    Keep in mind the models we are discussing here, have a relatively lower wing loading than their full scale counterparts. Leading to a lower stall speed. They need to be dealt with differently. The...

    Not yet. Glassing right now. Should have that done within a week or so. Then primer, panel lines and such. It is essentially at the ARF stage right now. : )

    It seems like in the end it would be easier and cheaper to make molds and just create these complex WW2 models out of fiberglass. Maybe not, but to have to frame all of these airframes out of wood,...
