The Sig 4-star is an enjoyable build and a nice flyer capable of simple aerobics.

My first low wing plane back in the early 90s, great plane. I flew mine so much I had to recover it.

Hodge,




This is one of the Lanier RC kits that I found on line . Lanier RC went out of business about 15 years ago . The kit was new in the box and they were a copy of the Bob Godfrey RC line of kits.


Thanks

I like building but I alsoI buy new ARFs and strip and recover in my own schemes. It keeps it different from everyone elseís and I enjoy doing it. Sometimes Iíll just modify the scheme of an ARF. Here are some that Iíve done. 3DHS Slicks 126Ē & 104Ē, PAU 126Ē Edges and Extra, Pilot 40% Extra 300 and 330 sc, Bill Hempel 50% Pitts Challenger 3, H9 35% Extra 300 , H9 40% Sukhoi, Aeroworks 40% Sukhoi and 35% Extra 260,

Hodge,


I looked at the plans and they only show the former's in the front of the fuselage , like firewall F1 and F2 the rest of the former's in the rear of the fuselage are not shown . The Cowl , Hatch and Turtle deck were ABS Plastic .
I made the Hatch and turtle deck and bought the fiberglass Cowl. The wings are foam that I skinned with 1/16th Balsa and vacuum bagged . Hope this helps.
