Mongster pylon racer - Gordy class
« on: December 19, 2013, 08:48:40 AM »
Well, Gord's suggestion that we try some Formula One pylon racing has it's first, (I think), design started. A biplane of course!
This is a Mong Sport modified for racing by Dallas Christian. He won the Biplane class at Reno in 1969. I have always liked it and Depron is perfect for a quick build.
The basic fuselage is 2mm Depron in a box, with a formed turtledeck to the rear. I carved a form out of balsa and then heat formed it in three steps on a 200 degree oven. It is the first time I've tried this technique but it only took a couple of tries to do it. Here's where its at so far.

I'd better get started too. There are some cool planes in the bipe class.

Here's the making of the Knight Twister for the bipe class that Martin refers to. Got some catching up to do. :-[ Cmon guys. Pick a bipe for your old UM gear. ;D
