Don; First glance, I thought that it was your Laird in the foreground and was going to compliment you on the nice "Laird Planes (Chicago)" decal on the side.

Huey, look in the background. This is the New England Air Museum.

Thanks Ray and Creosotewind. Creosotewind - if you get on that Mystery ship (Which I think this one was built to challenge), you,Huey and I have the makings of a race.

Real nice Don. Looks like the real thing (and I don't mean Coke)

Cute little bugger. Really nice job on the engine & prop. The treads on the tire are a nice touch.

Thanks. It's a Cleveland plan, 1/16 scale. Wingspan is 16.5"

Don - thanks for posting your whole, very compelling, "Speedwing" build, and the excellent sunlit baby pics from all angles. I really enjoyed it. Now you've got me researching the plane, the 1930 Thompson Race, and the pilot, C. W. "Speed" Holman.

I really like the unique sliding canopy and side windows, and that characteristic upper wing. Great subject to model.

Don - that plane has "style" - the more I look at it, the more it grows on me. What is the wingspan and scale and what plan did you use to scratch build it?

And finally, the new default picture.

Last Woodsman - You're right. This thing is pretty much a flying motor. Averaged 201.9 mph in the 1930 Thonpson Trophy race

Thanks guys. Huey, the prop is 6.5 inches- which should make it 8' 9" on the real thing.

Very nice! Hay, what's the diameter of that prop?
rayl, Comment for image # 3813719 Mar 17 16:19
Very fine Don. The Glass turned out just fine IMHO.
LASTWOODSMAN, Comment for image # 3813719 Mar 17 11:43
Don - I meant to say, it looks very powerful with that big detailed Wasp "peeking out" - looking forward to more pics
LASTWOODSMAN, Comment for image # 3813719 Mar 17 11:29
It looks very powerful - nice colors

The upper air foil is quite the affair. One can see why the windscreen was so important. So much for a hair Style!
