Wings and Wheels Model Spectacular 2017

Postby dominicm » Tue Jul 11, 2017 6:54 pm

Gregg Hayfield was back at Wings and Wheels Model Spectacular with his Monster Pitts Python. It is 85% size of the real Pitts Python and looks awesome in its new scheme. Weighing in at 138 Kg, just under the maximum limit as defined by the CAA of 150Kg. The Pitts is scratch built, that means plans, design, construction and materials are all created by the builder to emulate the full size aircraft and it took Greg 5 years to complete this 7/8th scale biplane. The engine is manufactured by Hirth and is usually mounted in man carrying micro light aircraft. 650 cc flat twin with a 63 inch 3 blade propeller.

Ludo and his family travelled from his home in Belgium to the Wings & Wheels Model Spectacular to demonstrate his giant scale models. This Stearman is powered by a Valach 800cc 7 cylinder radial engine. Awesome sound.
