New in town.

Started around Christmas with a mighty sparrow. Decided I wanted to build a 3D which failed miserably. Unwilling to fail, 2 days ago I started a simple scout. 10 hours later a maiden and decals. Power pack C
Edit- no paint. Black and white reddi-board and printed out the decals, then spray glued them on.

Welcome, and nice build. The Scout is one of my favorites, the first one I was able to fly. I started out (and trashed quickly) four Blue-Babies and six Tiny Trainers. After the Scout came the Simple Cub, which I couldn'f fly. Next was the Spitfire, which flew fine. Low wing planes feel more intuitive to me. Good luck on your new addiction, you've found a fine group of people here.

WELCOME to the forums. This forum has the most helpful and encouraging people I've ever found in any other forum!!
Nice looking build. Just about finished with a 75% Bloody Wonder, then scratch building the DR1 triplane, and waiting for my mighty mini corsair. This is such an addicting way to build. I love foam builds. So used to making balsa planes that took months to build. These foamies don't hurt so bad when they end up being smited by the ground. Already built the mini scout. Several good flights with that until the bell and prop left the scene. Putting a new 2205 on that now. May your flights be long and your landings always soft!!

How did the maiden on the scout go?

Maiden went very well. Initially was tail heavy but this thing is very forgiving. Dropped some clay and some nickels in the nose and it flew great. Just put some beefier gear with 3” tires on it too so that should help.
