Well here are a couple of foamies I've done from scratch-either downloaded plans or plans I generated myself from 3 views.

Thanks guys, take a peek in the Warbirds forum and Pusher jet forum for lots of very cool foam builds by guys like J Morgan, GGRN, Hans Joachim and others.

Skysoljah-here the site I got the OV10 from-
http://www.willingtons.com/mymac/Plans_Download.htm
Just scroll down to it, the plans are in alpha order. Its originally made for wood construction but adapting it to foam is really easy. Here the thread I did on it in the Scale forum- forum-http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=467427
My buddy Mike (Helcat here) liked it so much he built one also. But then he went crazy and put a very cool lighting system with strobes, nav and lading lights on it. Its a very smooth flying plane. Mine is powered with 2 long can speed 400's (brushed), my buddy's is powered with 2 BP21's.
I was fortunate to have it photographed and published in the Flying Models report on NEAT. That's where the pic above came from (it helps to have a friend who is an assistant editor!!).

All of them fly very well. The Saab is very quick & aerobatic, the Lagg is very smooth, scale like and handles wind well and the Strumovik is smooth but a bit too fast so I fly it at 1/2 throttle most of time to make it look scale. The Henschel flies very scale like but with 2 BP21's its very fast if I firewall the throttle. Believe it or not, the OV10 & Lagg are the easiest for me to see when flying even on cloudy days. The Saab and Sturmovik kind of disappear or become "dark dots" real fast so I fly them in pretty close so I can see them. Being partially color blind doesn't help either.

Again thanks guys and definitely get the foam dust flying in your shops, its a great material to build with.

Beautiful collection of planes you have built. I like scratchbuilding. Not many of us left I guess. The selection is nice because you have selected to build the less seen models. They are well known but are not sometimes for sale as ARFs. Great work.
Thanks for sharing the talent,
