I like to see those Sopwith Triplane Plans. There was a 1/3 scale version at Rhinebeck this year. It wasn't covered yet but the guy did a beautiful job.

Walt, the plans are from Flying Scale Models. They are plans that Peter Rake drew up. Check his website for more info. Model was featured in Nov 2003 issue. Martin

lol actually you mightve noticed that it looked hard to fly...has almost full right rudder to fly straight, and doesnt like turning left.

had to retire her due to it being so unmanageable.

ill upload the dr1 next...

It still a very nice plane just to site on a shelf would be nice. Yes the Aussies do have nice things over there. I was over there in 85 or 86 getting old for the world roar championships it was great. I was in the military and used military hops to get there only took me three days to get there but it was great being there. I was back in 2000 for GM working on the GTO that we built from on of there cars which slips my mind right know again had a great time went to the outback seen some roos and other weird stuff they have there.

Hi All; I'll be out of touch for about a week and then come back to a very heavy work load. The Dr.1 is ready for final fitting and finish sanding. Probably be a couple of weeks before I have any more build photos. Until then you'll have to keep guessing on the color scheme. All I'll say is that I've never seen it on a model (-:

Mike,
As far as I remember there's a nice 1/6 Starstrutter plan available from Traplet by Dave Hurell.
It's for glow,but could be easily converted to e-power I imagine.
