FFF Micro Moth Build

I decided, on a whim, to attempt a simple little scratch-built biplane. This is my first ever scratch build so, to ensure my eventual failure, I decided to eschew plans altogether and just sort of make it up as I go along.

I found a set of plans for a paper, fold-and-tape Tiger Moth. With a little modification and a whole bunch of scaling, these form the basis for my 26″ wingspan model.

Plans for a fold-and-tape paper Tiger Moth

This is my starting point for the model.

You can download the ‘plans’ I used, here. The plane is built from blue 1/4″ fan-fold foam purchased from Lowe’s.

Planned Setup:

AUW is around 9.0 oz. The plane’s official page is here.
