Show and Tell:

Bob Motta brought in an old PICA P-28 1/6 scale plane that he bought at a recent model show.  Bob has refinished the plane with a water base polyurethane paint from Nelson Hobbies.  The plane does not have retractable landing gear.   

Bob has done a great job on the plane.  

Thyer Smyer brought in a plane he designed and built from an old model airplane drawing.  The plane will be covered with poly span.  Poly span is made by Fly-to-Build and is available on the internet.  Thyer also constructed the wheels for the plane.  

At a future meeting he will bring in the equipment he used to build the wheels and put on a demonstration.  

Great job Thyer.
