Well
I have put the Hurricane to one side for a rest, so that I can have ago at designing and building a 3D sport plane, so here goes, have a look at these images, what do you think?

Hi all again
The web site would not allow me to post more than 6 images so here are a few more of my 3D model Plane.

Before anyone should ask, I do not intend to kit it, but, if it should fly fantastic, well I might finish the drawings that is, if anyone should want a copy.

If anyone is interested I have designed and built a aileron wing for my "Junior 60" and flown it, called it my "senior 60" and it does fly good, however I fitted, what I think is, too big an engine so. I have fitted 45 four stroke in it, which should be a lot better, will keep you posted.

That's looking pretty good Dave. All from scratch? You've kept that quiet, so how long you been working on it?

(BTW - the attachment limit is to prevent someone going on and adding zillions of pictures and using up all our space. It is configurable so I can change the number of attachments per post if it is a real problem.)

Not quite sure how long it took me , but no longer than say a few weeks, most of the time was spent in deciding details.
I kept it quiet because, in case the result was just a pile of rubbish but it does not look bad, I am looking forward to flying it.
