The biplane in your first two pics looks like an original Lou Andrews Aeromaster Bipe... Kitted in the late '60s by AAMCO. Very popular design...



FYI... Many years after, Great Planes bought the rights to the design and updated it... they also sold an enlarged version of it... and I think there was also an ARF...

That plane is indeed an Aeromaster. Kitted about 1965.
I've converted one to electric and I'm building another one.

The plans on E Bay are a good price. It cost me $28 last time I copied all three sheets of plans for the Aeromaster and the plans had to be cut to fit in the scanner.

Default Aeromaster

I had to totally redo the fuselage on mine,The oil from the fuel saturated the body and dissolved the glue.After month's of copying and cutting out pieces,I'm finally ready for sanding.Along with a few other projects.And if the Oregon coast ever dries up long enough I will get the sanding done and the new colors on.CWDoherty yours looks at almost the same point mine is.Please do post when finished.I will do the same.

I thought that too. I built one and lightened it as much as possible.

After flying it with an E Flight 60, I think I did a lot of work for nothing.
The plane will go vertical out of sight with the electric motor.

I think it would be fine without the weight reduction. Fly more like the way it did in the 60's.

I built one a few years ago and also went overboard adding lightness. The airplane didn't fly nearly as well the the original version I flew back in the eighties. Didn't carry through the snapping maneauvers near as well as the original. John.

Very nice color scheme. Should be easy to follow in the air.
Nice job.
