A note from Bob Wetherell in California.

"I thought that you and the guys might enjoy these shots of my new Dehavilland Hornet Moth. It has a 37-inch wingspan, is powered by a .5cc reduction of the Mills 1.3 engine, I think manufactured in Eastern Europe. The model has a traditional balsa and spruce structure, is covered with silk and is finished with Sig dope. I chose the taper-wing version of the Hornet Moth because I like how they look. The original is in a museum in Wetaskiwin, Alberta, Canada. (How did I ever document models before the internet?) The pictures were taken at the Perris, California flying site, just after the first test flight. Minimal adjustment was necessary and it made several successful flights. I’m looking forward to many mornings sport flying this model.
I always enjoy the latest updates to the Maxecuters web site. I hope all is well. Hello to all the guys. Best Regards, Bob Wetherell"

A note from Lindsey Smith in England, Easter Weekend.


" We had a busy day, Communion Service at 0800, then off to our daughter in Bath for a family get together lunch. I went flying at Wallop on Saturday, about 90 people there, but we are all so old! There was a group of full size replica WW1 aircraft there practising for a display, and we had to stop flying while they did their thing, but they were pretty neat. The‘observer’ in the Junkers J 1 was a dummy.
Regards and best wishes from Lindsey and Jane"
