Good to my promise of my "you-choose" the airliner build it was the Metroliner that won the day so here it is a Double Metroliner build, actually these planes are well under way but I will post one photo a day to keep this build moving along.

I am very grateful for suggestion & ideas etc on ALL my builds here on RCG so please join in!

and don't forget to check out Ethan's amazing SA-227 build as well!

Resin Metroliner

Instead of digging a wooden Metroliner model of of my storage space 800 miles north in PA, I though I'd buy one off Ebay, so I did!

Models help in many ways with any build!

Plans . . . .

Here are the Hand drawn SA-227 plans, I also incorporated the SA-227's shorter wingspan into the 227's plans.

I actually started this build a few months back and just didn't feel like starting another build, but seeing Ethan's great SA-227 Build made me re-think that idea.

This is my last build thread of 2013, no more new ones till 2014.

Thanks Ethan!

I still wished I had started this build after you'd maiden your Metroliner.

The Build begins . . .

1st step is to hot-wire the Nose & tail portions out of 3" block foam.
