Real life...vs...models/unmanned a/c

Found the Piper Aerostar, Douglas SBD of WW2, Ryan/North American Navion.

Apologize for double posting this, it seemed there would be more aircraft of this type around.

Interesting designs, researching for suitability.
Suitability for building my own a/c with this kind of construction method. Which has an advantage of lower individual parts count.

Didn't I already read this post a couple of weeks ago?

If I had something to add, I assure you, I would have done so. I'm not withholding information here...

Dang, that was cool! I was hoping that the guy with the X-1 put a model rocket motor in it, and he did. :ban:

And yes, the model guys use spars, too. In fact, my friends building models routinely use carbon rod (a la Marske) for their spars on their aircraft.
