Very impressive Soren! Cannot get much bigger than that and still call it a modelairplane eh..

Thanks for posting those nice pictures aswell, thats what I usually look at. It reminds me of back in the days when my club actually had a flying field. When you need to carry it with you on a mountain trip through forrest and up the steep hills to get it in the air the preferred size and weight would be quite different I tell you
