Hmmm!
My silly pewter will not let me look at GPW's artwork. It freezes up and shuts down
internet explorer. Anyone else having probs? Warm regards, Jim

Not me. I was able to look at them. Wow man, that's some serious talent. Bummed I never picked the paint brush and pencil back up after high school. Got too busy doing stupid things.

Link is working just fine Jim.

Np Jim. You know, you might want to try just rt clicking over the link and click "copy shortcut" and then "paste" it in the address box. I bet that works. Usually is a good back up plan if a pc has an issue with links.

Hope that helps.

Just sayin’ , all the new guys here who haven't yet flown a disk plane are in for a real treat ... You’d think that a disk with no airfoil and no dihedral would be unstable ... just the reverse is true ... Very Stable , and with all that area in a small diameter they do fly fairly Slow , when you want them to ... Fast too when you want , NO tucking problems !!!
So EASY to make too !!! Cut out a flat circle for FFF (no airfoil) , glue on a fuselage and fin , tape on the ailerons , add a chopstick motor mount , that’s it for the airframe ... Having made a few, I can have one ready to fly in an hour ... using hot glue ... Simple as it gets ... Lots of FUN , and very Alien looking in the air ...

... and it’s “Scale “ ...
