By the way, I am already a customer of yours, I have already bought the Cessna Agwagon C/L from you and I am quite impressed with the quality of your kit so expect more orders from me in the near future along with some custom orders. -Charles Bovalis
Just wanted to drop you a line and let you know that I was very impressed
with the "Super Hots" short kit that you cut out for me. After carefully
looking at the parts I was most impressed with the fact that you made several
very nice enhancements to the parts. Such as, adding alignment tabs on the
ribs so I would not need a wing jig. The extra F5 former also was a great
It became obvious to me you were not just cutting out parts but you were thinking about the building process and how to make building easier and better. Since I too have been building model airplanes (mostly from kits) for a while, I tend to make minor changes myself, to either strengthen and/ot lighten the airframe. Thanks again for a great short kit.
I started the Kit you cut for me ...I'm about 4 days into building and everything is going together just CLICK-CLICK...I will keep in touch and send pix when it is finished ...THANKS FOR A NICE KIT ....Rich Bonnell
Trainermaster Review by Lyman Slack of the Vintage R/C Society.
A friend and I recently ordered short kits of the Trainermaster, the 2007 VR/CS “Model of the Year” from Action Hobbies at Laser Works http://lazer-works.com/list.html. You can order the short kit, the plans, and the canopy. Check with Action for updated package prices at email@example.com.
When the big brown truck delivered the box, it looked like it had been used for airline baggage handler advanced training! Fortunately, the kit materials inside were well packaged and survived intact and in good shape!
The short kit came with rolled plans and the newly minted canopy, which is excellent. These plans bore the name of “Andrews Aircraft Model Company, a Division of Great Planes Model Manufacturing Company”. Good friend John Castronover has an original kit; we compared these plans to his from the original AAMCO kit; they are virtually identical except for some minor text changes.
The parts pack has over a dozen sheets of laser-cut parts (plus a bag of smaller ply parts such as dihedral braces). The pack was neatly arranged on a stiff piece of cardboard and then shrink-wrapped. It was noted the ribs have tabs to assure straight building. A few of the parts were checked against the plans; they are right-on! Wood quality is great. All you will need is stock strip and sheet wood, plus hardware.
As a side-bar, Charlie Reich loaned me his original AAMCO decals. They have been scanned and they, as well as the unique fuselage “Trainermaster” liver as shown on the box photos, will soon be sent to Denny out at Cajun R/C http://www.cajunrc.com/ Though not ready yet, Denny will have them available soon. By the way, when I talked to Denny, he said he remembered the Trainermaster well; seems he flew one in his first pattern contest, circa 1969. He recalled he had a Merco .49 with dual plugs up front! It looks to me that this will be a great model to have in our collection of every-day fly-for-fun models.
--Cheers, Lyman Slack
(Our Note: We always pack our orders with extra protection just in case a little rough and tumble happens with the shipping, such as this.)
The canopies arrived the day before yesterday. The new canopy looks better than the original. Thanks.
Attached are several pictures of my trainermaster from your short kit. The parts fit real well and I am satisfied with the product. The pictures are not high resolution to allow faster web transfer. I can send you a CD with higher resolution if you like. I have about 35 models that fit the vintage era as defined by the Vintage Radio Control Society.
The trainermaster has not been flown as of today. I am waiting for some favorable weather. It has been raining, damp and quite cool. Not exactly reasonable conditions for a first flight. I plan to take the model to the Spring Hill Vintage RC reunion in early March. I think you are aware the trainermaster is the VR/CS model of the year and it appears a number of them are being built.
