Cool
Show off your naked wood!

I've always just loved the look of an uncovered/unpainted balsa model. There's something neat about seeing the way the bits and pieces have all been fitted together to form an airplane-shaped skeleton. I've even built one or two planes where I get to the covering stage and go "Damn, maybe I should just hang this one up as ceiling art" (haven't gone that far yet).

So who all's got a not-quite-finished plane that you wanna share? Let's see that handiwork

Those jets done in balsa are impressive. The hatch detail of the Cougar is a work of art! Is that an old porsche mid-engine under the tarp?

Nice! There are some pretty sweet builds turning up here

Here's the latest Slipso I've been working on. This is the new-and-improved replacement for the one in my first post (which I wrecked last Saturday). Looks prettier in person...

This is my Zlin 526AS. Scratchbuilt from Sig plans except for the wing. The wing is built-up rather than foam core as is the Sig version.
