When is it going to fly, or is it a hanger queen?  You do terrific finishes.

Doc,

I don't build hanger queens. I fly all my models as I have over many years. Some being better built and better "lookers" than what I'm turning out in CL.

I enjoy building more than flying, but I do fly.

I have to brake in the engine in the Mig-3 and in the ARGO. I have to remove the engines to do this.

I expect that these models, especially the Stuka Tank Buster will be air active just after the first of the year.

I hope to get the Gee Bee Z completed before the first of January. I've also started an Ag Cat and the Fire Boss. So I'm busy building.

I'm not afraid to fly any of the models I design and build.

Hang in there Doc, I'll have great photos of all these models flying.

What's the point of building if you don't put them in the air.


Thanks for the reply.

nope, legitimate question, you said you fly everything, I was wondering if you flew the flight streak yet, its been a couple years since you finished it and since I know the flight streak to be a great trainer I was hoping you had flown it by now
so quit assuming I am trying to be devious , ,I simply refered to a statement YOU made,

Mark,

Calling me out like a dedicated troll.

Well, I've changed my mind. I don't expect to fly any model I build.

Now what does this decision have to do with anything going on in your life?

I told you years ago to get some professional help for the issue you feel and experience towards me.

Trolling isn't healthy and you display yourself for what you really are when you troll.

I have absolutely no interest in reading anything you Post in any Thread and I don't.

I'm flattered you seem it necessary to troll every Thread or Post I'm in.

Not so sure that is a MIG-3.  Nevertheless, the name doesn't matter.  It's very nicely done with plenty of detail.  Let us know if you have flown, because maybe you have made a stunt winner!

Mark,

All you do is troll. Over five years of it and your still an active Avaiojet troll.

You're the guy that Posted I wasn't liked at RCU and caused the same trouble there that I cause at SH. I'll never forget that lie. It's a shame all that ani-Avaiojet crap has been cleaned up.

But, I've kept a copy of that Post and have plenty more from you and my other trolls.

After the first of the year I'm having my Graphics website redone. I won't have a "Links" page, but I believe I'll have a "Troll" page.

Troll me one more time and your name will be on it with a link to plenty of your dispicable trolling comments.

Instead of spending your time hating another modeler you could be contributing as I do. You say you can paint. Hey! Post stuff. What are you building? Post it.

Now, if you think for one minute I'm kidding about your name being on a "troll list" and links to your trolling comments, think again.

You're not a child, you know exactly what you're doing and saying, especially the way you say it. Not once have you ever gave me kudos.

Troll away, no joke, that or welcome to my troll list.

Floyd,

Thanks for the favorable comments.

The model is far from a stunt winner, it's in at 60 oz possibly a tad more.

So is the ARGO at 58oz. Both are small models. they were good learning experiences though and they are nice to look at. I don't care if they don't do the pattern. They wern't designed to.

I'm hoping the Stuka Tank Buster will come in at around 50oz, possibly less, and it looks like it will. That model has a bit more wing area and could be a good flyer.

The ARGO II I expect to be a good flyer for my first real attempt at a light stunt design.

Floyd, I know how well you build, so your replies are really appreciated.

Thank you for the kind comments.

Charles

Mark,

You should quit when your ahead. You're not playing nice and you will be first on the list.

And Bill, another anti-Avaiojet troll. Don't think I haven't saved your trolls either, in fact as far back as SSW.

     Hello Charles:

     Great work!! I got chest pains and a pain shooting down my left arm when I saw this plane. You are a great artist!

Frank,

You're to kind and thanks for the truthful remarks. 

Kidding, I'm just having a bit of fun.  LL~

Did you see the Stuka Tank Buster? I hope to be back on it at the end of the month. This is a wet month in FL, rains quite a bit and my spray booth is the outdoors.

Frank,

Don't tell anyone, but I just started framing a model of this aircraft. Mums the word.

Thanks for the reply and the kudos.

Charles

Hey Charles,

Just noticed this thread. I have to say WOW.  Exquisite model. Looks like the real thing.  I would like to see it in person.

Hope we can meet up soon.  I know you are working . I've been flying with the boys at the field, but missed last three weeks because of house projects I had to finish.  Again, outstanding work!  ( want me to test fly, LOL )

Charles, I don't think Mark is trolling, what ever that is,  Seems he asked a legitimate question.  I've had friends that could build beautiful planes  that would fly better than what I built, but they had no plans to fly them.  Part of it was health issues and no desire to fly but loved to watch other people fly them.  But, really what happened to the Flite Streak?   
I was always taught to respect my elders, but it keeps getting harder to find one.

Traian,

Funny guy.  LL~ LL~ LL~ You know I love you baby.

Yes, it is outstanding work isn't it.

No, the Mig-3 has not been flown yet. I'm trying to sell it.

I'm selling all of them.

I have a nibble on two models.

Thanks for the reply.
