1/72 Scale BF 109 Pic's + VIDEO !!!!!!

Had some time late last night and today so I decided to finish up the last of my Profile Planes. Here we have a BF 109 Power glides show it to be fairly nice will see how she does tomorrow in the air on it's maiden flight
AUW 2.8 Grams
WS 6"
Plantraco RX, 4 mm motor and Prop
Homemade Actuator
Durabatics foam construction sanded to .018
Details came out very nice You can see the rivets in the pictures tho the Picture doesn't do this justice looks even better in person.

That would be rather difficult unless you do profile planes, as far as i know only 1 person has built a 1/72 model from balsa, balsa is heavier than durobatics and isnt as strong.

They are works of art Joe! I think at think at this point we should lock in a room with all of his tools. Give him a million or so square feet of Duobatics And Mountain Dew IV and let him at it.

LOL Dave I Built a F4U Corsair also I was goint to stop making the profile planes and move on to the full fuse planes then I found a few more profiles I'd like to have and said to myself damnit I can just build both. so I'll be building the profiles as I find others I'd like to have and at the same time building my FF planes they will be my main priority tho.
I think I'm gonna build maybe 4 more WWII and then pretty much all the WWI planes. I'm gonna need alot of durabatics and plantraco gear

Can't wait to see the Corsair!

A Sopwith Pup (Not Camel), Jenny, or Neuiport would be nice. Oh and the SE5a! I'd love to see those come to fruition. Especially the Pup.

I love your models Doom! If you will take a suggestion for another one to do, I would like to suggest a 1/72 P-38 with twin 4mm motors. Actually, I might give that a try myself! It wouldn't be for a while though. I need to save my money for Christmas gifts before I go and buy the Plantraco gear I need. Oh, and I don't have a straight through printer to do a paintjob with. Hmm. Would you be kind enough to print a paint scheme for a 1/72 P-38 on a piece of Durobatics for me? I would give you the scheme I want and I'll pay you to do it.

All4smallrc I would be happy to print it off for you. I am considering the P38 as well I have a good deal of 3views of it and alot of Photos of the plane I think getting the P38 to fly would be the ultimate challange for me I also think it would and can fly givin it has 2 motors pulling the extra weight can be shaved down nicely and the more I think about it the more I wanna try so yes for sure I will be building a P38 in 1/72 scale.

Ill PM you my address to send the sheet of foam to you can do the image of the P38 on a CD and send that as well or just send it via email up to you. I'll get it Printed off and sent back out the same day. No need for payment just add in the cost to return the Foam and cd consider it a gift. And Thanx for your complements
