Don C, thank you for that info on the rigging. Huey, your eyes are much better than mine.

Thanks Skye - Plastruct flat styrene strips, don't remember the size, 1/16 maybe, painted silver. Clevises are silver beads and tubes.

Skye, the windshield frame.

It's right next to Bradley Intl. Airport and has two buildings, one for military and one for commercial. Their exhibits are first class, and they have projects going all the time. I sat in a Corsair and a Thunderbolt with some students I brought down. Worth a trip.

DonC, what method was used for rigging? Which materials? Looks fantastic with that flat rigging. What did you use for clevis ends to anchor the rigging? Your model looks great. Huey, how could you possibly tell that was a Lockheed Model 12 in the background? -Skye

The Blimp and the Lockheed 12 look interesting .

Looks like a great museum.

Unfortunately my decal didn't turn out that well. I think I should have used decal paper with white background.

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.
Don C, Comment for image # 3814520 Mar 17 12:04
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.
LASTWOODSMAN, Comment for image # 3814520 Mar 17 09:41
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
