OK fellas, lets see those beatiful MM/Laser Arts planes of yours. I'll start it out with my MM/LA Switchback built in Jan 07.

Looks nice Frank

I've built the Cessna 180, Dandy, Dandy sport, Hellcat and Tyro from mountain models. The Tyro and Hellcat are actually designed by Molt Models, but mountain models kits and sells them. My hellcat was slightly modified, in that I added 15" to the wingspan (the kit was only used for plans...)

The Tyro is for aerial photography with a pentax optio. -Steve

Hmm......I've had a few Mountain Models planes. I lost pictures of 4 other SwitchBacks that were sold/given away in a hard drive crash. I think I still have enough to last a while though.

Frank,

Not counting different wing combinations for the same fuselage I have 12 Mountain Models, 3 Molt Models and 1 Laser Arts P-51 kit. This does include 3 unbuilt kits. I'm sure there are a few more laying around here somewhere.

Wow, Joe! You must be personally responsible for the company's well being all by yourself! :p

Actually that is a testament to how well these planes are designed and how good they fly.

Hehe Joe is a Mountain Models Junkie for sure. I met him in AZ in Jan and he was buggin Brian about 5 different kits or mods to existing kits. Then again he was buggin the other designers too!

Great looking planes. I'll dig up my Hellcat and Tyro pics and post them here too.

That's good for us Joe. Keeps him pumping out the airplanes.

I wish he would hurry up and pump out a Switchback 150. I can't wait for that one.

I have an empty building board and to be quite honest the only thing I want to build next is a SwitchBack 150. I had very seriously planned to scratchbuild one until Brian told me that he was seriously going to consider kitting one. Why scratchbuild a crappy one when I can just wait and get a great one from LA/MM? I know Doug is doing this project and he's quite busy but I hope he gets it ready soon. I know how well the Tyro came out at 150%. The SwitchBack is going to benefit just as much or maybe even more from a 50% enlargement. I can't wait for this kit!

Maybe I'll strip and cover one of my SB Sports like I did my scratchbuilt 75% SB Sport. Then when the 150 is released I'll cover it the same. I attached a pic of the 75% SB with the PT19 SB for size comparison.

I have a NIB Version 1 SB Sport kit but didn't want to break the seal so I just ordered a SB fuse kit from Brian. I have stack of SB/Dandy Sport wings so I'll get busy covering just like the Mini SB. Then when I get my grubby mitts on a SB 150 I'll cover it exactly the same. Can you guess I'm excited about the big SwitchBack?

You do nice work Joe. I am also really looking forward to the SB150. What motor do you plan on using in it? I might as well start "shopping" now.

Frank,

The E-Flight Park 480 is so perfectly matched to my Tyro 150 that I'll be using one in the SB 150 as well when it's released. I just got the Park 450 motor that I bought on RCU today. It may end up being mounted on my EVA. So far I'm quite impressed with the E-Flight Park series motors. I'll be buying many more of them.

Ha, I didn't say which Forum.

Are those inrunners or outrunners. I'm not familiar with the E-Flite line of motors.

Thanks,
