Are you sure Tophe wasn't on that design team?  ;D ;)
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Regards

There were rumours that the bartender had a French accent, he disappeared
after that weekend and was never seen again. A wino in the alley behind
the Derby claimed to have seen him step into a glowing globe which then
vanished. His story was dismissed as the ramblings of a wetbrain with the DTs.

Certainly an interesting looking aeroplane  :thumbsup:

Sure it was a glowing globe and not a police box ?  ;)

The most recent project, a new art piece and a model of sorts, I made it as a donation
to a local arts organization, the Schack Arts Center, for their Fall Silent Auction fundraiser.

A roughly half-size replication of a 15th century BCE Egyptian flint-bladed sickle. Mahogany,
ebony, wenge, rosewood, white acrylic (to approximate the flint) and graphite epoxy
(both as adhesive and to simulate the pitch used to secure the "flints", so yes, it's purposely
visible).

It's mounted on a 12" X 12" hardboard panel faced pre-primed 1.5" thick frame that was supplied
by the arts organization, it will be on display with works by other artists all on the same supplied
panel. The panel is coated with a gold gesso, and the sides covered with 1/16th mahogany ,
which you can't see because in my usual fashion I forgot to get a proper series of photos.
 :banghead:
I'll go get some proper non-phone photos when it's hung.
 ;D

If anyone in the Greater Puget Sound area wants to go bid the auction is from Sept. 12th to 19th,
the final night being their annual Pints & Pumpkins event where you can drink beer, look at art,
watch glassblowers and schmooze.

Oh yeah, I am still working on my model projects, they've just taken a back-seat for a bit.  :thumbsup:

Now that, to my eye, is a very pleasing shape.

Good work.

I have consulted my Egyptology advisor (doesn't everyone have one?) and he informs me that the design of the sickle stems from an asses jawbone.  He even sent me a (far too small to post here) ancient wall painting of an ancient Egyptian using said equines mouthparts to cut their grass.

It went for $120 at the silent auction, all funds support their education programs,
and was purchased by a member of the organization's Board of Directors.
 ;D

I got the feedback that everybody at the Schack who saw the piece was impressed
by the craftsmanship.
