Mr.Sikorsky is my favorite designer. So, I'm volunteer to help you if I can, Murph. :D

I don't have any Sikorsky's beyond planning stage yet. I'm still working on what Chip has requested, the Martin B-10, then the P-82 Twin Mustang.
I might see if he wants the Ilya Muromits(sp?) after that.

Hm, Il'ya (or Ilya - depending on the language) Muromets will be a big model. The wingspan of the top wing is about 30 m (or more?). Why not? :wink:

Well, besides the fact I've been avoiding designing biplanes because I can't even get the things to build right :x

Was that an attempt to save weight and used a droppable undercariage? Looks like it got stuck! :lol:

Must have been the first test flight of the new J version of the BF 109. Designed after Germany ran out of rubber and needed to find alternate materials for landing gear. I'm guessing they used wood or plastic for the landing gear legs.

Is the Cartercopter a jet with an identity crisis or a helicopter with delusions of grandeur?

Fantastic airshow pics! The sound of all those radial and inline piston engines must be amazing! Lucky for the spectators, I'm jealous!
