    This is a highly modified version of the JN4 and has a lot of changes to its fuselage and engine.

    Oh my gosh. That is a great picture of the real hanger. Be sure to show us the model of the hanger when you make one!

    I believe you have a web site of you diorama build. Why not post your URL here. I think the fixed wing guys would enjoy visiting it.

    Welcome John!

    Nice to see you over here with your gorgeous builds.
    This is a great group of very talented builders with lots to share.

    Please post a link so these guys can check out your work. I have your Photobucket 'bookmarked' but don't know if it would be okay to post it here.

    I am just in the slow process of organizing my pics into sub-albums.I also plan to start a new thread and organize it into more of a book form once I find some time.

    This view is through the back door of the WC area,and on into the main hangar.You can just see the Jenny in the background.
    I will be getting back to finishing the lighting today and will post pics.

    O.K. Who put the picture of a real Jenny and a real hangar on the site? That's fantastic work John. Glad to see you over here. I really love how you do those dios. I've got to try that myself at some point.
