Well, I am back to the drawing board after some weeks of recovery from my Hospital gig. The sketches shown are for a 3 plane fleet of WW2 fighters Plan Set plus a later set of plans for a souped up Model A 4-door sedan Power Wagon the scale of the Hill Billy Hot Rods that will include the sedan, a roadster and a panel wagon. 

The planes could be the scale of the Vietnam Fighters or bigger like the P-51 Mustang plan set.

Any thoughts are greatly appreciated.

Glad to hear you have recovered John.

Planes are cool.  Perhaps some mod-podge-able decals  included ( I would struggle with freehand painting the tiger teeth on the P40.
The gull wing joints on the Corsair could be a bit fragile. May I suggest a dovetail style of joint to increase the bond area and put some of it in shear , not just butt joined?

The Vietnam fighter scale is just right for me, and could be scaled up/down anyway for those who want more/less.

As for the hotrod, .... only SIX exhausts??  c'mon, a hotrod without a V8?  shame!

Wombat...I appreciate your suggestions. Will switch from V6 to V8 and carefully engineer the F4 Corsair wings and with planes to the Vietnam scale. Will also include printable decals.

Hi John glad see your back at the drawing board.
I'm not much of a plane person but the model A is right up my alley.  So keep them coming.

More fighter planes and a hot rod, what is not to like?

I'm happy to see the P-47 Thunderbolt in the mix. It was a workhorse in WWII. I would also like to see an A-10 Thunderbolt II, aka Warthog.

Not too complicated or fragile, please, I build toys for kids, not models.

Advanced techniques are the basics perfectly applied.

Good morning gents and a merry Xmas to you all
I have not made any aircraft yet, but have downloaded the Vietnam ones, to have a go at.
The new ones look very good and I will definitely have a go with them.
Love the Model A.
Cheers Andy
