JetPack https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=915424

Star Wars Land Speeder https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=916241

My building has fallen way behind. I am almost done with my Star Destroyer. Next up is the Defiant.

After that i am not sure what i am going to build. Going to have to look through them.

There have been a couple people that have built my designs. A few before i even released prints!!! Overall i have had a great time designing and sharing all these ship with you guys. It is nice to see that some of my thread are Bolded now because of how many views. My Imp SD has over 5000 views and almost 100 replies and the Enterprise has 4600 views and 70 replies. That is great in my book.

I am starting to feel the need to do some non-space designs now too. My Jetpack would probably be considered questionable for a "space vehicle"


Anyhow. I can't wait to get the rest of these built and flown. I hope to see a bunch of you guys building my designs. And i still need to get all my designs put into the Scratchbuilt Plans thread.

Anyhow. Take a gander and enjoy!

It has been a while since i had a blog post. Been very busy with work then I took the Family to Orlando for vacation and to see the "hurricane" What a bunch of HYPE!!!!!

All week all they did every 5 minutes is talk about the hurricane! IT was not much worse than a decent thunderstorm. I will admit that it lasted a lot longer than a regular storm, but as to what you normally think of as a hurricane it was rather uneventful.

But I did get some time to design a new ship. Decided to go with the Battlestar Galactica series. Did a Viper before i went on vacation and a Battlestar! Looks like they will both fly really well.

I finally got a chance to start working on some building too. The B5 Fury was a total disappointment. It was too heavy and the control surfaces were totally ineffective. So i put it on the back burner. I will probably build another one over the winter out of Blue foam instead of the crappy pink stuff. I already know what i am looking to do for design changes.

I found out that the Pink Fanfold is about 1.5x the weight of Dow Protection board. One 2 foot by 4 foot piece of pink is 6.5 oz. a blue is only 4 oz. that is a HUGE difference.

I got my Imperial Star Destroyer started building too. It is going to be a great flyer. Then i will be working on the DS9 Defiant =)

Anyhow, some details on the BSG ships.
