I can tell you that it takes some real work and a lot of experience to build the bird you're talking about. If you really want some examples, look at Meatbomber's threads and blog. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/member.php?u=29823

How much experience do you have? Have you ever flown before? Are you into building? What's your budget? These are all factors in what to build. Give us some more info so we can help.

Acambo123 you are OK in my books.
BUT
There is still much to be learned, I suggest you start on something more simple than complex airliners. Have you ever built anything RC before? If you show us some pictures or describe what you have done and built then we will have a much easier time helping you out. We need to understand your skill level before offering the correct advice.
I guarantee you, the more we know about you, the more likely you will receive top notch advice and instructions.

Acambo123, this is the worlds largest RC airliner ever built. Some guys crashed it in the California desert a while back. Classic video.

You need UHU por glue to glue the wallfoam, the wallfoam is 2mm expanded polystyrene foam bought from B&Q/Homebase in the United Kingdom. I use cotton buds to apply the glue and tissue to mop up the excess. Imagine a paper cardmodel? Now replace the card with wallfoam and that is how you do it. I print on the wallfoam by means of lamenting a sheet of tissue over the wallfoam with a clothes iron and then cut the excess and feed it through a printer. I use photoshop to edit my plans and resize them. The rest is all your own experience and attempts. check out www.fiddlersgreen.net for some great plans to print out and knowledge to examine.

Now hotwiring......, I would suggest you not attempt these dangerous thoughts without prior correspondence with uncle google.

The card stock models from fiddlersgreen are the base for this build, resizing is necessary for larger scale. That would be THE place to start.

NoBody is posting re sized or original for that matter on these forms. Might have something to do with that pesky copyright infringement law... I doeknow! Maybe I do! I've already looked! None to be found

Electronic, your airliner builds are top notch!

OK, that is a good start. Now, each roll of wallfoam costs less than 4, you only need one 30 metre roll, its enough for dozens of models. You need that UHU por glue too, very good stuff for gluing the EPS type foams. An exacto knife is the most useful cutting instrument for wallfoam. I suggest, since you live in the UK, to look up www.robotbirds.com. They are based just North of London so buying and shipping within the UK makes it helpful to avoid international shipping nonsense. Robotbirds sells EVERYTHING you would need to get started, even that UHU por glue. The have foam, carbon fibre, X-Twins, Miniums, etc pretty much the works. The owner is very friendly and will not hesitate to give you very helpful advice over the phone. You tell him your skill level and what you want to build and he will sort you out with some gear. The prices are not too bad either. www.indoorflyer.co.uk is another place to find some good micro RC hardware from within the UK.
Now, if you could kindly explain what you have built and maybe show us prior examples so that we may have a better understanding of your skill level so we can offer the correct advice.
