Let's get started!

Yay! Let's get started! Going to see if I can get a couple of my build threads moved over here.

How about lets get a list of balsa kit companies going for starters?

And....

Wood suppliers
Short kit cutters (I guess this falls in to what is already suggested)
Cowling, etc suppliers

and anything else I can't think of

Yes. Is it the list of USA companies? Since he has the list already going maybe he could start the sticky?

Also the stuff Ken said. Plus a tool listing would be good. Basically stuff that would help people get started.

After a few months now, it looks like we have a solid forum. The build clinics and contests hopefully helped this forum along. I see 196 different threads and 5,794 posts in just a few month's times. That is pretty good.

This forum lasted long then the other forum I got started. That one was a forum in the classifieds section for items related to building model airplanes like tools, balsa, adhesives or anything needed to build your model airplane. Some folks were pretty excited about it, like we were about this forum, but sadly it didn't last.

It seems it was replaced with a reference to Murocflyers (empty) blog?
