Cool Do you guys trick these out with a lot of detail?

I have seen scale planes with all kinds of detail. Some of them needed 12 channels or more to be operated and I saw some that requited two people, one to fly the plane and one for operations.

Some of those planes had moving pilots, bombay doors, working landing gear, loading and cargo ramps. I even saw one, I think it was a C5 model, that had a working and tank and jeep that would roll into the plane before take-off.


Does anyone trick these things out with detail anymore? Or is this more about semi-scale foamies that resemble a full scale plane?

I like to try and make at least the cockpit look scale. beyond that not so much.

A friend of mine, Jeff Foley, is one of the worlds top scale guys. Been Mr. Top Gun several times and man he can make some cool stuff. I will never have the time, or desire, to do that I don't suppose but they sure are cool to look at.
