And I thought I was fast!!?!
Great, I've been waiting for the Vamp for sometime now.
It is a beaut!
I flew my Trotskiy fw-190 outside the office this morning. I made it full size out of cardstock (I usually use bond paper) with a wingspar and a dime in the nose.
It flies like one of those whitewings planes! I think the weight helps outside.
Mr Trotskiy has released an updated version to the Vampire (ver 14),
The one he released the other day was version 13.
Mr. Trotskiy has released the Russian I-16 Rata today.

ok ... this is buggin me for a while.
how does one pronounce the name?
I think it is Trot- Skee.
But I've been wrong before. :roll:
And you all thought this post would mean a new one was up now that I have you attention....
Could someone please outline how they get these darn things to fly well? Granted I only made one - the vampire but it sure doesnt seem like it will fly well as is. Does it need weight somewhere? and how do you anchor it if so (and where)? Also for those of you that have made many, what weight paper leads to the best flier?
you freindly neighborhood questioner :grin:
They all really fly????!!!!
I started building them a few years ago with bond paper but now use #65 cardstock. I need to post some pics but i make a tapered wingspar out of the beechwood sticks from starbucks and mold a knife edged wing with a bit of undercamber. add weight in the spinners(I use solder and elmers). He overprints some of his parts but if you line up the leading edges you can trim the trailing edges.
This is a repost of this picture
Great, thanks! Not sure what undercamber is but i will figure it out! Great idea for the wingspars. I assume a knife edge wing means the leading edge of the wing is a sharp fold and not rounded right?
Mig3 is up!

Trotskiy has the Spitfire XXII/XXIV listed, but as we are now into Russia, it could take months to get back to the British planes :-(
These models are fun
Take care all
