Our Gloster Meteor is out in the
January 2012 issue of Model Aviation. ALso, we have updated out website
to calculate the actual shipping costs for all of our kits. The USPS
has raised rate several times since we started shipping kits, and
we could no longer absorb the extra cost.
Our 45" Span Waco YMF-5 is scheduled to
appear in the November, 2010 issue of Flying Models magazine. As soon
as this issue hits the news stands, we'll
have short kits available. You will still need to buy the plans
directly from Flying Models
Our Gloster Meteor took 3nd place in
the Jet category at the 2010 Toledo show! Many thanks to Keith Shaw,
Bob Walker, Larry Markey, and Howard Kendall for their help in getting
this project done in time. Stay tuned for the flight reports in
the coming months.
We have update our website with PayPal
buttons to simplify ordering. PDF's of all manuals are available for
download so you can see what you are getting into. Links are on each
kit's page or all links on the download page. Also we have put together
a comprehensive set of Terms and Conditions. The purpose of these is to
protect both us and you when purchasing our kits.
The wait is over,

Please let us know if there are any problems with this new system. As always, we
will happily accept personal checks.
The wait is almost over,

and laser cut parts.
Our little Waco YMF-5 will

Our new LTR-14 Turner
chosen as the best pro-civilian model in the first Scale Model
Build-Off on R/C Groups.com. We'd like to thank all those who
voted for us, it means a lot. You can see the build thread here
The plans are being cleaned up and prepared for publishing.
Turner Special came in a bit heavier than planned, but it does not
appear to hurt the performance. It is a good all around sport plane and
it slows down fine for landings.
Our new 1/12 scale Waco YMF-5
is flying now and it is also being prepared for publishing. The Waco
has turned out to be a very gentle flyer. The slide out
tray works great and makes changing the battery a snap. Final weight
came in at 15oz, and with the AstroFlight Geared 010 and 3S TP1320 Lipo
pack it will fly for over 20 minutes.
The DH-88 Comet short kit
is now available. The plans are available from Model
We have two new projects nearing completion; a 1/12 scale Waco YMF-5

We have just received word
that our de
Havilland DH-88 Comet is scheduled to be published in the April 2007
Model Airplane News. So, your wait is nearing an end. We will have
short kits including laser cut parts and a vacuum formed canopy
available when it hits the news stands.
We are now able to provide the plans to go along with our Hughes H-1
short kit. A new illustrated construction manual will also be included
with all kits.
We have improved our H-1
short kit with
the addition of a new laminated cowl. This greatly reduces the shape
and sanding required. Notches are integrated into the cowl for
hard wood mounting blocks to make installing the firewall a snap.
This will be included in all new kits and is available for
current kit builders for US $10.00 (Includes shipping).
T&J Models has
teamed up with Vinyl
Graphics by Greg
to bring you decals for our model designs.
We have worked with Greg and sent him CAD files of all the call numbers
and markings for the Hughes H-1 Racer and three variants of the DH-88
Comet. Greg uses a high quality, self-adhesive vinyl and they come
ready to apply. Please contact Greg for more details and specify
"T&J Models H-1", "Comet Grosvenor House", "Comet the Green
or "Comet Black Magic" when ordering. These are just the
things to finish off your little piece of history.
It has just been brought
attention that the Hughes H-1 plans being printed by the AMA are
missing the front windshield template. You can download a pdf file with
the missing information here
