about the time i started to get back in to rc planes i happened upon rcgroups and this thread

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=68004

and it inspired me to a. get planes from fiddlers green and b. build and fly them. i would point out that some people were very inspirational to me, such as Vyceroy a fantastic scratch builder of fg planes and a nice helpful guy. so my first was this cessna 172

my second was the neiuport 17 ww1 french bipe

this plane has a 'build' thread that shows how i did it from start to finish.

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=353853

RCG Is my main hang out and I found FG from a thread there where one of our members built a 8' wing span B17 from a up-scaled card Model that turned out Amazing.
I have recently started building card models and am having fun assembling these tiny models. I think putting together the small card models are honing my skills for the larger foam RC models I build.
I just assembled a Luftwaffe JU-87 Stuka that I am going to upscale the plans for a 50"wing span scratch built foamie.
Image
should be a pretty easy build once I get the right size of the formers I will need for the fuse and wings. working from 3 view plans is pretty simple too.
howver I have to finish the 3 50" WS F4U Corsairs I have on my work bench first
I have a fascination for gull wing WWII War Birds for some reason
I really want to build this before I build the stuka though
Image
I don't know why but I have not found any builders building this bomber
I think it is another one of my Favorite WWII Navy dive Bombers and the Corsair is most definitely my favorite Pacific Navy/Marine fighters so anyway I am going to design and build a 50" ws scale model of the Vought SBU-1 Bomber as my contribution to the Foam RC modeling community. :)
OK Enough of that, I am running off at the mouth now :mrgreen:

Looks like you have a nice plan Mike. I may have seen a video of that big B-17. At least it said it was made from FG plans, and enlarged. I'd really like to get into R/C planes someday. Currently I just have a cheapo R/C/ heli
