Hi, Paul:

I had no idea what I was getting into when I subscribed to this org., but
yours is the second "welcome letter" I've received that mentions being
"outnumbered" by the 1/72 enthusiasts. Thank goodness there seems to be
room for us R/C "fly-boys," too! Afterall, it's the history behind the
model that really counts no matter what the size. Thanks for asking about
my "hanger." I was hoping somebody would, since I'm so proud of it. The
pride comes from the fact that each were built from scratch and,
surprisingly, they all fly terrific! Here they are:
DeHavilland DH-4 1/8 ST .40 Fokker Dr-1 1/6 Thunder Tigre .61
Fokker D-VII 1/6 ST .45 Sopwith Camel 1/6 Saito .80
Albatros D-Va 1/6 ST .45 Pfalz D-IIIa 1/6 ST .45
Nieuport XXVII 1/5.5 K&B .61 Halberstadt D-II1/6 K&B .61
Spad S.XIII 1/5 K&B .61

Also, Santa Claus brought me the very rare TopFlight kit of the S.E. 5a
(1/6). So, come March (or earlier) I'll add it to the list (even though it
is a kit.)
Now, what's in your hanger?
