    Bell X-1 Model Rocket

    I have always been intrigued by this aircraft. To think Chuck Yeager strapped himself (with busted ribs) into a rocket powered, bullet shaped glider, that was then dropped from a B-29 over a desolate region of the United States to attempt to break the sound barrier in level flight in 1947 and...

    Foam Board Stearman Scratch Build- Plans Coming Soon!

    So I have always been around the real Stearman because my grandfather restores and flies them.

    Help! 4 TAIL SURFACE/SERVO EDF SR-71 DTFB?

    Anyone attempt it? I have a Testors hard plastic model to build for me other half (The Black Bird is her baby!). Suddenly in my mind I saw the long body and integrated wings and tall rudders of this bird in brown foam board. But not two, but two EDF's in each long engine pod. 1. How do you...
