Airbus A320


Hi all

After looking for some plans, i found a nice Airbus A320
The A320 structure will be made entirely out of poplar plywood as it is not my intention to fly with it.

Most parts will be cut om my laser cutter.

Some specs:
Width +- 151cm
Length +- 136cm
Scale +- 1/27

From now on i'll be posting my building progress in this thread.

Starting with the fuselage

You say ''it is not your intention to fly with it''. Is this just a static model then?

I have considered this but I do not have the flying skills, I'm more of the building type instead of the flying type.
