Paper Airplane,
I stumbled into this site, wingspallette.com (sorry I cant post the link) when I was looking into starting my scratch 109F. Tons of actual camo patterns but also quite a few "paper airplane" (thats a bit of a coincidence..hmmm) free downloads that give backbone profiles and fuse former patterns as well as wing and tail profiles. The downloads were geared for those who wanted to copy and cut/glue patterns to form a 3 dimensional cardboard or paper airplane. Essentially I blew these up 400% and used them to get shape for fuselage. Had to increase stab & rudder about another 12% to get something to look like it would work. Alot of potential here. I know the P40 and Spitfire are available and I think the P-38 is also available. Probably many more but I have not checked them all.
The site is really great for scale paint schemes and give some history of the pilots that were associated with each plane by ID numbers...me 109 Red 3, Black 1 etc.

Yes that will get you in though I usually "google" on wingspallette and take the first path. But I did try that link and it gets you there too. Requires a bit of navigation but absolutely a wealth of information on just about anything that ever flew... and probably some that didnt..lol. IF you can get the link in place as you did with the others that would be great.

Outstanding Idea!

One question - do the resulting models have to be good looking or is ugly but flyable ok too

I think I need a signature.

Capn,

OK,
What navigation is required? It will be easier if I post that too.

Larry,
Thanks for the compliment. Can you give me the link to your BUFY full fuse. That is supposed to be ugly:-) So yes please post the ugliest flyable full fuze thing you can find!:-)

Having some technical difficulty here.
http://wp.scn.ru/
Click on paper models, (I) click on bf 109 f.
free downloads. For my patterns the Quest 5 was most productive of the five downloads available. I did download all just to see what was available and most others were artists views of 109 in flight/battle with Spitfires over channel etc. All good information.
There is an area that gives different camo patterns for different theatres and squadrons as well as pilot information for the more famous 109 aces. Red 3, Black 1 etc.
I have a scratch build thread titled Fritz me 109F on WF. I'll try to get my act together and send photo of the 400% patterns.

Ok, here is a link to BUFY. My Big Ugly Foamy Yak build. BUFY is currently back on the bench undergoing major repairs...

Aprox 6' span and roughtly 6 pounds all up flys on 6S A123 cells spinning a 22x10 APC prop at roughly 750 watts. The new version will boost that to 9S A123 and around 1000 watts.

I know a guy at RCG built an 8' scale B17 from one of the paper models from wingspallette. I think he converted the files to PDF and had Kinkos upscale and plot out the plans.

Wow Mike, it is amazing to see it go together and fly. I could never design it that well. So mathematical.
