    This is for Nobi! I love the new Zeros! As always they are easy but beautiful!

    I like to build them wheels up so kids can play with them.

    Thanks again Nobi!

    Howdy Bodenja,

    What are ya using for the spinning props illusion? Plastic coffee can lids? Just curious, cause I have noticed alot of this type lid is recently going clear instead of the "soft white" color. Pringles lids especially which is a good source for this material, you can snack while ya work and no greasy mess lol.

    Hello Greg,

    I used the clear plastic that everything seems to be packaged in lately. It scores easy and then I'm able to remove it from the sheet. It's the same stuff these guy are using to make canopies from.

    FG suggests using overhead film that you get from an office supply store. They have a free download of prop discs you can print then cut out.

    I like using stuff that normally is thrown away.

    Howdy again Bow,

    Thats me too, I am always seeing something that I think I can incorporate into a build, be it tie twist wires for antenna fishing line for guy wires or pringle can lids for props.

    Hey Nobi,

    I haven't launched one...........yet. But in the hands of a kid.............YES they really do fly, and very well!

    Thanks again for designing something that makes a kid smile.

    Thanks Rob............actually this makes number 3 & 4 of the Zero. I take them to co-workers to give to their kids. Gives me something to do besides sit and watch the TV and they love playing with them, AND I LOVE building them..........A situation. :D

    These baby planes are great to do, because you don't have to worry about scale and accurracy. Also helps build up my skills so day....... I can get on y'alls level. Also they really are FUN to build! :D :D

    I always eagerly look forward to a new release from Nobi in this group, and his scale models. AND if you haven't notice....... there was a new color scheme on one of the pair. :)

    Not to steal his thunder.........but the next baby plane, I think will REALLY be GREAT! I can't wait. :wink:

    Thanks again Nobi!

    Your welcome...

    i like baby series too. i begin design because i like it. and not use much time to design it too. that zero's wingspan is equal with 1/48 scale model. and length is half of 1/48 scale. wheel and canopy frame make it big to be a baby version :)

    so what r your suggestion for next baby series?

    I think your idea for the Arado was a VERY good one, and maybe a baby Helcat to go with the Zero would also be nice.

    Some Baby General Aviation aircraft to get kids interested in flying planes they can actually get into and maybe an airliner or two. Southwest 737 Shamu?
