I was asked to try my hand at designing the Luscombe Silvaire from a forum friend, @kilroy07 . He explained how he loved and hated this plane. He loved it for the memories he has with his father in it (see below), but he hated the elbow grease required to shine this beaut' up...

WHAT A PLANK - The Foamy WindFreak
Super Freak, Super Freak, it's Windy-Freakin'
This Plank is nearly ALL wing. With an incredibly light loading, once this is in the air, it will spend all day catching thermals.
This is designed as a bungee launch, or towed glider, however, It would be easy to...
The Bird of Time:
If you have seen This video, or one like it:
You may have suddenly been on the hunt for one. When I did, It was out of stock (never to return) ARFs and plans, but no kits.
After a while, I gave up looking and thought... I bet I can make this from Foam Board. This also fit...
An awesome project to do with the kids or just to play around with. Attached is 3mm FB plans, 5mm FB plans will follow and be a bit different though.
EDIT: The fuselage is built out of 2 pieces glued together.

February is FT-Build-Ruary Month!
Hi All, Lets welcome another flying season, ready to go!
I challenge all here to turn February into FT-Build-Ruary
So Many Planes So Little Time:
I, like most folk in this community, have a LONG build list of planes I would LOVE to build. In the last couple...
For the FTFC20 build challenge, I decided that I would like to participate this year with an aircraft of my own. I chose the Spitfire Mk.I because it has always been a favorite of mine and I have always loved the look. This Spitfire is not going to be a normal FT Spitfire though. It has been...
The Remington Bernelli RB-2
I watched this video... (Starting at the plane of interest)
Then was tickled by the flying Camper look to it. (I am gearing up to head out on a camping trip this weekend)

YOU NEED TO BUILD THIS FLYING WING:
This project is a Great Flyer, Quick Build and only 2 sheet!
This Project was inspired by the '20 Flite Test Forum Challenge (FTFC20). Since I have seen the model on Fidder's green, I thought the Burgess-Dunne Flying wing from 1914 is a perfect candidate for...
My entry into this challenge will be a Spad XIII. The initial plans call for a 30in wingspan, and that's what I am going to be doing initially. However I do plan on scaling it up to near a 40in wingspan in line with Ben's PT-17. I usually design a lot of EDFs, so it will be fun to do something...
This the entry of the MARA designed by FoamyDM
The graceful swept curves of this Thermal Soarer are enticing, I am drawn to the unique construction methods employed to build this unique craft.
The craft was designed in 1999 by Markku Tähkäpää, reknown veteran Finnish modeler. but...
@rockyboy Here is the build thread for my FTFC20 submission for the Bellanca Aircruiser C-27A.
I became interested in this plane a few weeks ago when i visited the USAF museum and took a quick picture of a small model on display which caught my eye because of the way the landing gear...
I really love the Gull-wing style design of the Minimoa which is a German Sailplane. They come in many sizes; 104" 99" 72" 50" 35" and 34".
I will base mine on the Minimoa 50 (plans depicted below.)
The Göppingen-gö-3 "Minimoa" is a the famous 1930s German sailplane designed be the team of...
I stumbled across this on outerzone a while back while researching information to try an build an x-wing plane. This challenge is the perfect excuse to get me to get moving on it! I will be targeting C pack electronics and will probably shrink the size from about 40" shown in the picture below...
This is the first forum challenge I will have participated in and I am very excited to get started, but first here is some history of the balsa model!
The balsa kit was pretty small with a wingspan of 24". Designed for rubber powered free flight, or control line with a glow engine, It was built...
