Bricks Away!

Modeled after the iconic B-17 Flying Fortress, this aircraft was built as a series of related smaller builds (i.e., wings, body, tail, etc).  We call this technique the ‘Section’ method. Instead of viewing the model as one object, the method encourages builders to construct the individual parts that make up the completed model.  For those of you who have ever built a traditional model airplane kit, the ‘Section’ method is a lot like designing the little plastic parts that you twist from, or cut out of, the tubular flat sheets.  Thinking about a complex model as a series of smaller models can make even the most challenging model easy to manage.
