Anchorage House of Hobbies' Pretty Plane

Anchorage House of Hobbies Pretty Plane

This month's winner of the Anchorage House of Hobbies' Pretty Plane contest is Jeff Anderson! This beautiful 'Quaker' was built from a kit that Jeff describes as a few ribs and a box of sticks! The Quaker is a 1937 design and SAM eligble. With a wingspan of 84" this plane only weighs 4lbs 2oz. Power is provided by a PAW 60 diesel spinning a 17x4 APC propellor. The covering is transparent UltraCote. The Trexler wheels are a sweet touch too. Jeff took home a $50 gift certificate from Anchorage House of Hobbies for his excellent craftsmanship!

JBER RC REMAINS CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE! The military implemented a new regulation as of late December 2015 that closes JBER RC field when the base is at threat level FPCON B (which it is currently) or higher. Do not attempt to go out there for any reason until further notice. We will be able to fly on base again when the threat level is lowered or when they change that policy. Base Ops and security has been alerted to not allow anybody to fly out there.
