Re: My A10 Scratch Build 1/7 EDF

Thanks. It has been most rewarding building this from scratch and seeing it come together. It is interesting coming up with strategies as to how I am going to make the next parts I need, what order to assemble the parts and methods to keep the components straight.

Re: My A10 Scratch Build 1/7 EDF

Nice work, so far, Jim.
Being an EDF jet build thread, do you want it moved to the EDF Jets section?
