    very impressive Don,

    so whats next on the agenda?

    takes a lot of skill to make it look right from all angles.

    regards Kev

    Thanks Kev,I like to make them "look" right,they are roughly to scale,this one has a 36" span,I also try to recycle anything I can to use in making them,I am working on a Beaufighter 30" span,then a Westland Whirlwind,which is a particularly nice looking aircraft and lends itself well to making a windvane,ie.big tall tail and wings/pivot point well forward,
