All I know is... I graduate in 2012.

I'm going or bust.

De-Havilland D-88 Comet? I've always loved the lines... wingspan is long enough (scale), plus the high aspect ratio would be excellent for a PSS ship.

Steve,

Worst case scenario, ... You have enough information to actually scale out your own drawing. It has the guys head in the shot, ... We all know those dimensions. Those angles are isometric positions, ... so scale in perspective.

Come on, ... you can do it!

To be honest with you, ... It looks like a precursor of some sort, to the Piper Pawnee or similar.

For a couple years now, I've been wanting to do a DC-3, maybe 3 meter size or so. I've just never gotten around to carving the foam. Of course, I'd have no place to store it... but that's beside the point.

Maybe 2013 will be the year for it!

I have a list of projects to choose from. I'm not sayin' nuthin' but there is a 60" (length, not span) F-14 fuse in the rafters

Nauga,
who will not tell you to land towards the street.
