8-foot R/C B-17 by GrummanCat 8-foot R/C B-17 by GrummanCat
Another model airplane I am finishing up these days. Sorry, but they are slowing down the comic, I guess >_<

This foam scratch built Boeing B-17 bomber has a wingspan of 96 inches and a length of about 63 inches. She's a box-profile fuselage model. In other words, flat sided and only 3 inches wide. Not truly scale, but REAL easy to build and I am pleased with the way it looks! You can see I mounted the motors way too high up on the nacelles, but that will be less noticeable when the cowlings are fitted. Fixed landing gear. I'm debating whether or not to fit a bomb release mechanism. Should be flight ready by late August 2013.

I would love to fly that.  It would be awesome to mount a small camera near the nose and record it in flight!

I think it will be a real floater! High power/weight ratio. Might even be capable of straight vertical. I like to have such extra power not only for emergencies, but it allows me to cruise on a very low throttle setting.

Four motors should sound nice on a good calm morning.  Will look great in the air.

A bomb release would be pretty cool :)
You could drop water balloons on people :P

Actually, I have a smaller B-17 that I do use for dropping water balloons! I was a big hit at the 2009 Arizona Electric Festival.
