These are some of my Radio Controlled airplane builds.  So far the Vickers Super VC10 has been the longest to complete , around 3 years.  The Hot Wire CNC Hawker Hurricane is coming close.  Others have been a lot quicker only a few days for the Extra 300 from RCPowers.

I much prefer to build my own planes from scratch doing the research and design the build.  The Hurricane is made from foam on a Hot Wire CNC cutter.  I enjoy combining my passion for airplanes and CNC machines to make my own.   The buzz you get from seeing that build fly well is second to none, but also quite nerve racking as well.
