I have over the last ten years built several Go-Devil Jr. models powered with Magnum 25 or equivalent engines. They required two to three ounces of lead in the nose to get them balanced. The last was done exactly the same as those I built in the fifties, no tissue except on the wings, no primer, just clear dope, then color. The new engines are also heavier than the Glo-Torp 29 I used to use. Back then it was "bolt in the engine and go fly!"  I could not figure out any reason for this until someone mentioned that he thought the dope we are buying today is heavier than that of the fifties. Anyone else noticed this?? Bill Byles, any comment?

Yes it can, and that's some BS.

Don't sit back and complain.  Do: http://www.modelaircraft.org/events/ruleproposals.aspx

A model with a professionally built wing, tail feathers and flaps, can qualify as a BOM model.

Oh, no bad habits.
Plenty stable.  In the M.A.N. Super Satan article , Scarinzi penned that when maneuvering, it as though the SS bounces off a rubber wall.
If you haven't flown a model this fast, it'll surprise you with how quickly it can change direction with a really hot mill.

Brett I never said Bob Hunt wing on these forums. What is the matter with you Brett. I have no cohorts. My opinions and observations are my own. I support BOM criteria. Everyone is cheating? I never said that. I know better.

When I built my own plane and flew it at the NATs in Advanced it was judged for appearance. When I flew a plane someone else built I said so.

The rules do spell it out.  Basically, though, if you started with a big box from Brodak that said "ARF" on it, then you'll have a stiff uphill battle to convince anyone it's not an ARF.

In the past many Open models and Advanced models at the NATS used wings built by someone other than the competitor.

    Which was legal at the time, and legal now (specifically called out).

    Dennis and his cohorts have been using this "but someone used a Bobby Hunt wing!!!!!" for the last 10-15 years to incorrectly claim that "everybody was cheating" as a way to argue against BOM. It was never illegal. MOST of the arguing about BOM has been about such strawman claims.

Steve's definition applies to Open and Advanced at the NATs. If you build one of the major components, either fues or wing, and apply finish, you are the builder of the model. If you build the fues and buy the wing, it is also necessary for you to install controls.

This definition is a recent clarification of BOM criteria.
