I found a quite interesting site:
http://www.nextcraft.com/
There was for example a 1/3 scale Berkut/Long-Ez project. 1/3 scale RC-model is said to be minimum sufficient for modeling the full scale aircraft, so I find this example quite educational. As can be seen though, the airfoils are different than on the full size plane. This is necessary because of the very low Re of the model. It does not thus model it very accurately, so there might be still surprises on the full scale version when scaling up, but I think it would still be good to do 1/3 models of new aircraft designs.
