First off, I'll Post probably my most impressive FG build:
the Business card-sized Piper cub J3 in a bottle

Sorry about the crummy quality of my pic, My only Camera at the moment is the one attached to my phone..
I have a Higher quality Digital camera, but it seems to have disappeared.

Elias,
Can't see. How did you mount it?

I didn't actually mount it...
I hung it from the cap by a Trio of threads going into each wing and through the fuselage.
By the end of next week, I hope to post a finished pic of the FG B17

in all seriousness, after the B-17, I'm going to purchase and try to modify the Nazi X-plane "Salamander" into an A-10 Thunderbolt
They both share similar design features (mainly the big Jet engine[s] on their backs) the only thing I'd really have to scratch-build would be a GAU-8 under its nose.
I'd also have to somehow make a bigger wingspan
Oh Here's a WIP of the B-17

Found my camera, don't know why it was where it was. anyway, Here's the Pic of the B-17 I promised to post by the end of the week (weekend as it were)
Image
I think I may give it a bit more time until I build another FG model.
Bought a few Modelik Kits at a Flea market a few weekends back and boy do they look interesting.
EDIT
For all of you reading, YES, that "crack" in the forward window looks terrible, Its looked worse when I went over the area with a Pin.
