Giant C-133 Model Update

Hi Guys,

Well, after a trauma filled month, I'm back on the C-133. The first week back consisted of building a fixture to rotate the fuse so that I could install the belly bands.

Belly bands are completed and I'll be installing windows this coming week.

As for the trauma, the Tu-4 pictured in my last update met a terrible death on the first practice flight. I believe #4 quit on a down wind leg and she rolled over and spun in from 200 feet into holding pond located next to the runway. 'Nuf said.  Heart stopping and ugly!

On the bright side, My Chinese AEW Tu-4 was accepted to the National Model Aviation Museum in Muncie, IN.   Pictures attached.

Cheers,

George

Good thing our "full scale" 133 didn't roll over when losing #4! None of us would still be here! :)
