Very gentle flyer and looks so good too! Maybe a break-though method coming through with construction.

I built a printed paper display model of a Spitty back in the early '70s and liked the results very much.

I think you should edit the thread title. It says "Pinted". I came here thinking we were going to talk about beer :-)

That Spitty looks fantastic!

Very nicely done, Sir! Great flying as well. I would love to hear more about how you put it together, and where the plans came from...

There are many sources of plans. The plans is for a display card model at 1:33 scale. I printed the plans at 1:9 scale and I glue the paper sheets on depron.
This is a source of plans: http://www.bestpapermodels.com/en/ai...sc&order=price

Well it don't understand a word of what's been said on the video but the plane sure does speak for itself. Any photos of how these planes are put together as in what's the inside look like. Now many ribs, struts etc. have you put into them.
I see you have made quite a few of these... https://www.youtube.com/user/mantraro?feature=watch
Are you Romanian ?
