My First Scratch Build

Hello All,

I am new to the forum, but have been reading and watching for a long time. I worked in the RC industry back when I was in college. I was a technician at ACE RC in the late 80's and early 90's. I have just recently gotten back into the hobby after about a 15 year break, and have been very interested in scratch building.

So here are some photos and a video of my first ever foamie scratch build.
