    What's on your bench?
    If you're like me you fly, crash, rebuild, fly some more, crash some more, but then probably rebuild a little less than the time before. Whatever's left undone gets rebuilt for real in the winter or put up for sale and we move on to the next project. In this update we're going to motivate you by featuring a few builds that are in progress at GiantScaleNews.com so if you haven't cleared your bench to get started with that new project, it isn't too late but you've got to get moving!


    Rollerman's 124" Carden Extra 300 PRO

    When a guy starts out by titling the thread, "My Dream Plane", you know he's dead serious!! Rollerman's almost done, stop by and let him know you're rooting for him!

    Thomas' 50% Christen Eagle Build

    Thomas from Exclusiv-Modellbau chose to publish their english language build guide at GiantScaleNews.com and the project is absolutely stunning! 50% in size, 100% in scale!

    NEW!! Orthobird's Dalton 300 SP Build

    With a build like this I'll get over the U. Miami logo he's got as his avatar! He just started this past Thursday and he's already posted six pages of updates. Keep up the good work!


    Bartman's 141" World Models Super Cub

    Sponsored by Airborne-Models.com and ExpressPawnAndGun.com, more than an ARF assembly this is a "project" that is underway again now that the landing gear mods are mostly done (what was I thinking??) and my work schedule has eased up. Look for it at Joe Nall Week in May!

    Member Mail :)
    I received an email from a member that unsubscribed from our monthly updates. He wrote, "GSN was solely started to piss off an ex boss by an impetuous little kid. I choose to have no part of it".

    I understand what would generate such a comment so let's take a minute to once again set the record straight. GiantScaleNews.com was conceived and launched AFTER Steve was fired from FG. It is and always has been owned completely by my little media company, Multi-Media, LLC. After having successfully run MultiRotorForums.com for five years without the drama or animosity found at a lot of other forums sites GSN was launched with the goal of bringing that same positive and friendly vibe back to Giant Scale RC. There's no denying that GSN was helped along by Steve's involvement in the beginning but Steve hasn't been involved at the site since around August of last year. As for me, I've been infatuated with airplanes since before I was born (according to my Mom) and have been building/flying RC since I was 15 (1983) and flew control line before that. Hell, my full time job has me in the pilot seat for a major airline flying halfway around the world on any given day so you can see, GiantScaleNews.com has no less than 100% of my passion for fixed wing aircraft behind it.


    Recently Add "Flying an IMAC Contest in Israel" to your Bucket List??? You're in luck!

    April 15-16, I highly recommend United Airlines' non-stop Boeing 777 service from Newark International to Tel Aviv's Ben-Gurion International and a stop at the shawarma place at the corner of Frishman and Dizengoff Streets.

    Correction, Thomas isn't from Exclusiv-Modellbau.

    I think that's the only error from this month's blastmail.
