This is a model of Boeing PT-17 Stearman, from WWII era. A biplane from 40s, it was used as a trainer plane for many US fighter pilot. Now the plane use for acrobatic shows, private owned or even for crop dusting. I always combine many my hobbies into one if possible. As you may have know on my Facebook I've been busy experimenting with my new hobby, scratch building an RC plane using foam. The design method for foam aircraft model is pretty similar to paper model template version, but it's already simplified even more. I re-use the 3D model for making paper model template. The scale is 1:40 the same scale as the existing Wilga model. The template use formers and inner glue tabs, so you need to provide 2 kind of paper. You will need cardboard for its formers/ frames and 100 gram paper for the skins.
