"Attached are photos of my recently completed Jimmie Allen Skokie.
It was fun and easy to assemble. Haven't flown it yet, but plan to
soon. I will also be purchasing another model from you for a winter
project." - Richard Lodge
"Just finished my Jimmie Allen Skokie Cabin model. Great laser cut kit. Initial glide tests in the basement look promising, but won't be able to fly it outside until spring." - Dave Hable
"Here are my Skokie and a BA Parasol done up as a French fighter." - Lindsey Smith
"Here are a few photos of my Skokie. It has a pop-up tail dethermalizer, balsa prop and balsa wheels. For the test flight I used 3 loops of 1/8 rubber." - Paul Kramosil
"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
"Really fun to build. Thanks for your help. You do a great job." - Bob Sowder
