1) A4 Skyhawk (PSS mass build). Airframe completed and radio installed but not covered with film yet.
2) 'Alley Cat' by Peter Miller, with OS 30 FS. Progress, as above!
3) 'Holly' by Derek Woodward. Leccy conversion for 3s 2200mAh LiPo. Wing complete but not Fuselage.
I like to have several models 'in-build' and switch between projects so I don't get bored, eventually one gets finished- that is the theory!
I am not going to start another project until I get the Skyhawk completed and flown but, the Peter Russell's 362 Delta in this months mag is very tempting....

I've built and flown my "Wiggo", I've built the fuselages for a "Woodys Pusher" and a "Das Ghosten Flugboot". They are all scratchbuilt from RCM&E plans or from Outerzone.
I'm working on the wings for the Flugboot and the Woodys Pusher, but I want ailerons and a different mounting system so it is taking a bit longer.

|Brian Taylor Mk1a Spitfire 70". Coming to the end of the build now but it's been a lot of work and frustrating in places, although finally very worthwhile. About half way through glassing and paint now.|

Only last year's Ballerina from plans, plus 2 kit builds and 4 1/2 ARTFs. Unfortunately I'm not decimating them at the same rate so the house is getting overrun with the things . Garden sale?
Plan - Ballerina
Kit - Mini Stik, Fugly
ARTFs - Wot'sWot XL, FW Ta152, P47, P56 Provost and halfway through a standard size Wot'sWot

Interesting poll, but I think the result is likely to be skewed by the disproportionate number of builders who post threads here; not a criticism, just something to be remembered when interpreting the results.

In the last 12 months I have built 8 and am currently on my 9th.
They are all from plans.
However, the plans are all my own designs, not published plans.
Does that count? (I hope it does because I pushed the 5-to-10 models made or started button!).

Mini Barnstormer, one I can't recall the name, fliu, SPAD x 2, Wren, own design Italian Warbird fun-fly (still working on it), 2 x trainers and a top secret project I'm not allowed to talk about !
Apart from that 3 kits, a couple of foamies and then there are the "restoration / repair" jobs.
I like building.
Retirement is going to be fun !!!

None but there is potential in my wardrobe, a KK Caprice, and Mercury control liner that need building. In my loft there is a Veron Mini Concord and two Chris Olsen built planes waiting for works amongst the 30 odd other models, which include two Junior 60's, one KK Falcon and a Mercury Matador plus Chris Olsen's last Uproar all built from plans.
Rather than build from plans I have an untouched Weston Velocity 52, a Flair SE5A and repaired Super Air and Middle phase 2 that have yet to fly.

Just the one in progress - an o/d Civilian Coupe.
It might be interesting to ask how many builds have actually reached completion in the last year. I know of quite a few modellers who routinely start a new project, only for it to lay around unfinished when a new design attracts their attention.
