"Here are pictures of my Skokie BA. This plane flies great! The only change I made is balsa wheels with ply core, Magnet to hold wing on and the horizontal stablizer has a spar that goes through the fuselage instead of having them glued to the sides. Wish I made it with a DT." John Majane

"This is the Skokie. It was a fun airplane to build. I did change the stab - on the plans it showed it being 2 piece and just glued to the side of the fuse. We fly in a field that has a lot of stuff to run into and I was afraid that it would not be strong enough so I simply made it one piece and glued it to the top of the fuse. Right now it is powered by 6 strands of 1/8, 20" long. We have only got one flight on it with hand winds but it looks realy good. I think it will work out to be a great flyer plus we really like the outline of this model." - Mike Breen
