Default Newbie starting in scale

Well folks I have decided to start tinkering in scale. I have a trex 550 fbl stretched with a 600 tt. I have a scorp Esc fitted and am getting a scorp 12s motor soon . I'm waiting for a funkey 600 Airwolf fuse to arrive, along with a scale set of lights and landing lights. My intention is to one day put in it a cockpit, pilots etc but I want to start simple and move on from there.

So what advice do people have?

I would do what you are going to do. Fly a of the shelf model, see if you like it and the feel of a scale fuselage and than progress to a more detailed model. I find it just as fun creating a model as flying it. My 1:6-1:7 AH-6 was my first model I had built and it was easier to build than some other odd scales because of the number of potential parts available in 1/6. So if you decide to build your own creation in the future I would suggest a model in approximately 1:6 scale. Also hanging out here on this forum and Scalehelies.com will be a great help.

That Airwolf is insanely awesome! Amazing how much work went into it.

Part of the reason I want to do this is cause I love building as much as flying them

Did you buy that Funkey shell in the UK, or are you importing it yourself?
