Ah, night at the museum?

Fortunately it's a kit. There is simply no way I would ever try to build it from plans/scratch.

Once again, an example of astonishing attention to detail!

I was also taught to either turn the drawing upside down or look at it in a mirror to get a fresh look and to notice any errors in perspective.

Thanks! She has finished her treatment and the cancer is in remission. Her hair has started to grow back and today she's in Hawaii with her parents where her dad is on a business trip.

The smile says it all. Good work, DD.

Clever Egyptians! It's especially important when painting something realistic because as I paint with the canvas flat, it would be easy to get the perspective wrong.

I took a drawing class in high school (many, many years ago) and the teacher showed us how to use the grid. Later on I learned that renaissance artists would make frames with wire grids to aid them in painting life scenes. A few years back I went to an exhibit on ancient Egypt at the Phoenix Art Museum. It had some stone excavations on exhibit showing artwork chisled into the block. Some images had deep relief cuts, other parts in-between, and some were just drawings. I was surprised to see they also used grids and pounce patterns to transfer their artwork. You are carrying on a long line of art history DD.

Very good. Now identify the type of engine or the craft it powered.

Can anyone guess what it's for?

Just got the Dumas kit. Have to change the tail feathers and fuselage shapes. Also replace the cowl with a better one. The color is Tampico green. Stits hasn't mixed it since 1972. Plan to build it when it snows here.

There are several kits of this version, from a Sterling kit on Ebay for about $45 with a 31" wingspan to the Top Flite kit with 100.5" wingspan priced at $350.00 An ARF is also available from Top Flite.
