R/C Airplanes are something that I will be expanding in this website. This first part of the section is about the first model airplane I have gotten. It's a relatively inexpensive one and I have put it together and flown it. I have some instructions, tips and hints for you about the hobby of model airplanes and I also have a video.
Model Airplane flying is an interesting hobby that a lot of people would like to pursue but tend to stay away from. There are some obstacles to the hobby including finding a suitable place to fly them and the expense of them.
This first Model airplane project solves both these problems. It is inexpensive and doesn't require a lot of room to fly it. Any little league baseball field is big enough for this plane.
The Giant Jug is Here! This is the 1/5 P-47D Thunderbolt "Gold Giant Scale Edition" Airplane Kit. This was modeled after the P-47D-30-RA attached to the 366th Fighter Squadron, 358th Fighter Group, USAAF, Tour, France, 1944.
