Yup that one sure is ,
Mine will be scaled down . not gong that big at all .
I want a practical flyer easy to tranport also easy on the pocket book as for electronics etc EDF's etc
This girl will see her maiden well before my SU will being single EDF vs twins
these plans are litterally Real F 16 plans .
So its not flat wing .
Wing will have spars and ribs in them so when covered she will have proper air foil etc

hi John
the b&w drawings are .50 per sqft so however many you want and how big or small . due to staffing issues the shop is closed till noon today. I'll be in after that if you would like to discuss printing your pdf files.

Well

The Su34 should be done this week end to easy really only the sanding part is the hardest part being i already made a fuse once

I am really excited on the F16 making the fuse ribs etc and skinning it . still need to get more Balsa today anyways heading out shortly to get the ball rolling
Hopefully have some progress pics to show later on
