    Old Dog Flying got a reaction from MARU5137 in Review: Robin Koh 1/32 de Havilland DHC-1 Chipmunk   
    I've flown lots of hours in the Chipmunk as well as instructed on them and except for that engine, it is a delight to fly.  I also spent nearly 3 years wrenching the  thing and  the engine was its weakest point..  Hopefully the info that I sent will be of use in seeing a 1:32 model.

    For all you North American Chipmunk lovers, the drawings and  photos from my collection are in the mail to Robin and hopefully he will be able to produce a good Canadian built Chipmunk model..  Unfortunately I was not able to obtain photos of the exhaust system but I am working on it.

    Robin:  I have a 3 view drawing of the Chipmunk although the canopy shown is not quite right, and some good side view photos showing the canopy curvature and tech drawings of the front and rear instrument panels.

    Richard:  Sorry to be so long in responding about the Mustang kit but computer problems and health situation have caused the delay.  Apparently the guy that I had bought the kit from had started painting and test fitting bits and cutting sprue.  The box has fallen apart and is in no shape to ship.  It is really an ugly mess!

    Hi Richard.  I have a 1/24 scale Mustang in the stash and it is yours if you want to do another.  Very nice work by the way!

    Once again the Master Plastic Manipulator has produced a winner!  The winters at Rivers, Manitoba...-40*F with a 40 knot wind..would freeze the balls off a brass monkey.
     
    The last statement has a true story behind it

    Welcome back Richard!  You"ve done a beautiful job on the Mustang.  My modelling days are over as I seemed to have P...d-off Mother Nature and now all I can do is watch the progress of others.  I.ve got another of the original Airfix kits if you need.

    Harry Hardy, the pilot of Pulverizer IV would love to see this one.  A few years ago I built the 1;48 version and Harry signed the underside of the wing.

    Beautiful work Brian.  This is quite similar but more detailed than my AirShow Models Extra 300 and 300L ..particularly that Lycoming 540.  Being a wrench twister from away back,..the tube structure and the pitch and mixture controls are really oversized...But all of it looks great! 
     
    I'm not building models any more due to loss of vision but I still enjoy trying to see work like yours.
