Easy Retract Installation

Easy Retract Installation

One of my favorite planes is the Top Flite Cessna 310. One thing that was missing from this nice scale plane was the great looking retracts that are available from Robart Manufacturing. I decided to install them and I was surprised just how simple it was. I began my endeavor by purchasing all the necessary equipment, […]

Don’t trash that crash!

Don’t trash that crash!

We’ve all done it. That one dumb thumb move, the very brief moment when our brain wanted to go right and our thumb decided to go left. There’s nothing you can do but pick up the pieces and take them back to the shop. Some professional aircraft impact testers even have a trash bag in […]
Giant Avro Vulcan wows the crowd!

Giant Avro Vulcan wows the crowd!

Powered by four (4!) 160 Wren turbines, this massive 20-foot span Avro Vulcan wowed the crowds at the recent RAF Cosford Air Show put on by Britain’s Large Model Association. Piloted by Dave Johnson, this giant jet looks and sounds like its big brother and in the video flies at speeds of up to 120mph. […]

Workshop Build-Along 3 — Alien Aircraft ArrowMaster Biplane

Workshop Build-Along 3 — Alien Aircraft ArrowMaster Biplane

So far to date, building the ArrowMaster 55 from Alien Aircraft www.alienaircraft.com has been a lot of fun. The parts fit has been excellent and very accurate. At this point in time, I’ve got about 3 hours into building the bottom wing. In this post, the ailerons are built, shaped and hinged. I also add wing […]
Frank Tiano Enterprises Dogfighter Pilot Figure

Frank Tiano Enterprises Dogfighter Pilot Figure

Here at MAN, we firmly believe that a scale model without a pilot in the front office is, well, just wrong. Why would you go to the trouble of building a detailed fighter and then fly it with an empty cockpit? We really like this new 15-inch-tall articulated pilot figure from Frank Tiano Enterprises … […]
