More planes for the hanger.

These planes were built by Ray Croucher, a dedicated modeller who ran Boldon flying club for a number of years. Sadly Ray passed away a few years ago, his widow decided that his planes would be better flown and enjoyed by others rather than scrapped.

So here they are to be flown and repaired as required to keep them in the air.

King of the bunch is the BAE Hawk in the unmistakable Red Arrows livery.

It needs a little work on the engine but otherwise looks great.

Next is a rather nice looking Fokke Wulf 190

I think this one will go electric with a 350-400W motor.

Next a classic Wot 4 in rather bright colours. Needs the tail sorting and recovering flies mint! my favourite at the moment.

Check out it's crash history (c:

Excel 2000 high wing trainer. Fuselage needs recovering but flies well.

Next an odd looking plane but looks like a good sport flier. Yet to fly it.

Not sure about this one, there seems to be bits missing or its a glider, should be fun getting this one in the air.

Seaton Sluice here I come with the Zaggi slope soarer!

Finally a glider, and what a beauty! with a 2.85m wingspan I think I will need the Precedent 240 to tow this baby up, I can't wait.

A massive thank you to Ray's son in law Robin and his wife for these, they will be looked after and provide years of fun for me and my son.

It's getting a bit of a squeeze (c:

Remember that old model makers never die, they just change hangers.
