This page has been adopted by Frank Mintz – a wizard in aircraft builds (on the bench)
Welcome to the Southern Eagle Squadron “The Bench.” My name is Frank Mintz and I will be keeping the sprit of model building alive at SES. I am a scale competitor and a member of the AMA and the National Association of Scale Aeromodellers (NASA). I have competed in the AMA Nationals at the International Aeromodelling Center and won my class in 2012. I have competed as a team member at TOP GUN since 2012 supporting David Hayes and Team Bihrle. I have won the Free Flight Craftsmanship award at TOP GUN competing against such notables as Dave Platt and Mike Barbee.
I enjoy the challenge of building model aircraft from plans and I have also designed a few original aircraft which I will share in later postings. We have several modelers who still enjoy building and creating their own masterpieces at SES and I will solicit their input and bring their work to you as well.
