Old kit Super Ringmaster
« on: September 26, 2018, 02:52:16 PM »
Just for the big flyathon for Ringmasters.  OLD Sterling kit, Super Ringmaster, missing parts, now fabricated.  Reminds me of the car Donald Duck drives, pure caricature. D>K LL~

Well I tried to find a picture of my Super Ringmaster.  It was a scratch build using Baxter plans(Now Bob Mears has them).  I hope to get at least a flight on each of my Ringmasters plus variant.   Looks like you are doing good. H^^

Kit was advertised as missing stuff.  So I had to make a TE, LE, main spar, cut three ribs, repair two ribs, replaced the sorry motor mounts, bent wire for the  landing gear, supply the "J" bolts, all of which was no problem and I have done this before on other kits. All part of building older kits.   Now to find some proper wheels, a bell crank ( I have dozens in a box) and see if I can replicate the box art.  So far I have an old McCoy .19 red head set aside as well and on OS .25 FP (which may be too  much power)  for this little thing. I have a few OS LA .20's in the "back room", could use one of those.  All this for a few flights, on one day, soon. Then, on the wall, like all the others. H^^ LL~

Hi Jamie.  I will if it is finished in time. So far things are progressing.   D>K
I need to dig in my closet. I bought a super ringmaster kit from a guy online forever ago.... what i recieved was a box with the "drawings/instructions". 2 different set of ribs. Fuse sides.. some formers.. and bunch of other random balsa. Need to take it out and see whats up with it

Well, this is a typical Sterling kit. Nothing lines up. Lots of cutting, trimming and sanding.  But wing  is installed, covered, doped and fillets in place. Sides of the turtle deck are in.  Now for the top,

stab/elevator, rudder, pants and wheels. Oh yes forgot, I have to paint the darn thing in time for Saturday Ring Master fly in..... It may just fly in clear. LL~ LL~ LL~

Front view.  Rather light in weight as of now. Still needs fuselage covered and painted. Not sure of the scheme, but more likely the box art. H^^
