Biplane Murphy 07-31-2007 03:38 AM

WWI Ace 07-31-2007 11:48 PM

Hey Murph and Martin!! Check out this guys video of the 35"ws Aerodromerc Fokker tripe he built!! The site is http://www.j-f.cz/Modely/Fokker.html if ya wanna see it. The videos are at the top right. He did a great job and it flies very well! Steve.

Fokker Dri
Notice the size of the rudder (standard) Boys and the way it flys so well with it! Point made! Martin

Biplane Murphy 08-01-2007 02:21 AM

Hi Martin.....Are you saying you don't like a 3-D size rudder on your
WW1 tripe?.....hehehe

Nice video....thanks steve


WWI Ace 08-01-2007 02:59 AM

I figured you guys would like that!! That is the kit I have that I will build the J. Jacobs tripe out of. Okay Martin do ya believe me now about not needin' the HUGE rudder? I told ya it flies fine with it scale size! You need to learn to listen to us Texicans!!! Steve.

WWI Ace 08-01-2007 03:35 AM

Hey Martin! Do you see where I put my little tripe on the avatar? Need to get new pics of it there! Steve.

Biplane Murphy 08-01-2007 03:37 AM

But does it have a scale rudder?:)

WWI Ace 08-01-2007 03:39 AM

Actually it does Murph! There are bigger pics of its bones in the Gallery. See Martin, I BUILD my planes!! ARF is a sound an angry dog makes!! Ha ha!!! Steve.

Biplane Murphy 08-01-2007 03:47 AM

So this is the one you are working on now?
Saw the gallery photo...Looks great!!!
That video had a 35" one.....do they make 2 sizes of kits?


WWI Ace 08-01-2007 06:21 PM

Yes Murph they make three sizes actually! A 23"ws, 35"ws, and like a 46"ws. If you wanna look 'em up they're at www.aerodromerc.com website. The 23" and 35" seem to build up almost identically. The littlest one comes with all the wood if I remember right and is fairly inexpensive. Check 'em out!!! The pics are of the smallest one. Steve.

Biplane Murphy 08-01-2007 07:04 PM

Hi Steve...It looks pretty cool. Have you started covering her yet?

WWI Ace 08-02-2007 01:33 AM

Yeah I've covered it with Litefilm, painted it sky blue, drybrushed it with OD Green, then did a thin wash with a light leaf green. Looking okay so far!! Steve.

Biplane Murphy 08-02-2007 01:36 AM

That's right....I forgot you already posted that.....:)

WWI Ace 08-02-2007 01:45 AM

Hey Martin!! What color is the tripe on my Avatar?? Ha ha!!! Steve.

You Knucklehead!
You couldn't wait to do it to me could you????? I am definately going to beat you! RED Indeed! You Texicans have no imagination! I guess it worked!! I'm seeing red right now!! Martin

Biplane Murphy 08-02-2007 05:21 AM

Hi Martin......Have you started your GP Tripe yet?

WWI Ace 08-02-2007 06:23 PM

You asked for it!!! Ha ha!! Did ya notice its big rudder? EVERYTHING is bigger in Texas!!! Ha ha!! It really is a nice flying plane. When it dies it will be the last of the red tripes. Kinda sad but it will open space in the hangar for a new plane. Maybe a Ben Buckle Fokker DVIII, or a 35"ws Fokker tripe, or a Sopwith tripe, or a DVII, or......................... Man, the possibilities are almost endless!!! Steve.

scalercflyer 08-03-2007 01:10 AM

Thank God there were no RED Sopwiths! Of course you Texicans are color blind..... You probably think all WWI airplanes are supposed to be red! Martin

Biplane Murphy 08-03-2007 01:44 AM

Hmmmmmmmm....Red Sopwith Tripe......I like it:Q

That's a brilliant idea Martin....:)

scalercflyer 08-03-2007 01:58 AM

In my grave
Both of Guys are going to put me in my grave yet! Martin

Biplane Murphy 08-03-2007 02:03 AM

Martin....Are you saying you've never heard of that famous ace...
"THE RED EARL OF WINDSOR"?..........:<

WWI Ace 08-03-2007 02:09 AM

Just ordered two 1/8th Spandau machine gun kits from Wright RC. Need 'em for the next tripe!! They have a good review on them at www.rcgroups.com if ya wanna see 'em Murph. They're six bucks apiece but worth every penny!! Martin can tell ya how good they are because he's a friend of the manufacturer. His reputation precedes him!! Steve.
