Blohm and Voss P.215 just completed. 

Here are some shots of how it turned out.

Here is my Monex Moni.  It's actually more of a Moni vs. the Monex race version.  This build was also mostly from 3-view drawings, photos I found on the web and reduced RC plans.

Another large curving canopy and this was my first attempt at 'chalking' the tissue to get a more opaque white.  It was a pain, but it did make it more white.

Here is my Legti Stratos that I build from 3 view drawings.  I have yet to flight test it but I do have a prop extension built so I can use a full size pusher proper in back of the duct for flying.  The cut down multi-blade prop in the duct produces almost zero thrust.

This was a fun project to build with lots of things to 'figure out'!!

Thanks Brad for sharing the garage shots...brings back memories of my RC days!!!  Nice collection!  I never got to the big big RC birds like yours.  That Gee Bee is quite a project!

Here are a couple of shots of planes hanging in my garage from my RC days (you can see the protective covering of dust -Ha).  The White/Orange tail is an Aquila glider - it was my pride and joy when I made it 39 years ago !!!  Also shown in a Henry Hafke Peashooter, Super Sportster 90 with a modified nose, a Ninja glider w/engine pod, a Fan Trainer and finally a Gee Bee R1 Fuselage built for a Quadra 50 engine.

A Jenny I made.  Not fabulous, but I did successfully get a biplane together.  My son asked for one, so here you go.  Also a group shot of some planes.

Just something fun that has been in the corner of my office at work for years.  I made this about 15 years ago.  I've never run it because you have to have a boat to run your boat (meaning saving it after flipping or engine dying etc.)

Midget Mustang.  I've always liked this plane and I'm fond of racers.  I'm going to make another one of these soon and modify it to be a 'Sundancer' biplane.
