Wives, do you think your husband has a hobby that takes up too much time and space? It could be worse. Hack A Day recently posted an article about a guy who is building a 1/3 scale replica of a B-17G Flying Fortress! You might think this is just a big RC plane, but no, it’s actually designed to carry a human. This scale model plane has a wing span of 34 feet and is 25 feet long. He started this back in 1999 and there’s no estimate that I can find on when he’ll be ready to fly but it looks like he’s getting close. You can follow along on his website or on Facebook.
