  1. NASM has the original BLUE short wing in storage, received at the same time as the racer. https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/ipmsairrace/conversations/messages/2810 September 1977 issue of Wings/Airpower magazine . In the 11 page long article written by Walt Boyne titled "Speed Merchant" the story of the racer is told. On page 19 he writes how the plane was transferred in 1975 from California to the NASM in a specially build shipping container. Included were the short wings, which were stored at the Silver Hill restoration center, while the racer with the long wings was put on display in the gallery of flight technology.I think I have read somewhere that at some point NASM crew was thinking of changing the plane back to the short wing configuration. It just wasn't possible anymore as there had been made too many changes to the fuselage/fittings during the the long wing installation.

  3. ok, not jet but rocket powered. Anyway I thought some of you might be interested about this http://www.therpf.com/f11/has-anyone-done-hl-10-lifting-body-54417/index11.html
  4. Photos of the ongoing restoration can be found in these links english text http://www.ilmasotakoulunkilta.fi/IlmaSK/i...id=ContentE9451 finnish http://www.ilmasotakoulunkilta.fi/IlmaSK/i...id=Content01967 dc-2 blog http://www.ilmasotakoulunkilta.fi/IlmaSK/i...p;cid=uusiblogi
  5. You might be interested in some alternative decals and better resin guns http://www.starshipmodeler.com/newshop/ind...;category_id=12 http://www.dlmparts.com/ a few building stories http://www.starshipmodeler.com/b5/rmfury1.htm http://www.internetmodeler.com/1998/octobe...fi/starfury.php http://modelingmadness.com/reviews/misc/scifi/leesf.htm
  6. an excellent book for your project: The New Ryan by Ev Cassagneres "Fascinating account of two of the slickest and most glamorous airplanes of the Golden Age: the Ryan ST (Sport Trainer) and the Ryan SC (Sport Cabin). Chrono-logically organized, thoroughly documented with photos, specs and performance figures, this book is jam-packed with little-known facts and superb photographs. Includes the PT series with Kinner engines." http://www.windcanyonbooks.com/product_inf...products_id=382 Modifying PT-16 from PT-20 / STM is quite easy. Just file away the load carrying longerons in the fuselage. On PT-20 these are on the outside, inside on PT-16
  7. More info of this project can be found here http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=17772 I think there would be more interest in the resin parts of this plane than the promised run of 10. Why not sell the masters to someone who already has a resin kit business ?
  8. first get "Tabletop Machining" book http://www.sherline.com/bookplug.htm some miniature lathes http://www.clisbyminiaturemachines.com/ 250 USD http://www.thecooltool.com/index_e.php beware the Unimat 1 is made of plastic better ones http://www.sherline.com/ ( I got one of their lathes ) http://www.taigtools.com/
  9. One reference is Data Plan 2: The Bristol Bulldog by Alfred Granger 1973 ISBN 0 903456 02 X 20 pages , mostly drawings. Old but not impossible to obtain, one source http://www.antiqbook.co.uk/boox/sol/9658.shtml More recent publication, which I haven't seen myself Crawford. Alex. Bristol Bulldog, Gloster Gauntlet mushroom model publications reviews : http://www.mmpbooks.biz/books/8389450046/8389450046r.htm few photos of a Bulldog in a museum can be seen here http://www.virtualpilots.fi/feature/photor...llinportti2002/ This museum is located about one hour drive from my home
  10. this information I got in October 2003 from IPMS Racing & Record Aircraft SIG ( http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ipmsairrace/ ) ***** EXCLUSIVE HobbyVisions Show Report for Meteor Customers And don't forget the news from Williams Bros and their long awaited Lockheed Sirius kit. "Williams Bros. Inc. Displayed 1/48 Lockheed Sirius test shots with an expected mid-2004 release schedule. This kit will include both floats and normal wheeled landing gear. At this point, decal subjects have not been determined. The model has been engineered so that later Williams Bros. will be able to release the Altair, Orion and Vega, all of which share common parts with the Sirius. No release dates for these later kits is available, and will certainly depend on sales of the Sirius." ****** Unfortunately this kit was never finished and in December 2004 the company ceased all production. New owners relocated the company later to Texas http://www.williamsbrothersmodelproducts.com/ Hope they will someday finish the kit
  11. William Wagner's book "Ryan Broughams and Their Builders" has 3-view of B-5 made by Paul Matt The differences between B1....B5 ( engine, landing gear, tail etc ) are explained in the text. This book is available from http://aviation-heritage.com. This same 3-view can also be found from the same source in three other formats: -book: Paul Matt Scale Airplane Drawings vol 2 -cd-rom: Paul Matt Collection-archive 4 -3-view After writing that, I did some googling and now I know you have a replica of B-1 in your own Yukon Transportation Museum. Try to contact the people who made the replica.
  12. stratosphere models have several B5 kits, although they are not named B5 to avoid copyright http://www.picturetrail.com/gallery/view?p...amp;uid=2335047
  13. Not Scratchbuilders, but Craftworks http://www.craftworks.com/works/works.htm But be warned that it seems this site hasn't been updated for a long, long time.
