1986

My first attempt at a F3F plane

Nice !

That is a very cool looking plane - looks a whole lot more fun than the current crop of F3Fs

Can we resurrect it with a Quabeck HQW 2.0/8 ? :)

Phil.

Smart! Hard to imagine landings without flaps these days.

Come to think of it, I bet that's not still in one piece...

You've started something now JP. Below is my Sigma fuselage and Eppler 182 wings from 1988.  Looks like I won !

I remember lots and lots of low passes and fly-bys in those days trying to get them down before crow brakes.    :-)   :-)

Nice one JP.  And you’re to blame for getting me into F3F so many years ago, flying stuff like this.
