Heres my beauty built it all by myself... Not a Aircraft, but a pretty nice custom built by me. Yes I know I look like a noob that would never have any fabrication skills or anything of the sort. But I'm quite the mechanic... Yes sadly this is me in the picture.

Here is mine... I'm going to detail the heck out of my new Kyosho Fw-190, hope all goes well. But this by far is my custom babe. Shhhh, don't tell my wife... I might find it smashed if you do.















Sorry about the fuzzy pics... it's a cheap digital camera. I wanted to show all the detail I made from scratch... so again I apologize for all the pics. I also cut the stock pilots head and put a small Micro-Servo in it... so I can move his head back and forth with a flick of a switch while I taxi, or do that nice slow fly-by.

Also my wife painted the stock pilot to look like the real pilot who flew the original Fokker DVII.

My favourite, a new Seagull Zero, not much on scale, but with a little work can look alright, and my VQ Zero as well. I like Zero's!

Boy, those anti-ARF kit lovers sure don't like this thread!

I have another mistress I forgot to post here until now- that's my Great Planes 60 Fokker Dr1! Finished it last Spring, took me almost a year to rebuild, bash and complete. Did it's maiden last summer and anyone who hasn't seen it already, you can see the build here:

http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_10038870/tm.htm

Video of maiden is in the build thread!

Everyone who loves ARF aircraft, keep on posting your fine aircraft, I'm enjoying the nice aircraft pictures.

Pete
