Gary, thanks for the plans and article.   Still have my plans I bought off Howard the year he won the NATS.   He was on that year.    H^^

Thanks much for the work on the plans and making them available,
Howard do you have any opinion on a foam Nemesis? ever see or fly one? I was curious given the other combat ships that work really well in foam

I never thought of that.  Foam kinda invited tapered wings and longer span.

Having built a foam wing or two, a foam Nemesis would probably either be too heavy(solid foam) or too weak(hollowed panels.  The wing barely has room for the bellcrank, so construction would be difficult.  The bladder tube hole would be difficult to cut.   It might be a bit faster to build since you don't have as many parts to cut and fit.

Give it a try and let us know.

Well, my flying partner and I sorta-kinda developed and campaigned a "foam Nemesis" which we first flew at the 1972 NATS.  But like Howard said, foam lent itself to longer spans and tapered wings.  We used the basic Nemesis center-section construction and airfoils and added tapered outer panels to bring the span up to 42".  The airplane was fairly well received on the west coast and one of the juniors (Joe Kall) won the junior NATS with it in 1975. Of course Joe is probably about 50 years old now. We really didn't promote the design, and it was never published, but it was called the Shrika II. The 1.0 version was not structurally sound as we had not figured out how to hold an engine on to a foam wing at that point.

I still have one of these I built back in the day because the new Fox Combat Special was blowing the wings off my Sneakers. Silk has rotted off but I built it with epoxy and the optional leading edge stiffener so all it needs is new covering a hard pressure tank new lead outs and I can fly it again.

Last time I flew it was a contest for most loops in one minute. They stopped counting at 120, I won by allot.

Is there any reason not to build from a kit, if you have one?  Are the kits considered to be too ________(fill in the blank) to build?

Thanks,
Jim

Fast Richard's kits were pretty good.  Top Flite cut the ribs very accurately.  I'd bet Phil Cartier's kits are good, too.  I had one of Phil's kits, but I don't think I looked inside.  I gave it to Derek Moran for making me some lovely control horns.

       I built my three Nemesis II's from the AAM Magazine plans.....used mostly Super Tigre plain bearing combat engines.  Still have one Nemesis II kit in the shop......I never built one from a kit but you do have full sized plans and the wood looks very good.  The planes built from AAM PLANS flew excellent.  Build one and have fun........but make sure that the motor mount is super strong.  I had a Tigre G-21 .35 take off and go on its own from the first Nemesis that I built.     D>K     H^^

The biggest change I made from the plans was to machine the motor mount  out of a sheet of maple.  The motor mount should be able to be recycled when the rest of the model dies.

I always fibre glassed the engine pod to the wing center section on my combat planes when I could fly combat. D>K
