    My First Scratch build

    I started on this a few months back. Never did this before so the learning curve is long. The guys at Composites Canada are a tremendous help.

    Re: My First Scratch build

    Thanks Guys..

    Hey Colin.. Ive included a pic of the color I think I will be going with for the prototype. Should be simple enough for you to cut the vinyl.


    Next was to hot wire the wings, and then everything was covered with 6oz cloth and epoxy from CopositesCanada

    Re: My First Scratch build

    Very cool to see this happen!

    Forgive me if I missed something, but what is it going to be? I thought An F-16 initially,
    but thought I noticed a chine on the fuse, maybe a amphibious plane?
