Dusty Crophopper – Kit Bashing an Animated Disney Superstar

Dusty Crophopper – Kit Bashing an Animated Disney Superstar

Kit Bashing is always fun and entertaining, for both Logan (my 12 year old son) and me. What is ‘kit-bashing? This is the question asked when my latest project was described to a modeler friend. Well, It’s part way between building from scratch and building a traditional kit. Using an existing kit as a basic […]
Tips for Flying Twins

Tips for Flying Twins

Let’s face it, there’s just something extra special about twin-engine RC aircraft. Most modelers stop what they’re doing when a twin fires up on the flightline.

Skyraider A1-E & A1-H

Aviation enthusiasts should already know the story of the Skyraider. Several excellent books, including Profile’s publication, have been written about this exceptional airplane.
