Richard Smith Interviews

  • Richard Smith is one of Frank's associates having worked for JASCO and contributed to his yearbooks. Below is an interview I conducted with Richard about his experiences working for JASCO and more specifically his relationship with Frank Zaic. Richard's account provides a fascinating look into Frank Zaic and the evolution of JASCO from a labor of love for Frank to a profitable enterprise run by his sister Christine. As Richard readily admits - these are his recollections - he doesn't claim to be the authoritative source on Frank Zaic. Just one mans account of what it was like to be around Frank back in the day...

Hi everybody,

as already mentioned in RCG, I shall not be able to start my quarter size 1-23 build log before next month. In the meantime I have received the parts kit and I expect to get the latest data set for the 1/4 size plan printout any time. With that available, I shall search for a printing shop which can handle larger pieces of paper... and start the shopping list for the remaining spar and sheeting material purchase.

Just a brief word about myself: I am an electronics engineer by trade, retired, almost 67 years old and in the model airplane hobby since some 56 years... A few years back, by learning about Tom Martin`s activities with scale woodies, I found back to the early days where we built the planes from wood only. I have been concentrating on sailplanes and e-powered sailplanes only since some 25 years and with a good range of flight ready planes, there is enough time and calmness to build a wooden plane - and sneak out of the shop whenever the weather calls for the flying field.
