I realized last night I have been in this hobby about 30 weeks, and I have built way more than 30 planes (with all the replacements...hahahaha)...
and I've already built 4 planes this year... Super bee, Tiny Trainer (as a glider), P-38, and my Toy Hauler...So.....
My goal is to build 1 plane a week this year...52 builds...
Today starts week 5, and I'm building the Mini F-22 after work...

Here are pics of what I've built so far, just to catch up!

Wow, that's very ambitious, I wish you good luck!!
Are you going to do just ft designs or some community designs as well?

I've got most of the FT planes I want, so I'll rebuild some of those, I like to mess around and design my own, so I'll do that, any new FT master's series, (I have a Spitfire on Pre-order), and once a month I build a plane at the airfield as a demo, so I do something simple to give away...I build pretty fast, not super pretty! hahahaha...I don't think it will be a problem...and should be lots of fun!

That is great goal for the year! From the thread title I thought you were going to make a playing card themed plane ♠️♥️♣️♦️😆. I guess you will have a deck of planes at the end of this, time for sky poker?

DUUUUUUUDE! That is a great Idea...I'll build minis, mid-sized and some monster planes, and take the pics and turn them into "playing cards"
hahahahahaha
