The Pitts S-2B from Kingcraft

The Pitts S-2B from Kingcraft

The Pitts S-2B from Kingcraft is an ARF model airframe in an all wood construction using balsa and plywood. It comes with a painted lightweight fiberglass cowling. If you come from a builder background, you will appreciate the design details and the ultra scale dual cockpit with instrument panels which resemble that of the full-scale Pitts S-2B. The manufacturing level and quality of this Pitts ARF is impressive, most of the woodwork is done by hand and not by machine. When I received my kit from HobbyKing, it came in a designer box with all parts well packaged. You should not judge the content by its cover, but it looked good to me and I was ready to get started when I saw the box and content. Each part was packaged very well and no part was found to be damaged. Even the box it came in was structurally strong. The Instruction Manual is well thought out and can help you put the plane together in a few evenings. There were a few things I chose to do a little different and I am sharing with you as follows.

Warbirds over Delaware Open for Business

I just spent the day enjoying wonderful weather, great friendly people and some pretty spectacular airplanes.  Anybody in range should drop whatever they are doing and get to Lums Pond to see this event.  This is a family friendly environment with good food provided by a local Scout Troup.  Wanted to share some photos to share the feel of what is going on- biplanes, triplanes, 3 scale warthog jets flying together- something for everyone.

Greetings Scale fans

This is the first “blog” I have attempted, so if I seem a little shaky…stay with me….hopefully I will get better.  I just returned from Top Gun 2015,  great meet…weather was perfect.  Believe me, that is a big contrast from last year.  Somewhere in the neighborhood of 115 total entries in several classes.  I believe there were three of us from District IV.  Larry Botsford, John Welcome and myself.  As usual, there were some really nice models present.  I strongly suggest if you have an interest in scale, try to attend this event if you possible can. I will try to post again in the next few days and tell a little about myself and my modeling background.  Let us hear from you as...
