My name is Tony and my interest in aviation started very early. My childhood home, in Fond du Lac Wisconsin, was near the local airport and just a half-hour south of the famed EAA in Oshkosh. During the summers, our front yard was a front-row seat for watching the warbirds return to base after the airshow. When I was just 3 years old, my father and brother built their first RC model and started flying. While I was still too young to learn to fly myself, I always tagged along. I even had some old airplanes and transmitters that were handed down to me to use as toys. Several years later, my father and sister pursued their private pilot licenses. Naturally, I again tagged along as often as I could. When I was about 9 years old, the opportunity finally came for me to start learning to fly RC. That winter I built my first kit and soloed it the following season. I was officially hooked.
I have pursued many different aspects of the hobby including scale models, combat, helicopters, and gliders; just to name a few. I have built over 100 airplanes, most from either kits or scratch. I also have drawn several plans, fulfilling a childhood goal of mine. I offer these plans as free for download in hopes that it will encourage others to build instead of buying an ARF or finished model.
I am always looking forward to the next project or challenge. So take a moment to view my website and follow along with me as I continue to grow in this great hobby.
