Default Buzzard Models Aeronkish Kit

Buzzard Models sent me a couple of kits to build and review because he liked what I did with his Fokkerish kit. So thank you Buzzard Models!! The kit came well packaged with no damage. The only unusual part of the build is rolling the wing over a tube to get the curve needed in the wings. This is not hard, just need to be careful not to tear the wing. Here is a link to the kit:

This is my inspiration for paint. I am using Mr. Magoo for the pilot.

Getting it painted. Nothing fancy, just using paint brushes and acrylic paints.

Looking good.

That is the Aeronca C3, built in the 1930's.

No maiden , so you still might have a chance to get that maiden flight. Problems with the esc will try again Wednesday. I am sure this is going to be a great little indoor plane.

Well the saga continues. We loaded our planes , backed out of the driveway and my brothers Fokker D7 box fell on the new Aeroconish smashing the back of the plane. Some hot glue and fiftenn minutes of repair and off to the gym. Good news is it flew great. Everyone that flew it loved it. The plane flies super slow and can fly in a really small area. Who knew Mr Magoo was such a good pilot. Here is the first flights.

Who would have thought Magoo could fly that well. It looks really nice in the air and flies as good as it looks.

I am really happy with how well these kits go together and fly. It was a real hit in the gym last night and everyone commented on how slow it flew.

Building number 2. Going with a caveman theme and we know there is only one caveman that could possibly fly a plane, Still need to fit Dino in, his head may have to go through the roof.

Duh, I missed the rock wheels. I did not say anything about your not being able to cut out a round circle. I just thought you had shaky hands.

Lookin good. Like Dino in the wind.

Turning 64 this year so my hands might be shaky but I think it's my mind that's going. Fred now has moving feet !!

You are just a kid. I am currently 76 and still work full time. It just keeps getting better and better. The model, that is. Life also.

I had stage 4 cancer a year and a half ago so took early retirement. Still work some landscaping during good weather. Knock on wood I am cancer free !! This was kind of an eye opener and got me back into the hobby which I love.

Been there and done that. Although not stage 4. It is an eyeopener.

Was going to fly this at the gym on Wednesday but once again had issues with the used motor that I installed. Put a new motor and esc in today and had to give it a test. It was a little breezy for this 5 1/2 oz plane but it flew well. Winds were at 8 mph so I think it will fly ok in winds under 5 mph. This is definitely going to fun indoors.
