Tommy Meyers Little Toot " Lil Toot"

Tommy Meyers Little Toot " Lil Toot"

Well I picked my Winter RC project. I bought this at an Auction at the begin of the year. After doing some digging around and found it was a Tommy Meyer's Little Toot " Lil TOOT " There not much info out there on this unless I want to buy the full scale Kit planes and booklets for $300.00. I don't not feel like build a full scale plane at this time. I have no plane to keep it.

I mocked up this G3,5 one in a hour just to see how it would look. Still need a better shot of the cowling. Hopefully I get both finished this winter.

Hehe, one of my long time buds has a full scale Little Toot. Tommy Meyers Jr. and he have put together three or four full scale Toots. Let me know what you are looking for and I will go see him.

I guess Meyer Jr does not like to get his hair messed up. The inclosed one in the picture above is his made over of his father plane.

Ya it been driving me crazy, Every time I go to my wood rack to get wood for some antique doors I'm rebuilding, I had to move this biplane out of the way. So as I flipping through the Nov issue of Model Aviation Mag, there on the page was an add for scale documentation and Boom Badda Bing. A small add and a picture of the " Lil Toot ". I have never seen this plane before so I looked it up. Great Now I know what model I bought for $35.00

I got a few more hours in to the model. Still only 6.2 k so far. I need to do a cockpit and detail the tail and map it.

If any one would like to play with it while I add the detail here it is. It can not be painted yet. But it is fling pretty good. I have not flow a biplane this big so I'm just guessing on the physics.

Enjoy

Art work for the plane.

Humm

What do you guys and gals thing. Maybe some artwork for the side of the plane. I don't want to use the little toot tub boat or the Pop Eye toon figure like on some of the real aircraft. I might change the dog. Place his head on the ground and his paws over his head.

ok

I'm just a bit over 10K polyes so more detail is planed.

I finished up the head set and borrowed a head of a model a friend loaned me. Still waiting to hear from him if he will allow me to use it in this manner. I maid my own just in case. I have him set up to move on all three axis While the control surfaces move.
