p901P901 , I tried to watch the video, just could not stay focused enough!!
If I was half in the bag, maybe!... Or if I lived in Colorado, ????
Well, haven't done a thing on the Scorp since last Sun, just had to do some ground work on the F-18. Interesting what you find out, that you didn't kow about them. Like the size difference between the variants-- A/B , C/D and E/F. And the same applies to the Haoye, KMP and JePe kits. Not that I'm a scale freak, but different kits are suited better to different variants, based on a L/WS ratio. After a little search on Airlines.net. I'll get back to the Scorpion.
With all this weather we have had, extreme cold-- (looks to be -25 tonight), tons of snow-- (already have exceeded our yearly total as of last week--85") and 2 more months of winter to go!! My ambition is not very high, I'm afraid... Still have lots of time to finish this before I even see any grass!!

Well, it's been a few days. For the Moment I've put the F-18 out of my --???? Rather time consuming, but a nice break!!.
I'm not patting myself on the back here; but I find realy hard projects most enjoyabale--and keeps the mind sharp.
Started on the Starfire first, then to the F-86F, then the Scorpion. My current "hardon" it the F-18 At some point in time they shall see airtime-- perhaps not the Starfire, much rather do the F-18.
Now I started on the Starfire in Jan 2012, F-86F Apr 20112--got seriously distracted here! Ran out of major cash for retracts, struts, etc, put on hold.
Developing a build is easy, now comes the Scorpion--really like all the paper work--ie figuring sh&t out! Almost there-- But other than the month I spent in the hospital, I've been working on these for a long time.--geting old!
Don't get me wrong. the Scorpion build will finish--up to the point of flying. Whole nother story
As most of you know, these jets, -scratch built or not, arn't cheap! So you get what you can,when you can--the rest waits. OK, tax rebate time!!
I have enough of a "Stash" to do the Scorpion, and most of the Sabre, BUT I REALLY NEED this F-18! It's called planning ahead.
So, shortly, I shall have the F-18k kit, and retracts. Mid March?
AM I nuts?--Perhaps. .. But after having a stroke last Christmas, (2012) you have no idea of how much time you might have left. Make the most of it, go nuts-- When I first started in RC, mid 80"s , I always wanted a EDF, and I'll be damned, stroke or not , however long it takes. I'll have one!
