Building a “Darn Good Airplane”

That is actually the name of this plane. It was a late thirties airplane, the Howard DGA-9.

This is a very small dime scale kit from Easy Built models and yes it will actually fly and fly very well. This is the smallest model plane I have built to date and I must say it has been quite challenging.

It will be tissue and dope covered. And it is contest legal for FAC AMA events I plan to enter in the future.

The cowl I made on the wood lathe is a mod over what they had designed into the build that will improve it’s looks to appear more like the actual airplane.

Actual full sized airplane

Here are some progress pictures of the build thus far.
