That's a pretty clean wheelhouse for a racer!
fixnflyr....Yes, yours does. Mother Holiday's fin has a bigger radius on the leading edge curve, and I think it measured 35" from bottom longeron to top of fin post.....Yours may be a tad taller than 35"....
Wasn't Moonshiner #66 a modified Cassutt? I always liked it's fin and rudder. Anyone have any pictures of it?
No, Moonshiner was originally 'Idjets Midget', which was an original, wire braced Formula one design by the late Jack Lowers, and was very similar to the Wittman Little Bonzo.
EAA Rockford 1969
That Cassutt is unusual; it has flaps.
You’re lucky... I don’t have any of my old Rockford photos any more.
That Cassutt was on the cover of Air Progress
Yes, and it is still around, Owned by Dusty Dowd in Kansas. Today the fuselage is all white (was re-covered years ago) .....The wing is still yellow, and it is a very smooth nice wing.
I'm 46 years old, this photo isn't mine
I have this issue framed in my shop where my Cassutt is.
Hows the minimax coming?
If you could, ask that in the MiniMax thread.
Was going to, but havn't seen you over there lately......it will be there in a couple min......
Over on the For Sale Forum I have just posted my Cassutt IIM project for sale: https://www.homebuiltairplanes.com/forums/showthread.php?t=30163
The project was a former Miami Project IIM with the 22" wide fuselage. It has a stock IIIM racer wing. I am moving overseas and cannot finish the project before departing hence i have stopped short of covering the aircraft and installing an engine. Please check out the advert and spread the word to your friends. I am gutted to be selling this machine as it'll make a cracking racer.
I will add myself as an interested party.
If finances and logistics were only leaning a bit more to the favorable side for me, I’d be all over this Cassutt deal. Timing is everything and it’s not on my side right now, darn it!
i don’t think I saw a price... did I miss something?
If that's the same one he raced at Reno many years ago, it's just about the fastest stock square Cassutt there ever was. Something like 225-230 mph lap speeds, just a few places behind Ray Cote and Bob Moeller. The photos in the old Air Racing yearbooks had a picture of his engine which was painted bright yellow.
Do you know if Dusty ever finished his Bearcat project? That was supposed to be his retirement fund if I recall.
Victor Bravo, Dusty's very fast Cassutt was the all-red #5 'Illusion'. His white fuselage/yellow wing Cassutt is the old Southworth Cassutt, which originally had the psychedelic checkerboard fuselage paint. I don't know much about Dusty's warbirds, but he has 5 or 6 Cassutts.....
That's paint??!! Nevermind the layout, just imagine having to tape that off...
