Model plane freak

DS9 is an RC model plane freak. He spends a small fortune on buying them, and due to a high level of self confidence, he believe he can fly them all. But he can't - and he always blame the plane he crashes when his tours end up as disasters - they have either too little power, keeps flicking even after adjusting, they have aerodynamic probles etc etc. Not once have I ever heard him admit he don't have the skills to fly difficult planes...


Two weeks ago he bough a Vision. He had been warned, both by his dad and other great flyers, that this was a difficult plane to fly. But DS9 was sure he could fly it - but he couldn't. The plane hardly lifted from ground, before it ended in the ditch....


This photo is taken before take off.


Patterned papers: Little Yellow Bicycle. Plane & cloud stamps: Imaginisce

3D foam dots give dimension to the details

I got the idea for this layout when I saw this sketch over at Pagemaps:



I flipped the sketch and replaced the butterflies with planes and clouds, but except for that I satyed pretty close to the original sketch?

Have you been out flying model planes lately?

Hopefully his skills will come to match his confidence! Gorgeous perspective in your photo and a fab take on the sketch. I prefer planes to butterflies too ;-)

Love your take on the sketch and what a great idea, that plane high in the sky with the dotted line!
