Hi Chaps

This guy has us all seriously beat.

And it flys as well!

The plane is aptly named Obsession.

Bill sorry if I posted this in the wrong place.

My minis can fly, too, they just need some help from a disgruntled gamer. frown
That is cool, especially at 1/3 scale, and it's functional!

Only if it could drop ordinance would make it more impressive. That is fantastic

Crikey, that is dedication and only 18-years to complete grin

You have understated the description, sir. It doesn't just "fly", it's piloted. It's an actual home-built, fully flyable aircraft with a pilot seat and controls. He even starts the motors sequentially. It's a real 4-engine plane. That is incredible.

Unfortunately, I can't think of a single set of rules that would work for this kind of model… grin

That is more a feat of engineering than modelling, but wow, just wow.

That is awesome! I used to know a guy who had a company custom building scale RC fighter jets that were enormous and kept in hangers, but 1/3 scale props--wow! That is amazing. Now, does he fly it through 1/3 scale flak? grin

I thought gaming could get expensive!
It's a lot easier to sneak new soldiers into the house than airplane in your garage!
That was amazing.

Impressive, I am awed by his skill just as I was by the fellow that built a 7/10 scale replica of a Stuka. YouTube link

It is mighty impressive!

Most modellers can beat me, especially since I don't finish many.
