“RC Scale” column correction
In reading this month’s column
The Don Smith B- 24 is a joint
project between Herman Burton
and myself. In the discussions
between Stan [Alexander] and
myself and the article I sent,
the important fact that it is a
multiyear project with Herman
Burton and me must have been
I just wanted to make this
correction because this is the
most important aspect of the
project. Herman Burton is a
neighbor and friend, and without
his partnership, this plane would
not have been built. He built the
wing, and I built the fuselage.
We spent numerous nights discussing, fitting, planning, disagreeing, and
finally completing the project, and we are even closer friends than before we
started and are proud of our project. Truly, AMA and modeling brought two
people closer together.
Can you please print a correction to this article so that the credit for this
incredible venture is a joint effort between two people, Herman Burton and
Dave Scott’s how-to-master series
Dave Scott is the best RC instructor. I attended his class back in 1993 and I
have never forgotten his lessons. Great instructor, great person, great friend.
