This is my 120% Hans-Joachim F-16. My build starts around page 250, final paint pics on page 279. It's a big airplane at 120% of his original.
Originally flew on 4s with a SPJ but kept burning motors up. Got some damned heat damage at SEFF in 2008. Flew later with a Scorpion 3020-1200. Flew very nice with it. May go to a little bigger motor, the 3026-890.
She's hanging in the shop, will get her down someday and fix the heat damage and remotor. Nice flier as all of Hans' designs are and looks awesome in the air.

F-100 from beanie's plans. My second F-100. I did modify to an airfoiled wing.
Quick build and mine starts on page #1. This is a great everyday flier.

This is my second MIG-21 built this one off beanie's plans and in his thread starting on page 68, post# 1009. I modded the plans by making a fiberglass fuse and they were enlarged to 1/8th scale. It's a good size plane! This plane has gone through some evolution. First flown with a single SPJ in the tail, then twin SPJ's in wing tanks with the wing changed from flat plate to airfoil. Also a repaint after I got tired of the lackluster silver effort I made at it.
It may get another update with a single Scorpion in the rear, 3026-890. Still trying to decide.

This was my first F-8 Crusader built from fanfold several yrs ago. Not nearly as scale as the one I later built from GGRN's design.

Corsair Nut and I were to do this together, he started the thread and then didn't build it. Young guys get distracted easily.

Just finished a remotor. Scorpion 3026-890 on XPS 4s-5000 30/50C
Rebuilt the rear of the tanks with fins. Also removed the cooling scoops from the tanks.

MIG-21 Fanfold Build

This was my first MIG-21. Lost her on a low roll when I guessed wrong and dumbthumbed it into the ground.

Me-262 Schwalbe

Part Two:https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=313215

This plane almost didn't fly. Had a heck of a time getting it right. Finally it was fly or the dumpster. Glad I kept it, it now flies FANTASTIC! 4 years in the making and TWO build threads because they were so long.

Did a repaint Feb 2012 back to original scheme

F7U-3 Cutlass

Recently remotored the Cutlass with a Scorpion 3020-1200 kv and the performance is INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!!! The climb rate to OOS has to be seen to be believed! But still is a wonderful flier and did not lose any of the beautiful glide.
Top speed is still to TBD because we were afraid to open her up even though I replaced the Hs-55 servos to Hs-82MGs. Those huge elevons need to be respected. But it is easily the fastest plane in my stable. Has to be the best flying and most versatile plane that I have ever built.
Here is video from the Ace in the Hole event in Vegas Oct 2010.
