    Arsenal VG-33 C1

    Enough teasing in other threads, now is time to make one dedicated for this one! First, a bit of history of this airplane. In 1937, the French air ministery wanted a light single seat fighter after realising in 1936 during the Spanish civil war that the french aviation wasn't really up to date...

    Roughly 1/10 scale Heinkel 111 : 2.25m (7' 4") wing span

    So a few days ago I started pondering over the concept of building an RC heinkel 111. I've always had a strong fondness for this plane, and found its smooth curves and eliptical wings very aesthetically pleasing. I then thought about building it to the same scale as the FT spitfire, realising...

    Messerschmitt Bf-109 - foamboard build based on Ultramicrobe's mods of FT Spitfire

    This build started as an effort to make a companion for my friend's Spitfire. I found that user Ultramicrobe already made modifications of FT Spitfire plans that make it into Messerschmitt Bf-109 ( article on FliteTest ). Since I'm a novice scratch-builder, I applied Ultramicrobe's...

    36" Fiat CR. 42 Falco

    While I've been waiting on parts for my Hot-wire cutter for my JU-52 project, I've decided to take on a home project- The CR. 42 Falco has been a magnet to my eye for quite some time now, and ever since I built my Brewster Buffalo, I knew I'd want one as its adversary. I followed a very...

    Yak-1 Custom Foamie

    Hello everyone! The FT war-birds inspired me to try creating my own from scratch. I built the ft tiny trainer to re-teach myself to fly (last time was when I was 10, now I'm 25) and once I was confident in my abilities I set off. Why the yak-1? mostly because I think we don't have enough people...

    Another guy joined the forum to milk it for secrets.

    I haven't been "new" for a few years. I have been flying RC off and on, since 2001. I started with balsa gliders, and moved into foamy warbirds. I still have gliders but now they climb up on props, and lipos instead of a spool of line bolted to a car starter. I enjoy building as much as I...

    FT Storch

    Just a couple of pics of my completed winter project. No real deviations to report from the build video. I will say bending the landing gear was a real pain. It took forever and it's still not straight. All in all a fun build. I went with flaperons, leading edge slats and Armée de l'Air...
