Great site!
Even if I couldn't get DC-3 to download
(Just the big one, 8x10 works.)

Now I'll have to look for a P-38 to show up.
Thanks for the hard work.

My 3 favorite full size planes.
U-2
C-5
P-38

I don't do ducted fans so....
If you put a flyable P-38, I'm going to have to re-arrange my build/repair schedule!
Dramatically.

The P-38 retracts at the 48" scale are an issue. Can't really find the right ones. These one might work? Or you could just go with no retracts and hand launch. Nerdnic has a P-38 very nice one, I will try to stick to more foam board, I could go with fixed nose gear not sure if it will work on the ground.

Happened to stumble across your web site, the searched here and found this thread!

Dumb question, maybe.

What/How do you transfer the downloaded plans onto paper or the foam board?

Thinking if you had full scale plans, you would just cut them out and place on the foam as a template to cut from?

Cheers

As crazy as it sounds , guys will print out "tiled" plans on their own printers.
Then ALIGN AND Paste OR TAPE them all together .
Then cut those out and transfer THOSE templates to foam,
and then cut out the foam parts by hand.

Unless they can goto a Large Format Printer, either at work or Kinkos et al,
Then Cut those out and transfer to Foam for further hand cutting of foam .

When I got to "Foamys", back in 2005, I realized that this was totally ludicrous and not much of a savings unless "Dad" was paying for Ink cartridges and paper.
I totally understand saving money and being on a budget, but, this method just pushed my buttons.

I happened to have a CNC machine left over from a business sale and decided to try using it to cut foam.
Several tests and models of simple cruciform Flat Foamys were made then I offered my capability to modelers here on RCG.
I'm still at it to this day :-)
I have NEVER printed plans on paper or cut out foamy parts by hand.

Anyway that's my story.

Many yrs ago I flew in Gilbert and Apache J with guys like Jim Wagner.
He does Laser CNC in your local area.
