Building a new Super 70s plane
« on: July 29, 2019, 01:56:50 PM »
So, I'm considering building a Super 70s plane. I'm waiting to hear of that class will be included at the contests I plan to attend next year.

More later when I get word back. It's going to be cool if I do build it.

So, I will post here as I get started on it. Looking forward to a new project. I'm excited to build a plane for the first time in a long time.

Wheeeee!!!!

I've built a Novi IV before. It's different.

My plan will make Wayne happy. I'm planning to build a Bob Hunt F-105 Thunderchief. Started cutting out the templates last night. I'm already looking over scale paint schemes.

Theres about two or three and a shark mouth , I think . :( One can always use a hypothetical paint scheme .



Like Navy or Marines or N A S A  , or one from a parrallel universe .

Have a great build, Randy!

Here are a couple of photos of my original F-105. These photos were taken by the late Don McGovern.

Later - Bob

Thanks, Bob. Cool pictures. And I found a canopy. Turns out ParkFlyers had one that was really close. Go figure.

And, more progress. Took a bit to get the wing jig set up because I had to machine new chocks. But we made it. LE, TE on the wing finally done. 36 hinge pockets built (what a pain). Will start assembling the wing today. Cool.

Not sure. Electric for sure, but probably a 2826-12 with 5 cell battery and 60am esc. Probably. With this nose, it will be cool without the IC head hanging down. Like all planes, a bunch of work in areas that are not so noticeable then it will come together all at once.

 ;D

More progress.

 Cool, I figured it'd be an electric jobbie.

 I've done quite a bit of searching for color scheme ideas for this one, not much out there other than the camo versions. I don't know if there were ever any bare aluminum ANG versions but if so a nicely detailed Washington ANG scheme would be pretty cool. The T-Bird's scheme seems the obvious choice but that's exactly the problem with it, too obvious and done a million times already.  S?P ;D

I have seen a couple of bare aluminum ones but I have no idea where they were stationed.

They may have just been stripped to be repainted in SEA camouflage.  Only way to go - 2 man Weasel.  Has the sharks teeth and everything.

I suspect the paint scheme with be similar to Bob's original. I've found a couple scale versions I like, too.

We'll see.

This has got to be the least painted plane in history.  Nothing worth duplicating.  It's T-Bird, Flat Gray, Silver or SEA Camouflage .  Such a popular plane that nobody but our Air Force flew it.   Even the prototypes were plane Jane.  Still, the "G" model has a place in my heart.  Lost a lot of good men in that plane.  If you won't do the weasel, do the T-Bird.  It may have been done 1,000 times before but it really stands out in a crowd.  Other than that it is just adding panel lines to the base coat.

You'll come up with something and it will be good.  Keep the pictures coming, I am really curious how you spread out the electric parts.

 I did see some other photos of that one with the red tail too, might be kinda cool. It's one of the few I found with any amount of color.

 Another possibility is just dreaming up your own fictitious (but believeable) scheme. That's what I did a while back with my modified "NAVY" Skyray, with "MN" incorporated on the tail to signify Minnesota...

 https://stunthanger.com/smf/open-forum/'skyray-my-way'-finished-photos/msg21692/#msg21692

 Whatever the decision, I'm confident something cool will come out of the "Powellworks".  y1

Bob said he just sort of put a ton of inkines on the original. Seems there were a ton of panel lines on the original.

And more progress. Tough weekend. Spent most of it working outside. My back is whining at me.

I want Bob to know that I am building exactly according to the plan. So, no molded balsa, no alterations. I broke out some very light balsa (less than 4lb stock) I've been saving for a special occasion.

Trust me, Randy, if electric had been available (and developed to the current state) when I designed the F-105, it would have been electric powered! The thought of how that nose will look without that ugly engine head sticking down is reason enough to build this one as an electric powered model. The fact that it will also enhance the performance way beyond what the glow motor used did is a bonus!

I'm very honored and proud that you chose one of my designs to build for Nostalgia/Super Seventies. I've been seriously thinking about building a Les McDonald-designed Stiletto 660. I always thought that series of models was among the most beautiful of all time. I especially liked the Stiletto 700, but there are no plans available for that one, and the model is long gone, so none can be drawn from it. Very sad.

Later - Bob Hunt

Sub-dorsal rudder looks bigger on the plane than it did on the plans

OK, so far, Wayne.

Here's a couple of pics. Turns out the canopy I was going to use won't work. I'm deciding if I'm going to make one or just use a simulated canopy.

I'm going on vacation this weekend for 2 weeks so this is probably the last update for a bit.

Copped out and did a simulated canopy. Bob will be unhappy. Looks better in person than in the pictures.
