Wanted all to know we lost another lifelong modeler, well known in the scale world. Clancy left this world on Monday. Rest in peace Clancy. You will be missed.

More sad news.
I first met Clancy at Brodaks I forget the year. But the following year through Stuka Stunt we decided to pair up for JYW’s. I brought along my friend Zuriel and Clancy brought his friend Jack. At the time I had no idea who Jack was. 🤣

We had a fun time building the plane and Clancy accidentally stuck Jack with an X-Acto knife. Jack said “ dammit Clancy you did it again”. Jokingly, of course, I ask when Clancy stuck him the first time. Jack said when they were kids Clancy, was playing with a pocket knife and accidentally poked him in the knee.

Clancy built and sold scale handles to the scale community. He was also a master builder. Just do a search here for some of his models.

RIP Clancy.

Clancy was such a delight to talk to, I didn't need for there to be any airplanes of any kind around to enjoy him!  I also have one of his first down the line controls buried somewhere in my shop.  Once I find it I will mount it and put it on my wall!
He was a true gentleman for sure.

Clancy was a good friend of mine. He helped me with his ztronic system I used on my Waco Classic I took to the 2010 scale world championships in Poland. With his help the system work great. His “ z tropic “ system will be installed in the AMA’s national museum in the scale exhibit this year.

Clancy was one of the first to come up with a down the wire design. He his system worked and he sold many of them.  Clancy was a true pioneer in the scale world.  He will be missed.

I flew with Clancy in Greenfield, Indiana, around 1951.  We re-connected in Muncie during the 2004 CLWC.  ....many memories re-hashed...!
