727-200 kit

Just thought I would start documenting some of this build. What Im attempting to do is convert the 1980's 3d papercraft 727-200 into a doable kit. The reason why I have'nt started the thread until now is because I have to work out the kinks. Its not like a one off, you fix as you go. Anything wrong on the plane has to be changed in the cad. What I did is make the paper kit into a cad sort of digitized it, only I made several changes or am making several changes as I go.

Here is the latest pics on the plane. Im going to go with the scale 50mm fans and see if I can get enough power out of them. The fuse is about 6 ft long.

Thanks DD. If is was'nt going to be a kit it would'nt be so bad but making it a kit is time consuming.

Paul, looking good. How about reserving a channel to have a little D.B. Cooper jumping out the back.
