Bruce Perry's Two Much

Bruce Perry of Edmonton, Alberta, built this Two Much, designed by Gordan Delaney, a project that took three years to complete. The plane, with a 76-inch wingspan, is powered by two Aero Tigre .36's with Randy Smith tongue mufflers. Fuel is supplied from two 6-oz. clunk tanks. The plane has E-Flite retracts using a Jomard timer. The plane is fully take-apart. Colors are sunflower yellow and dark cherry red; both are metallic. The plane weighs 92 oz. and flies on .021" lines. Rob Duckering photos.

Darrin Bishop's Fokker Triplane

Darrin Bishop of Castle Rock, Wash., scratch built this delightful Fokker Triplane from a Guillows kit plan that he enlarged to a 31-inch wingspan. It's powered by an O.S. .15LA engine and flies well. The airfoil between the wheels is adjustable to vary the lift if needed. The cowling is handmade from wood. Bill Lee photos.
