Absolutely Possm!

This is not the best as the build and painting were not completed, but the deHavilland DH4 was one of the main mailplanes of the early flight period, many were available as produced for WWI but the war was over before most saw action. Charles Lindberg flew this plane type, and bailed out twice (before that was common, early parachutes, ect) once in a snowstorm couldn't see the runway, landing on a barbed wire fence. Uninjured.  This particular plane, except the numbers, is a model of the only flying example which is a resoration complete with original V-12 water cooled Liberty engine, also meticulously rebuilt, restored and test flown by Glen Peck aviation restoration.

It may not be the best but it still looks good to me. I especially like the detailing on the struts. Well done :D.

Thank- you CD. I was hoping to build one rigged so folks could see where the wires go, but Chip wanted this right away, so maybe I will build one that way later...along with all the other things ....
