    hi guys glad to be here again, this time I want to share my latest project design and build, it's the XR-11/XF-11 by Howard Hughes, after I watched the Aviator (Leonardo DiCaprio), seems like you all know about the story of the plane.First I've made the 2D pattern from 3view by re-trace the 3view (thanks to APA-168 and zot) and then export to 3D,here some early progress.

    Great subject

    Lookin good Tekzo. I love those P38 style designs, and this Hughes plane will be a nice addition to the collection. I look forward to seeing your progress.

    Howard Hughes XF-11 Military Recon Plane

    Very nice little model, tekzo,

    I have taken the liberty of slightly darkening the color of the plane to light grey. I have also added a red stripe to the US Air Force emblem. I have it printed out in a larger scale now (A3 size) and have begun rolling the fuselage parts and shaping the leading edges of the wings.

    Photo coming up shortly.
