Mini Rockwell OV-10 Bronco combat flyer

#1
For my first scratch build i took an old control line plan from aerofred and built a 27.6inch span north American Rockwell OV-10 Bronco out of foamboard.
Step 1 was to download and print the plan using Adobe and the poster setting on the print page. Then tape the pieces together.
