Wow, just wow.

At the end of each building session, I bet you don't need tv to chill. Just grab a beer and sit there staring at your t38!

In just 95days, this thread is already up to 62,000 views!

I am amazed at what you are achieving, such a credit.

Between this build, and Ron's big yellow F-18 twin build, I can't wait to see the final products!

Cheers
Steve

Thanks for the words guys...

Gota thank John Morgan for the sheeting tips, Hey John it went on like clock work ..no worries. Did it just like you told me ..worked great.

Another cudos go out to CN and AS for the great wing core cutting. After I cut out the ailerons and flaps I was measuring the center points for the hinges and the wing thicknes along the taper are identical on each wing panel..nice work there wing man.!!

Last time Charlotte saw it, it was a rough shaped fuselage..I have been going to her house the last three months

No paint, I did shoot a test coat of primer awhile back and sanded most of it but there is a trace of it on.

Can I request an outdoor picture next to something like a car, to get some perspective of the size?

Are there any scale competitions for foam based planes?

It seems like all the scale competitions are made for large composites?

There are some foamies that can be really scaled out and made to look good

This is very impressive work

Not sure on the competitions there erh7771..this o'l bird is gona be desert rat.. I envision her like the rest of my fleet, we come back from the lake bed after a hard day of flying with dusty wheels and dusty shoes, the pilot's got a big grin on his face and the plane gets the damp rag wipe down as I self quirtiqe my maneuvers that day...as I mumble to myself I came in a little late on the rudder on that last 4 point, and I am not feeding in enough down on my inverted passes...tomorrow gona work on that slow roll....
