Ace All Star Biplane

Ace All Star biplane advertisement from 1974 American Aircraft Modeler magazine - Airplanes and RocketsMy Ace All Star biplane was built while I was stationed at Robins Air Force Base, in Warner Robins, Georgia (just south of Macon). Being mostly foam, it built quickly. I put an OS .15 engine up front, and three channels worth of radio into it. The memory of the All Star is not very clear, although I do remember flying it in a field somewhere out on the back 40 (more like back 400 acres). It lost its life during some dumb low-level maneuver, and went down really far away. That involved walking through a lot of tall grass, in Georgia, where snakes and even alligators were not uncommon. I seriously considered just leaving it there, but the cheapness overpowered the chicken-ness in me and I cautiously waded over to it. I snatched it up and made like an F-15 back to where I was standing, figuring that if there was anything in the path, it would have devoured or bitten me on the way in.
