Depends on the plane you're doing. I've got one going (sloooowwwwly) in the Float planes section.

Always a favourite of mine.

I'd sugget the ARF forum is not the most obvious place.

I'm also thinking of doing a build thread, for my next SPAD.

I think I'll be starting the build tonight, so I should have the thread completed by morning

Seeing that there is so much interest in this type of thread, perhaps Jason would initiate a forem dedicated to building/assembling finishing and/or repairing etc. for scratch & kits building as well as ARF assembling. Getting imput from experienced builders in this type of forem would be very beneficial to almost everyone.

I've done all three! I'm sure just about everyone who has completed a project thinks that perhaps there was another way they could have done certain aspects of the project. Here would be a great opportunity for others to offer suggestions and input to help create a well done, successful build/assy/repair!

Well all the best on the project and I look forward to following such threads and perhaps even contributing with one of my projects.

1/4 Scale Swick Taylor Craft

Well there seems to be quite the response to this so I have decided to throw my Hat into the ring. I decided to put it in Scale Aircraft as It is very much that . It was a toss up between Scale or Giant Scale, Scale won out for certain reasons. I have put an introduction already in Scale Aircraft About the plane and Its acquisition. Hopefully I will be able to provide a well versed and understandable thread .I very much look forward to some input from you my peers on some build hang ups I can foresee already
