Default How do I start scratch building a new plane?

All:

I've decided I want a model of the plane pictured below. What is the best way to start a project like this? Is there anyone in the NJ area who can help walk me through the steps to creating a new model?

Thank you,

Mark M.

Yes, contact me! (and thanks, Paul.)

The Adam Aircraft "CarbonAero" Slick! You should build it, and I'll be glad to assist in whatever way I can.

Dave Platt recently did a video series on scratch building called "scratch this". Some of the stuff is heavily technical but it really walks you through approach to design, plan layout and building. You might want to consider this.

Thanks for the responses. The nextcraft website has some really good information. I can see that this is going to be quite a ride. The good news is I already have some of the equipment I'll need to make this work.

Special thanks to Mike James.
