"Hello, After a 16 year absence (marriage/kids) I decided to try Free Flight again. I purchased your Victory kit and had a blast building it. Attached are a couple of photos. Hope to test fly this weekend. I plan on getting the Ritz kit next. I have a soft spot for the Old Timer kits. Thanks for putting out some great kits!" John Pate
Al Yunker shows us 1 method for making a removable wing using dowels
and rubber bands. For another method read Dave's
article on using magnets to make a removable wing.
"Here are some photos of one of your Korda Victory kits. Two years ago I built one of your Miss
Canada Seniors and had good luck with it. As a newcomer to rubber powered model building, this was the first plane I built that flew well. Since I had such good results, I decided to build the Korda Victory, which I decided to cover in red and white using Easy Built tissue sprayed with Krylon, which I will try again, since the model weighs in lighter than it would with brushed-on dope. Since I fly only for fun, I omitted the landing gear which doesn’t fare well in the rough terrain my models have to land on." - Tom O’Neal
