Nice Job Scott!

Ed Ourada Jr.'s Husker Hog

Powered by an inverted ASP 91 4 stroke w/ 14-4 prop,  TME Simple smoke with copper tubing from a thermocoupler as a pre heaterTop Flight Corsair 60 cowl .  Ed added a top hatch to access the fuel tank. 3 1/4" Williams Brothers Smooth contour wheels with the wheel pants mounted slightly higher (clears the grass on the field with ease).  Covered in "True Red" Monokote, and Lustrecote paint,  piloted by none other than Herbie Husker.  He figured a pig-skin (football) theme for a Hog Bipe wasn't too much of a stretch (Which if you have even only drove through Nebraska shouldn't be a mystery)

Ken Isaac's Hog Bipe


Ken's 3rd bipig,  a straight build from the kit with the exception of a carved turtle deck to make it easier to cover.
The vinyl graphics on the top of the plane he made from a small cutter he bought,  and of course are meant in jest for fellow flyers at the field.

Anthony Hall's Hog Bipe

This was Anthony's 1st kit build.

He modified the rudder to be pull-pull as well as 3/4" wider and gave it more room to swing between the elevators.
Added wire and spring to the gear to strengthen it.
He said he did not like the way the leading edges of the wings were built so I chopped off the ribs flat and
added formed leading edge stock. I then used larger sheeting and wrapped it around the leading edge and sanded to shape.  According to him, it's much stronger and there are no seams to fill.

 It is covered with UltraCote and the wheel pants, gear and headrest are painted with Krylon.  The covering was made by piecing the different colors together and then applying them to the plane as one piece.

Powered by a Thunder Tiger .91 four-stroke swinging an APC 15x4W, and  set up for smoke.
