Really like that little red and white one. Shoestring? I did a lot of control line, mostly kit or scratch builds back in the early 70s. It was a hoot.

The little red/white plane is called a TD-3,

Those old mechanical gyros are pretty cool, I still remember using them!

I have an old MS Composit Hornet in practically mint condition (except for the canopy) with every single upgrade know to man installed on it. Carbon fiber main blades and all metal rotor head with a gy 401 gyro modified and installed.

It has not flown for a very long time. The last time was at an event up north of Seattle. Then, it was doing fine with loops and rolls.

Liberty once lost, is lost forever.

I had the Apache hyperfly. It actually flew ok, like an airplane.

I think I still have the remnants of a Cox Pt-19 around somewhere too. I still remember my dad starting that 049 in the garage and it was so loud and it scared the crud outta me. I was about 7.

This hobby is like Kryptonite to chicks!

Fantasitic post!

A few years ago I got the itch to re-live the earliest days of my modeling life. I built a Wizard with a Cox Baby Bee. My brother and I could build one of these with a single sheet of 1/4 x 4 x 36" + a few scraps of balsa in an afternoon.

Ahhhh... the balsa dust. The smell of dope and epoxy. The smell of castor. The warm oil on my fingers while twisting the needle. The blur of the trees beyond the model. The tug at the end of a set of lines! I'm 10 years old again!

Might go to the park tomorrow.

Who remembers the Mattel SuperStar? I had so much fun flying this thing when I was a boy! Charging up the NiCd's in the model with a lantern battery!

I learned to fly control line with a Cox PT-19... In 1966. I was 9 years old and still remember the smell of the castor oil and nitro like it was yesterday. My dad bought some Fox "Missile Mist" fuel. Man that little .049 really screamed.
I built just about all of the Goldberg 1/2A kits too... The Lil' Jumpin' Bean, Lil' Satan, Swordsman 18, Stuntman 23, the Little Toot Bipe and of course, the Wizard.

On closer inspection, there are some of the old kits deeper down the list of planes.

I'd like to give a completely correct answer but the problem is, I don't exactly remember which were Goldberg kits! Brodak sells a lot of older kits and of course Sig never stopped making many of the kits we remember from years past.

I built my Lil Wizard from a Brodak kit. Was that a CG model?

Cheers,

Bill
