Looks fantastic Deckape (you're a Brown-shoe Navy man I suspect?)

Udvar- Hazy has one on display... very interesting aircraft.

I like the gear detail... reminds me of my friend Bill who just tinkered with a simular gear design.

Thank you for your reply. yes your right. I am a retired 30 year man Cheif Boatswain mate. On the gulfhawk that is a very promanet feature the landing gear. I even installed the hang crank they used to retract the gear like that of the Wildcat it took 29 revoloutions to retract the gear. I use to watch those old navy movies when i was kid, one of my favorites is flight command they had F3F,s in the movie you can see them takeing off doing a dipsy doodle up and down, now I know the pilot had one hand on the throttle quadrant the joy stick between his knees and cranking up the landing gear. thanks dave

Semper Fi, the marines are top notch most of best friends are Marines a squid like me has a lot of respect for the marines i use to be a riverboat captain I was atched to the 3rd Marine division in vietnam I was stationed on PBR,s thjose were fast fibre glass boats I had two Marine gunners fore and aft gun stations.We were sitting ducks on that river got shot at a lot of times. Chest Puller should have got commended he got a bad deal, He was one tough Barrel chested marine he thought and did a lot for his fellow marines and his beloved corps.

I've always liked the Gulfhawk II. You did a great job.
If you need plans to build another one, I have a few different sets of plans.

Smile Gulfhawk II

Hi all,

The model is truely amazing and gorgeous. I have been collecting data to build a very scale RC with retracts at ~1/6 or 1/7. Looking (lusting really) for any plans out there. I have the Lou Peretti set, but it is not really scale. Be glad to pay for your effort to get them to me.

By the way, Thanks to all for service to our country! My Dad did WWII, Korea and Vietnam as USAF Pilot. I have always been really proud of him.

Thanks,
Jim

PM me your e mail address and I can send you some very detailed scale plans for the Gulfhawk.
I was able to get the main plan to load. I still have a plan sheet with all the interior details.

Beautiful! I always liked the early Grumman retracts. It's part of what attracted me to the recent RB1 build I just finished. I have thought much about an F3F project.

Ahoy Bill
Yes I agree alson thats what sets the gulfhawk apart from a lot of airplanes is the retract that was used on this old bipe. It took 29 cranks to retract the gear. What ever you do dont let the crank handel loose when your lowering the gear there has been cases that landing gear free fall until it was extended and it sheard the locking pin to keep the landing gear from retracting when landing. thanks Bill fr your reply
