Harry Kolberg HK4

Harry Kolberg HK4, originally uploaded by aerowold. Another has-been from my inventory… My dad found this one in his friend Harry Kolbergs basement.

Kyosho Sensation 1400 ARF

Kyosho Sensation 1400 ARF, originally uploaded by aerowold. My planes – The wonderful little Sensation 1400, powered by a Super Tigre G-51 engine.

Mantua model Kosmo 3

Mantua model Kosmo 3, originally uploaded by aerowold. Continuing the My planes series, here’s another box of wood that’s in my collection for safe keeping until time and energy finds me at the same time… A wonderful 1970’s Italian classic. It will be a blast with an O.S 60 engine. Image Gallery: http://www.flickr.com/photos/aerowold/tags/kosmo3/

ModelTech Saphir II, originally uploaded by aerowold. Continuing to add to my list of planes, here’s the big beautiful and oh so smooth flying Saphir II.
