When the FF17 air races were first announced I sat down for a few hours and designed the nnHeinkel He 100. After the rules came out I was sad to learn my design didn't qualify based on the set criteria. So I scraped the design and moved on.
I got a message from Planebreaker on the forums and he expressed interest in building my design. At this point I did not intend to enter it in the races and knew it would be a while before I got to the design at all, so I said what the heck, sure.
A few days later I get a message saying he made some progress and included some photos. Since he used the word "some" I assumed maybe he had just cut out the parts and had some questions. Turns out the built the whole thing and it came out great!
I share this story because even though the nnHeinkel He 100 will not be in the air races, thanks to Planebreakers help, it will be available for the community to build in the near future.
Great work on the build Planebreaker!
