Default Winter Project Update!

Ok guys, it's that time! In early November we ran a story asking what winter projects our Flyinggiants.com members were building this year. Many replied, and some showed the beginning stages of some really cool projects.

SO... let us see where you are! Let us see all your hard work thus far.
Show us your next masterpiece that is now in the bones, or have you been a maniac and you are simply putting the final touches on your bird.

Come on now, let's see the projects, give everyone a taste of what we may see at Joe Nall this year!

I've been working on my 42% Dalton 260 since mid November, covering is almost done, the tops of the wings are left. Hoping for warmer temps so I can get the painting done. First flight should be at the beginning of April.

Sorry for the picture quality, these were taken with my IPhone....

Me too....

Didn't want just another Chinese ARF and I have limited work space so I decided to go "Old School" and bought a very nice gently used Carden from a master modeler and one of our own FG members. I've spent the last few weeks going through the plane nose to tail with updated equipment and set ups. It should do nicely in the years to come....
