A330-300

Time to start a new one.
I have always loved the wingspan on the twin engine.
A330 300
Estimated Wing span - 70in
Power plant- 2 spare 64 edf units. On 3s packs.
Nacelles- still deciding between the RR longer nacelles or the PW
Retracts - possible
Weight - "aiming" for between 4-4.5 LBS.

Stand by with updates.

DC10 is in storage in the garage, B727 I bailed on that one before finishing it but I have plans to build it again in a larger scale. I have not had anytime for flying or building.

Do us all a favor Sir and dust off your DC-10, I'd love to see her again!

I'm really looking forward to your new A330 build.

How about A330neo? It's got higher bypass ratio engines, so it'd be easier to fit the fans in scale-sized nacelles.

Doushi, are you building your A330 in the same method as your DC-10 and 727?

Don't rush your project Sir. . . Take your time, find some good plans, then start.

One of my favorite glues, gorilla glue.
After I trim and sand down the nose cone, light weight spackle to fill in the creases from massages.
