    First let me say that I am new here and this site is awsome. I saw a video of a guy flying a card board model of a 727 which he built and painted in Braniff colors. He said it is a dutch card model. Anyone know where I can purchase this at?

    This is the video. I saw it on youtube and rc groups. I would love to know where to get an airplane like this.

    The model you are looking for is the Lufthansa 727.
    The model you saw was built by an ex pilot and he based his 727 on the dutch card model.
    Try; Papermodels International
    9910 S.W. Bonnie Brae Drive
    Beaverton, OR 97008-6045

    The card model is 1:70 scale and is 58cm long. I'd imagine that he scaled it up and made the RC 727 out of Balsa!!!!!

    I'm doing my best to make mine but I think I should've tried something a little easier first.:eek:
