty and full-scale performance and because it was in my “someday” list. After seeing the glow version […]
De Havilland Turbo Beaver

De Havilland Turbo Beaver

The Turbo Beaver is a large, light-weight park flyer with good small-field performance. With a 60-inch wingspan, it’s rather large as park flyers go, but it handles beautifully in tight places and performs well on small economical brushless power systems. The wings plug in and are retained by rare earth magnets. A hatch provides access […]

Avions Fairey Tipsy S2

Avions Fairey Tipsy S2

Scale and unique airplanes always appeal to me, and when I first saw an article on the full-size Tipsy S2, I knew I needed to model it.  I used 3-view drawing from the article to develop my 1/6-scale plans. The Tipsy airplane line was designed by Belgium designer Ernest Tips. The S2 was designed and […]
1958 Piper Tri-Pacer

1958 Piper Tri-Pacer

I was looking for a new electric park flyer project and discovered, to my surprise, that a Piper Tri-Pacer was not available. Apparently, Berkeley and Sterling produced the last Tri-Pacer kits back in the 1950s. Armed with 3-view drawing and my CAD program, I produced a scale 36-inch span electric model with a scale one-piece […]
Omen III

Omen III

Don Wilke’s “Omen II” from 1968 is one of those birds that just grabs your attention and won’t let go. I’ve had my dad’s 1968 RC Modeler magazine for years, and there was something that kept bringing me back to it. It seems to have the classic early pattern proportions, perfect for today’s sport models. […]
SkyEye Pusher

SkyEye Pusher

Fourteen years ago, my original SkyCrawler design was published in Model Aviation. At that time, neither LiPo batteries nor brushless outrunner motors were available, and video cameras were still pretty big and bulky. As these technologies developed and affordable versions became available, I decided to update my old SkyCrawler. With a name change and a […]
MiG-17 Fresco

MiG-17 Fresco

My MiG-17 was designed around the Great Planes 56mm Hyperflow EDF unit and the Ammo 24-45-3790 brushless motor. This economical setup gives nice e-jet performance with a 4S 2200mAh LiPo battery pack. The outline is true to scale with the exception of larger ailerons and the position of the stabilizer to simplify construction. A fully […]
Shockwave Reno Racer

Shockwave Reno Racer

I first learned about Shockwave in an Air Classics article that had a few photos and several artist concepts of the roughly half completed full-scale unlimited racer.  The purpose of this strange airplane is an attempt to hit 600mph using a radial engine. Yes, 600mph! With Reno unlimited racers often bouncing off the 500mph mark, […]
Bellanca Cruisemaster

Bellanca Cruisemaster

I’ve always liked scale models and building unique aircraft and the Bellanca Cruisemaster is one of those classic general aviation airplanes that’s seldom modeled. To develop my plans I used a 3-view drawing from Bob Banka. My particular model is of a 1951 example I found on Aircraft Shopper Online. I loved the classic turquoise […]
The DH 90 Dragonfly

The DH 90 Dragonfly

The De Havilland Aircraft Company built a series of multi-engine biplanes in the 1930s and the DH 90 Dragonfly was the last of this series. The first design was the DH 84 Dragon powered by 4-cylinder 130hp Gypsy Major inline inverted engines. The DH 86 Express was next, powered by four Gypsy Six engines. The […]
