Bigger is better and smaller tends to be twichier, you get some half scale monster and that 's probably truer to scale, but the truest scale of all, is full scale! Where does it end! Make your model look nice as possible, deck it out as best you can and then go have fun! But beware Will Robinson, that true Scale bird may just become a hangar queen! By the way, I agree with the guy a couple threads up, a pilotless scale bird is really funny; is it really scale then, that's a good one

Ah, Vince, you've found the malaise of the artist here, haven't you. Our own Fred China (Vancouver BC) is a master craftsman, creates a new museum piece every six months or so (the joys of retirement), and when he shows up at the field with his latest creation, we are all speechless at the magnificence of it.... and then Fred sits down and promptly begins to iterate every single flaw or out-of-scale thing that he should have done a better job on. We all stare at each other in befuddled amazement. Only the owner gets frazzled over such minor, insignificant (and unnoticed) details. It's a neurosis, I tell you.

That's why I always take the easy way out, and avoid modeling my subject after a specific full-scale candidate. That way, I can always beg off by claiming that it's merely a "fanciful" rendition of the real thing. Heh! A piker's way out, I know.

Don - Don't worry about me, I have a big jar of tablets to help me relax. Now back to connecting up the foot pedals on my 1:3.5 scale Weihe
