I would invite you all to read this article. Nothing Fake. This stuff has been around for nearly 75 years. Ask your dads about it, they will probably have some memories.

Ahhh, gotta love that new-plane smell

I mean yeah, I REALLY shouldn't be spending ANY money on model stuff right now, but I destroyed a plane and I need to have it back. Now. This time in RED

Balsa, thin CA, and the inevitable good-natured profanity.

Plus I've got Knee Deep playing on repeat. Repeat counter is at 43 right now,and before that it hit 67 until I refreshed the page. It has been on ALL DAY today AND yesterday and I'm not sick of it yet. Excellent song to build to

Let's get this party started...

So what do you want to build? Oh yeah, and why is balsa so much cheaper than depron or EPP?

I'm building a replacement for this plane. I wrecked it a few days ago and I must have it back. I'll be going with a more classic "Stik" color scheme (red with Maltese Crosses- think Slow Stick) this time around.



The new version will be better-made. I really did nail the design the first time, but there's always room for improvement

I might be getting one of those soon. It depends on if I sell my 40" edge.
Thanks!

Yup I got $46.02 to help with the plane.
