Scale Flyers of Minnesota (SFM)

The SFM members are dedicated to sharing their experiences of building and flying radio controlled replicas of full-sized aircraft.  Every year, the SFM collaborates with area R/C Clubs to sponsor and/or support their individual Scale Fly-ins, as well as Minnesota's Scale Masters Qualifier.  During the winter months, SFM holds monthly meetings on the last Friday of the month.  At our meetings we share documenting, building, finishing, detailing and have open discussions on the flying techniques unique to scale modeling.

The SFM includes several members who have placed in or won the AMA NATS Scale National Championships and have regularly competed at Top Gun and the Scale Masters Invitational's. Several SFM members models have appeared in all major model magazines and appear regularly at major fly-in across the United States.

Our Scale Programs have included panel-line detailing, air-brushing, weathering, insignia painting, documentation research, static-judging, scratch building, plan drafting, model selection, composite kit design, installation of retracts, lettering, and much more.

Show and tell has included Wayne Siewert's NATS-winning Mooney, Joe Grice's Top Gun-winning F100, Jim Jacobson's Toledo-winning Wildcat, Jess Larsen's Top Gun-winning Stearman, Dan Schmidt's DH-1 and many more models from fun scale to museum scale.  Meeting visitors are welcome!

The airplanes flown by the Scale Flyers of Minnesota are, in fact, real airplanes - reproduced in miniature.

Because so many historically important airplanes no longer exist in full-size form the sport, art, craft and science of scale modeling is alone in preserving their images in the sky.
