an Air Bus RC jet. I just wanted to post this link because I was blown away at the amount time and work involved in building one of these massive RC jets. WOW!!

Hope you can appreciate the process. 6 months to complete.

I cannot imagine having these sorts of abilities. And the nice toys! 3D printers, laser cutters, perhaps a vinyl cutter for the livery, etc... And in addition to the build ability, how about the design in the first place? There's a lot of questions to be answered before you even order materials and hardware!

Beautiful effort, and she looks like she flies like a dream.

Brings to mind an old saying,
"Give a man a tool and he'll make ...

...

... a toy."

:)

Seriously though, that dude's got skills; impressive.

Posting that on a model rocket forum is so meta it warped my mind.
(not that it really matters anymore)

I thought maybe it was some type of kit as far as instructions on how to make the molds etc...IDK All I know he used used a lot of FG and CF and gallons of epoxy.

If the goal was to make me feel bad about, well, pretty much my whole life, then mission accomplished.
I balance that feeling by remembering that model trains (usually) only crash in 66% as many dimensions as airplanes do; removing that 33% from the equation makes a big difference!
