scrubs,
Nice things happen to good people mate. So why the heck I'm getting anything at all is anyone's guess.
I have the parts to build an 18" Sperry Monoplane and Stahlwerk and, unless I do it in foam, I suppose a Nieuport 11 had better be on the cards. Probably a Pup, Tabloid, Strutter and at least 3 others are possibilities too. All will be simple 3 channel models to suit the gear I have - and my flying abilities.

Pete

i find the models i build myself end up lighter than any rtf or kit built that is a similar plane. they might not always fly as good though, but thats part of the fun of a home built model, figuring out all its quirks until you get it to fly right.

Some interesting planes especially the Tabloid. Hopefully Charlie will handle short kits like the SE5.
