Cox .010 Spruce Goose - YouTube

Uploaded on 26 Sep 2011 A Hughes "Hercules" powered by EIGHT Cox Tee Dee .010's ! The footage is from the 1998 "S.M.A.L.L. Fly" near Little Rock Arkansas. I highly regret not getting the pilot/builder's name. He had several other fantastic aircraft he scratch-built. I ALSO regret NOT buying a bunch of these little engines back when I could order them new !

Watch the original Goose make its first and only flight with Howard Hughes at the controls.


* Editor's note - Laddie Mikulasko also has created many fantastic multi engined models over the years.

Garage Sale Special-Jemco Vintage Corsair Partial Kit

Corsair kit. An ideal scratch builders project for an Astro 25 or 40, geared or direct drive.. 

 This is what a kit should contain. 

Of course mine is missing a few parts. Like the sheet of full size plans; a few plywood fuselage frames, but  the punched out sheets are there and could be used as a pattern for them. The foam wing cores are also missing and the building jig for holding the frames into their proper location during fuselage building. There are a few extra items included in the box: that wasn't supplied in the kit: a set of Robarts 3 1/2 diamond thread and lettered side walls; a Vortac scale droppable bom plus Vortac bomb racks; a fuel tank; a tub of  K&B microballoons for forming fillets etc. 

The model built form this kit would be 54"ws with 556 sq. in. of wing area and suitable for electric or Nitro power.
