Scale building is an exciting and challenging aspect of R/C modelling. The goal of RCSB is to provide you with as many resources as possible to help you be successful and more informed with your scale radio control projects. No matter if it is your first scale project or you are a scale seasoned builder, you will find RCSB a great resource and community.
During the month of August, Site Supporters and Lifetime Site Supporters who post a helpful post on RCSB will be entered into a drawing for their choice and ANY pilot figure sold (worth up to $200.00US) from WARBIRDPILOTS.COM . Here are the details...
You must be a Site Supporter or Lifetime Site Supporter to be entered into the contest.
A "Helpful Post" means one that answers someone's question, provides a tip, or is generally helpful information in yours or anyone else's thread. "Atta boy's" and "good Job" do not qualify as a helpful post.
Before you know it we will be in another building season here in the Northern Hemisphere! Have you thought about what you will be building this winter? Finishing up a previous project like me or starting a new one? I would love to hear from you what you will be working on this winter so speak up!
I always look forward to every fall to see the new projects hit the building table or bench from you guys. If you are new to the site this year I hope you will consider starting a build thread this building season if you have not already. We can all learn from each other no matter what your skill level is.
For new folks who are just getting into scale building be sure and check out our Tutorials section on the site menu. There are lots of great tutorials and if you are looking for someplace to start be sure and check out Jerry Bates "Building From Plans For The Novice". It's a great introduction to building from plans.
Here is a great walk-around of the famous Lockheed SR-71
"Blackbird". This walk-around
was graciously donated by member scoobiemario. This walk-around contains
35 high resolution images of
this subject with lots of great detail shots.
This is a great walk-around to add to your documentation collection.
