A great model to add to the site would be the C-17. It's a great military cargo jet, plus it would (maybe) set a record for the largest paper model ever if it was a good scale.

I believe the largest model FG offers is the Messerschmidt Me 323 Gigant with a 48" wingspan.

The C-17 poses the same problem as other large cargo planes. The FG format and lack of formers doesn't allow for that large of a fuselage without internal support. It would be pretty floppy. BUT, I would love to see it :mrgreen:
