Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

I sympathize with strobez, space is at a premium when you live in an apartment (loft) with 2 small children and a wife who finds the hobby an inconvenience. So the smaller scales are preferred. :P

If I recall correctly, the Brits use the term "loft" for an apartment. As it is, we are currently in a 2 bedroom.

Isn't that a flat? A lofty flat? I dunno... I barely speak Canadian...
Thanks!

Not really, 'loft' over here in the UK tends to mean the uppermost area of a house or building, the bit immediately under the roof. That space COULD be used as a flat (apartment) if suitably converted, but most are just spaces used for storage.

I bought my house primarily because of its loft (Called 'The Loft' in all my posts here  ;D) Simply because it was a) so large and b) because its ancient 1850s style of construction meant the area was largely unobstructed, which is rare in more modern buildings.

 :banghead: A "flat", my bad!  :banghead: It's been too long since I have watched any British Telly. I'm a fan of Red Dwarf, Doctor Who, and older programs like Black Adder (Really wishing they'd do a special with Rowan Atkinson, Hugh Laurie, and Tony Robinson).
