I just joined last week and already very excited to get going on a project.
I am buying a Minimoa short kit from cliff and will be my first large model and I know I will need some advise and help. I have built regular homebuilt and help to restore classic and antique aircraft over the last 50 or so years.
I am retired from flying airline and business aircraft and looking forward to building some models .(too old to fly now 77). I have been active in the Rc world for the last 3 years and before that started in the mid fifties with u control but had too many other things going on, wife,kids,job,etc.
I will odrer my short kit later this week.
Where is the best sorce of supply for birch ply? I know I will be needing some. (a lot)
Look forward to getting started.

Re: Birch Ply...
As you are in Ca I suggest you contact 'Aircraft Spruce and Specialty'.
Aircraft Spruce WEST
225 Airport Circle
Corona, CA 92880
I have used them for full size and large model timber and they are very helpful.
May be rather expensive for model use though, as all wood is certificated
