I.m new to scale building but not new to RC flying. I was very active many years ago and flew sport war planes and even pattern planes. One fine winter someone decided that they wanted my planes more than me and stole everything I had from my storage shed. They even put the broken lock back so it looked locked . I didn't go out and replace anything, I had a family so I couldn't afford to replace most so I let life get in the way of the sport. I am now retired/disabled so I have time to get back into flying now. I bought an FMS P-51 and a slow trainer in electric and had fun last summer. I am not liking the electric rout for most of my flying so I am building a Top Flight 1/7 P-51. It isn't going to be as in depth as I see is being done here but if it goes well I will do the larger scale and try my had at the finer details. Back in the day I took my planes to Syracuse state fair grounds show for RC planes and took 2 seconds and 1 3rd place best in show for my planes. I was in the automotive body repair field so painting was no problem. I look forward to reading what everyone is building here.
