Done! Well, almost. The wing mounting is fastened with four nylon bolts, two for each half. And because of the pushrods going to the tail I can’t reach the ones at the back. I have to modify it to make it more user friendly with a pin or screw to lock it in place, before I can fly it. But it looks like I wanted it to, it balanced perfectly, and hopefully it’ll still fly like the classic Tiger 2 does. More pictures in the Flickr album.
Topic: Tiger Fli
I’ve had a Phoenix Model Tiger 3 sitting in my attic for a long time.
I’m a fan of the Goldberg Tiger 2 (had two) and I couldn’t resist this one when it was for sale by a fellow club member, unboxed but unbuilt. Problem was, I can’t stand to look at it. It’s a Tiger replica, and to my eyes it looks terrible since it’s not original. So I thought I’d modify it!
By cutting off the turtle deck, adding a proper nose and a new covering, it might look more like a Kwik Fli. The Tiger Fli Project was born.
