Building an Airplane in the Basement with Insulation Foam, Tape, Glue, Poplar...



But this one is not a model RC plane.  This kid intends to pilot this plane while actually sitting in it.  

As a parent, I must say this is really nuts.  Stick to the models Peter!  Or maybe put some goggles on the big dog and let him fly it!

  1. At least he's not taking 17ys to build it like Bally's Bomber http://theballybomber.com/
