    Welcome! Very nice fleet! I love the Golden Age airplanes.

    This is my scratch build I designed to look like a Golden Age Racer. I was hoping to maiden it Sunday, but the weather doesn't look good.

  2. Good job on the scratch build! Its got a fuselage like the R-3 where it gets real tight at the canopy. Looks like it'll be fast. What engine you put in it?
    Whats the wingspan?

    The span is around 88", I changed the wing tips mid project, and never actually measured the final span. It's powered by a DA50 with a tuned pipe enclosed in the fuselage.

    Thanks Wade.
    I had another one but lost it, due to structural failure...due to the pilot forgetting that a plane has a limited ability to carry copious amounts of smoke oil!
    2nd flight after the $2,000.00 paint job!

  8. Hi Snoopy1, thanks for the greeting.
    The C-188 Ag wagon is a ARF from Nitroplanes. Got it several years ago. The yellow and white is the paint that came with the plane. Fiberglass fuselage. I had the "real flames" custom painted.

  9. Got more pics internally? That thing looks amazing to be from nitroplanes, that's awesome
  10. My mistake!...Correction!...I got it from EasyTiger planes. Wouldnt buy from them again.

    Ok, so what you see on the inside is 2 (40 oz..=80 oz total) smoke oil tanks on each side of the fuel tank (60 oz). I started off with an Evolution 7 cyl 160cc Radial but it didnt have enough power for that big (and heavy) plane so I put a DLE-170 on it. Second flight after I had the $2,000.00 real flame paint job the wings just folded...about $7K gone! I had it way too heavy. I thought that it really didnt matter how heavy you mad them as long as you put a big enough engine in it...LOL
    I never really liked that plane anyway.
