As part of my thinking about larger slower planes, I took this down off the shelf.  Mikey gifted me this a few year ago.   While it looks almost Tiger Moth-ish, a few things look a wee bit off. I went on line and  found this Stampe-Vertongen SV.4.

Designed and built in Belgium, there is no reference in any literature of cooperation between DeHaviland and Stampe, yet, except for not having the pointed tail, it sure looks......

Model was covered with fabric and dope, and I didn't spend too much time trying to clean off the sharp edges from the trim colours. Rough paint job will do, and I have the markings on hand.

I 3d printed the 2 fittings on the port side just to add a little detail. Have a Venturi to put on it.

Model needs the cabanes touched up and the gear legs painted black.

DLE 20 is adequate.

Yeah. The sessions at the Eye Clinic this summer got me thinking Greg  Violin Whine. Birthday this month  Pig, getting old, maybe time to slow down a wee bit . 80" wing makes it just about 1/4 scale.

Think it'll be fun. Have to learn to fly with rudder  Plane Cool WEEEEE

Balanced. And the engine has run (after I got the plugs correct - black to black!!)  Wall Bash

A little work required on the top wing install, but otherwise ok 50/50 scale...

Not windy for "normal" stuff, but a wee tad to maiden an 80" biplane weighing 10 or 12 pounds  Cheesy



Will needs some tweeking, but flew fine, although 1/2 throttle into the wind and the darn thing just stopped and hung there  Sad Best landing I've made this year....


It lives to fly again  Smiley

Yup, left too early . Glad it was a good maiden.  Looks good, and look forward to seeing it fly in person.
