    1/8 scale F-104C

    I've been wanting to build an edf f-104 for a while, and finally broke down and decided to do it. The wingspan is 30" clean, without tip tanks, and is 80" long. It's actually longer than my build table. The nose will be removable for transport. Sadly I couldn't find scale retracts for this size...

    Scaled down FT Explorer

    After some looking for FT planes to build, decided to build a FT Explorer, but considered builing in a smaller size, for example 60%. My question: will it fly with the Power Pack A? Would be awesome if it could.

    Localfiend inspired me to build a build a sea plane with his PBY-5A Catalina design (http://forum.flitetest.com/showthread.php?25375-Mighty-quot-Mini-quot-PBY-5A-Catalina-WWII-Flying-Boat). I considered a Sea Scout or a Bavar-2, but I have always wanted an Icon-A5, so it was an obvious decision...

    First scale build attempt

    This build was inspired by @foamandtape Cargo Commander and the rest of the Flitetest crew.

I'm hoping to...

    Design own decals

    I tried finding a suitable sub-forum for this, and I figured this is the best place to post this question. I'm looking at painting my FT Simple Storch in scale-friendly colors, specifically this: http://gasketstogo.files.wordpress.com/2010/12/4704.jpg...
