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...

Almost done with this build, no problems through the entire build. I just wish someone had warned me about how difficult the Aluminum colored Monokote was to work with. It doesn't strecth or shrink very well...

Thanks for the heads up on the Monokote David. I'll pass it along. Are there any other choices for silver? You did a fine job despite that issue.

How did our decals perform? They look great!

The decals are hand cut from monokote. Not as nice looking as yours, but my model fund is a bit low at the moment. I ghave all the surfaces rigged and should be ready for some test flights soon...

Cool, have you thought about sending the photos and description to Model Aviation's feature on newly completed builds? It might just get more modelers interested in vintage U.S. sailplanes.
