I guess the poll shows what I expected

Skyraider and Thunderbolt side by side

So, as I already started I will continue with the Skyraider from this point and start a new thread ( using the days of my vacancies which are left)



So I start a new thread in Warbirds Channel.

Wow. It's coming together really beautifully and impressive. You're a lot better than I thought you were, that's an insult because I thought you really amazing before.

I'd pay for a set of discs, Hansjoerg. I've built a BueckerJungmeister based on your method, and a B25 from your plans. It's still very helpful seeing how you do it exactly.

And I'm busy with hunting

Managed to do the second shell of the fuse and plugged both shells and the Skeleton loosely together... Looks familiar!!!

no video this time for it is the same procedure as the last time - just transferred the spacers to the other side of the baseplate

Harpye could you please give us the link when you take this over to the War Birds channel.

Can't wait for the disks to be made available as I will definitely be getting a set. I have read on the net about a book called "Building with foam" by a forum member that I will also be adding to my collection shortly. It is just so awesome to learn more about BUILDING WITH FOAM keep it up. The ME 109 will be one I have to try from the plans you so kindly mailed me, I love the Spit and P51 but there are so many around so there has to be something to dog fight with LOL.

This is the thread kept in a very compact way ... and I will post both threats in parallel for the beginning!!!

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1295346

If the videos quality on youtube would be good for "educational purposes" I would not burn them on a second or third DVD on larger resolution to keep the effort / price down

As the HD quality of youtube is quite good I would like to get your feedback about this issue!!
