Too Neat not to Share: 1/3 scale B-17G

...even before I read MHI, my response to seeing a poster for the stars of the latest Twilight movies was "I see 2 targets and a collaborator".

That's amazing. The mind boggles trying to imagine all of the problems he had to solve to achieve that.

Wonderful to see flying, even on a computer screen. I saw a magazine article several years ago about an RC DC-3 that had about ten foot wingspan, but a scale model that was flyable is wonderful to see. I wonder if someone out there is doing a B-24 or Lancaster or such. I had heard about fifteen years ago that a bunch of old aviation machinists and engineers at Hawthorne Airport in California were making a full scale flyable replica of a P-40 Warhawk, but I never heard anything further about finishing it.
The use of the word "but" usually indicates that everything preceding it in a sentence is a lie.
E.g.:
"I believe in Freedom of Speech, but". . .
"I support the Second Amendment, but". . .
