I'll be waiting on parts for the Sparky B-52 build so I started on a very large, ~90" ws IL-2 Sturmovik in the Scratchbuilt forum.
Trying to mimic some of the Russian builds that neons Bob has posted info on. Between the two of them, it should keep me busy.

I finally got started on Keith's new B-52. He has already proven it as a glider and now is building a 8 edf prototype.
I'll be building along with him. Keith sent me the plans, all the plastics and foam wing cores. I know, I'm not an EDF guy
but I have a secret weapon. Already have Wade thinking about it. Want to try to use the Dr Mad Thrust 8 blade 30 mm
EDF unit but they are out of stock. Hope HK can get them in before too long.
So here is Keith's proven glider and my start on the fuse.

My build starts slowly on page 6, then picks up steam later.
