So I finally finished up with Sparky's B-52 and am ready to start a big Brewster Buffalo. Seems people either love or hate. I love 'em.
I've lost count on how many I have built so far but this will be the biggest and hopefully very scale.
I'm building off Jerry Bates excellent plans but of course won't follow the balsa/ply build but will do it in a light weight fashion
from foam. This follows up on how I built the IL-2 and I do want to see if I can improve on that build.
To see how lightweight a plane can be built you should check out the wonderful build in Electric Warbirds of ALEZE's.
Link to that here:

He has many methods we can use to improve our models and he shows just how light a large model can be built.

I will start this build thread in the Giant Electric Planes forum. Will post a link shortly. It can be followed there since I will
only update the blog here when some meaningful things happen in the build.
Here's a link to the new build thread:
