Field Trip

Sunday was mostly a bust because of the wind, but we did manage a few flights. There's a picture below of Jerry & Phobi with Heinkel and Jimmie Allen yellowjacket, and of a beautiful bi-plane that someone is sure to identify.

Some of us headed over to Schellville to enjoy the open day and an opportunity to browse the hangar - pics below.

The military plane at the bottom is a Broussard MH 1521. We agreed that it would make a great build. George has subsequently obtained a plan for a peanut version from Bill Hannan, and we think it would make the perfect scale contest build to kick off the 2011 season.

Copies will be available soon - please let us know if you'd like a copy.

What a coincidence. Just last week I picked an issue of Model Builder off the shelf at random. I thought the peanut in that issue (Aug '83) might be worth building. It was the Broussard MH 1521. Cue 'Twilight Zone' theme...

Mike, that is a weird coincidence, but I can see why you and George both had the same idea. Looks like a good scale subject. I imagine myself with one of these at the FAC French Design Mass Launch.

Tom, please make a copy of the plans for me.
