    I figure it is time to take it up a notch .Although this thread will be centered on building the Bleriot model eventually it will become an element in a model/sculpture type piece that I am now planning.The sculpture is just about finished,now it is time to build the model.

    My 1:16th dioramas are now on permanent display at the Canada Aviaion and Space Museum,in Ottawa,Canada.The apprailals for the museum were done by Shep Paine who valued them at between $15,000 and $25,000 (US) each.

    This is a model of no particular scale but it gives you an idea about the finished piece.It is made from stuff that I had lying around the shop/studio.

    I found this painting in a book on birds and blew it up to life size.It is almost a perfect profile view,so I made up a pattern and cut out it from a piece of tupelo wood.The eyes are museum quality glass.The feet I carved out of a epoxy Bleriot/Falcon Sculpture covered brass wire.

    I have covered over the Italian with English.It drives me nuts to have two languages on a page.
