    What say you?
    I'm a fan of WWI birds as well. Currently working on a 1/3 scale Fokker D.VIII (Flying Razor). Would make a good larger foamie. It's a monoplane, so no flying wires and easy to transport. This one has a 110" wingspan. It is electric powered with a 100cc equiv motor and will be flown with 4 6s 5000mah lipos as a 12S 10000mah configuration.

    A large Taube would be another easy WWI era bird to do, and not available in foam.

        It's been like over a month since I last flew and it seems like that long since I've been outta the house, damn upstate NY weather.

        • I know I am not likely to get much support but I still really want to see a large sized well done F6F. It was the workhorse of the pacific.

            I would definitely love a nice F6F around the 1.2M size. The Dynam just never looked right, and never did justice to such an iconic plane. I even have a scale tail retract on standby for one.

            • I could go for a F6F in the 1.2 mm size Eflite or Flightline. Either one would be a winner.

                • I figured that the only issue I have with the bigger planes is transport. I realize they are making them fairly easy to takedown for transporting but that just doesn't seem like a good idea over a long period of time.

                      I would still buy a 1600, especially with a big scale sized prop! Would be a great stablemate for my 1.6m Hangar 9 Corsair.

                      • I'd love to see a 1600mm F4F with a scale prop and hub, and articulating gear. It would be a big hit I'm sure.

Hangar 9 sold two great models, but they are discontinued. I got the 1/6 scale Sopwith Camel, and it is a wonderful model! I put the sound system in it, with LEDs in the machine guns. It is very exciting to strafe the runway with guns blazing!

                            So why don't we have a big WWI plane? We now have wing plugs for easy removal and transport. Flying wires are a pain, but there are many models that don't have them, or there can be an easy attach method for transport and storage.

                            Really surprised that with 100 years plus now of aerial combat, no manufacturer has decided to produce a larger foamy to remember the WWI original icons.

                                    I've gotten 8 flights in this last week. I know, it's the 50 degree thing.
                                    Ditto for a peak at the new big A-26.

                                        Had a feeling you'ld be on Charlie's comment like a duck on a junebug! You know when those warbird pilots get old, it's like " I can't go on the bombing run Colonel, 'cause it's cold out today".
