While cleaning the shop and storage I came across this 30" I-16 short kit from TDM Models that I had bought years ago. Thought it would be a good one to build for SEFF coming up the end of April.
Instead of using the short kit, I just built it out of foam. I had two sets of plans so that leaves me with a complete kit still. I had the plan enlarged 25% which gives my model a ws of 40".
I just tacked my build on Terry's original thread in the Scale Kit/Scratch Built forum.
Here's a link, it starts on page 27, post #404

And here is the proposed color scheme.

Finished the plane, it is about 42 oz AUW, WL of 21 oz/ft. Has an AXI 2808/20 with 30A esc and 9x3.8 APC prop. This gives a little over 200 watts at full power but pushes the amps a little on the AXI so we won't be doing much full throttle hopefully.
