I built two Argus in the mid 60s and both were excellent flyers. My second model (picture below) suffered a ground accident at a Fargo annual contest when I stored it under my buddy's DeSoto and didn't tell him it was there. He drove over the wing and although damage was done the spar itself was intact, which attests to the strength of the design. I started cutting parts for a third one and had the fuselage sides and tail feathers cut out for it. I stored these parts until this year when I was contacted by another forum member about them. I recently packed up these parts and shipped them to him. Hopefully another Argus will rise soon.

Yesterday I was poking around on the SIG website/ catalog.
Went to the section on covering, and was surprised to find  they are listing silkspan once again!
All three grades, light, medium and heavy.

 Have you found a reasonable source for your silk?



I was given this Vendor by another modeler some time back.

This link should be the page of what I use.

5mm, 36" 2.99 per yd. I buy 15.00 worth at a time.

I order it right over the phone.

Curt - That is a sharp looking Galaxy !!!!

Jamie -   I really enjoy flying my old Torpedos,  favoring the .32,  but their design has a drawback on profiles in that you burn your fingers every time you set the needle valve.   You should enjoy the Galaxy, it is a pretty decent flyer.



I used a leather glove when adjusting the Torp needle valve. I didn't use too many K&B in my youth simply because of that. I did mount a few inside with the tank on the outside with sometimes reasonable success if I could keep the fuel line short enough by drilling a hole through the fues and feeding it to the fuel nipple. Just was a problem with adding just enough lead to the outside wing.

On a value for dollers ratio I think that this shades the plug
