Scratch Build Profile 3D Foamies

Hi, Please show your scratch built foamies. If you have plans, you can post them for others here. Here is an Extra 300 I built from scratch using top and side images of the real thing. I had to widen the rear fuselage portion in front of the horizontal stab because it was too weak as narrow as it was. This design flew well already but I added a KK clone (HobbyKing Multirotor controller) to help it fly on windy days and it worked great. I will be placing my template on a black background and taking HD photos for anyone interested in building this plane. The best thing to do would be to print it out on graph paper and scale it to what ever size you like. Pics coming soon.

Oh, I also built a 16" wingspan version of this plane as well. It flew pretty squirrelly but it was quite fun.
