Welcome to the board.. I know you said interwar period, but do you have anything specific in mind?

I was thinking on the lines of a Flitzer but not sure how complicated such a build that would be.Pretty much any smaller biplane or monoplane would do.

Boredom Fighter looks nice as well.The plans for the Flitzer are a bit expensive so if I am really sure I can build it I could.At this moment I am open to some other crafts like it.

My standard answer...

Plans end up being a small fraction of the total build cost. Don't pass up a good plane over a couple hundred bucks.

Couldn't be more right:)I greatly admire early flying machines and the Flitzer has what I like.I was surprised to find that its a recent design which is just as wonderful.

Introduction to the Boredom Fighter Boredom Fighter and Flitzer are just big model airplanes. I intend to build a Boredom Fighter in stead of making it like a fighter I want to make it a barn stormier theme.
