1960's Scale models...
« on: January 14, 2021, 01:03:36 AM »
Some photos by my Dad of Scale ships and competitors from the 60's here, Roland Baltes with his twin Me-210 powered with McCoy 19 R/C engines, Keith Trostle's 1/10th Scale Bf-109 at the Thunderbugs contest in Garden Grove, CA in 1967 or '68.

More photos by Dad...
At the 1968 Cal Western contest at Sepulveda Basin this Dyna Jet powered F-84 was a beauty but I don't know who built it and never saw it fly.
Rick Loomis finished this Fokker Dr-1 at the 1968 Olathe Nats and test flew it on a calm evening illuminated by the hangar ramp lights and a huge harvest moon, in which he looped it around!
The Lancaster by Linton Keith was always a hit and a winner at the Nats in 1968, here under attack by Keith Trostle's Focke Wulf TA-152 1/2A Proto Speed model. He later published a Spitfire for the came event.

That Lancaster by Linton Keith won the Nats CL Scale event at least twice.  It was a piece of art.  Turrets turned with good detail, bomb bay doors opened, had good cockpit detail.  I cannot remember if the LG retracted.  Flew very well.
