Good luck, Ray. It'll be too late when they start combining. At least for a useful recovery.

Maybe the kid can program the Drone to fly "grid" patterns while filming and recording GPS coordinates as it goes along, and later view these flights on computer slowly, and "pause" on the plane and get the location ... just a thought ... would need a pretty smart kid ...

Pretty cool pic - nice welcoming "statue" - is there a story behind it? : like who put it up? named after a great modeler? big flying club in town? in memory of anyone? is it on private property?

I hope you can find it - maybe hire some kid with a Drone and a Camera and GPS. Quite the CORNundrum, since the soybeans and corn look like a bumper crop ...

On a lighter note: This guy has been the welcoming sight to greet everyone here in Spencer, IA since 2009. He is at the south end of the entrance to "Historical Downtown Spencer" right on Hwy 71. CAn't believe that I haven't posted this before.

Somewhere in this 600 acre field is my 32" RC piper cub. Lost it when the batteries fell out of my Xmttr. This field also has eaten a friend's 36 inch foamy Mustang.

Creosotewind; Thanks for chiming in. I had considered that process but was in a big hurry to git 'r done. I like the fact that the Polycrylic doesn't stink. What I did do was apply several coats of Kilz water-based primer, but obviously it did not seal the foam up as good as I had hoped. Live and Learn (maybe). Like: DO NOT let the epoxy get near the outside of joints as it will never sand down smooth.

Ray, when I built the F-16 model for the military museum, it was also a foam kit. I covered it with light weight fiberglas cloth and sealed it with Minwax acrylic floor finish. The finish sealed the cloth and stuck well to the foam. Since it is acrylic it doesn't attack the foam, and is sandable. Might want to check that out in the future. You have a very nice build here.

Sorry Brian, I have no experiance dealing with Hobby King.

rayl, have you ever bought anything from hobby king? I bought some stuff a while ago and merchandise was at a good price but the shipping was a lot. is there a way around the shipping hike? thanks brian.

Thanks for the comments guys. I have the feeling that it might get turned into foam dust once I attempt to fly it. (I haven't flown a EDF before so I'm going to have one of the guys from the local RC club do the intial flights.) I kept all of my patterns, just in case. [BTW, it wieghs in at 15 3/4 oz, just a little heavy.]

This is terrific, that is one large model - Again, I love your clean shop too!

Ray - that hushed, delicate, soft edge color, whispering into the next color on your camo scheme, is very appealing!
Huey V77, Comment for image # 3799016 Feb 17 17:05
That is sweet Ray . I'm sure it's going to perform better than the full scale. Very nice job!
BriandKilby, Comment for image # 3799016 Feb 17 15:14
nice phantom rayl!

Sweet. Very creative. Looks good also. Love the glass look on the can of peas!
Don C, Comment for image # 3799016 Feb 17 15:01
Very cool,Ray.

14 days to get to this point. Working with foam is something different; very soft and prone to dings. Even from fingernails. Made the Stars & Bars and "slime lights" on my printer. Tail coes are from some vinyl letter sheets and completely bogus. Still awaiting the arrival of the EDF from China.

Ray - you have me interested in "foamies" now. We have "Dollarama" stores in Canada that sell Elmer's - "Ross Foam Board" display boards - 20" x 30" x 3/16", $1.25 . I actually have a couple of these that I use for taking pictures of my planes with natural light coming through the balcony sliding glass doors using no flash. I found this great "Flight Test" article on building and flying R/C with "Ross Foam Board" and "Adam's Readi Board" (DTFB or Dollar Tree Foam Board) https://flitetest.com/articles/ross-foam-board
