I built this about 2 - 3 years ago, and never got the opportunity to post the pictures until now. Truth is I got lazy.

Alas though here she is. It was built with 65lb card stock (white) and I spayed a gloss cote to make it shine. Ain't she purty?

As is my typical construction, I made the wheels out of balsa with gel super glue to seal the pores and sanded to shape. I used T-pins for the silver tubes on the wings, which I believe are pitot tubes. Someone let me know if that is not what they are.

Here she is in all her glory.

Nicely done.

I think I remember building one out of a plastic model kit many (too many) years ago.

I hope everyone is staying healthy through all of this COVID-19 business -- good time to remain indoors and build models!
