I'm in. Love the He-51.

Never thought I'd see Pete do anything this "modern" though.

Good to see Pete's foray into the 30's!
I have a set of 36" plans for this for I.C. but it's a bit heavy, this will be good to see

I quite enjoyed drawing this one, despite (or maybe because of) the obvious challenges. Which isn't to say I wasn't extremely happy once it was finished. Now, however, I'm firmly back in my comfort zone of drawing up a WW1 type. Also not without its' challenges, it's a type I haven't drawn before. In this instance the challenges centre around giving hammerd the potential to keep the appearance as scale as he wants, but making it possible for us mere mortals to build without too much trouble.

How about just a hint at nationality?

No doubt Darrin will tell you what it is when he's ready, I just like to build the anticipation a little beforehand. It's his baby really, so I mustn't steal his thunder. Hopefully you won't have too long to wait. I'm finished with the fuselage and tail surfaces, just a couple of wire bits, some wings and preparing a cut file to go. It's 1/6 scale. It isn't the Aviatik B type we originally intended.
