Excellent work Tom.  The landing gear details really bring it to life. 

Good luck with the big move.  Got my fingers crossed for ya'!!!
Let me know when you get nested up in the new place.

Hi,

Looking forward to seeing you do the molded blade thing. 
LG looks tough to do.

Hi All,

Just got the computer working again...a bit of a snafu with a virus cleanup...

This is a model from a cookup at HPA.

Here's a bare bones of the first mockup...several views...
...

...

...

...

Now I have some pics with the tissue added...still have "N" numbers to add to wings and rudder...
...

...

...

...

...

...

This was a fun little model that got me out of my building slump...
The landing gear was a bear to duplicate...but really makes the character of the F24 come alive...

Will be using a 5.5 inch prop yet to carve/cut...will make of molded blades on a bottle and added to a bamboo hub...details later...
