      Just a quick note to mention that I created an album with some images of my 1:16 Hasagawa Wright Flyer.

      Here is the link to my album:

    Anthony,
    We can get to the album. All anyone has to do is to either go to the gallery and search under member galleries for yours, or click on your screen name and click on the link to your album within your description page. Thanks for posting up the photos. They look great!

    There is probably a better way to get there but here is a link to your gallery. I posted it because that was really a great model you produced and worth anyone's while to view. Just might generate new interest in building one.

    You can also right click your mouse over the enlarged Image then copy the URL. Go back to your post and enter the URL by clicking the little mountain image in the tools.

    Once you get the hang of it its very easy and the site automatically re sizes it.

    Hey Anthony, that's great work. Last month I got to go to the Air Force Museum and saw a portion of the propellor for the flier that crashed in 1908. You got the finish on yours dead on.

    " Last month I got to go to the Air Force Museum and saw a portion of the propellor for the flier that crashed in 1908. You got the finish on yours dead on."

    That's because in 2002, I spent the entire year visiting every museum in the US that had any artifact related to the Wright Brothers and I saw the very same piece of propeller that you refer to. Glad to hear that I nailed it!

    Thanks,
    Anthony

    Now that's what I call really doing your research, Anthony. I go to the AF Museum often since I'm only 2 1/2 hours away. I usually hang out in the WWII section taking loads of pics.

    Do you go by Hot Rod or Coupe or both;-)

    I've been to the USAFM or the MUSAF, what ever it's new name is now, 5 times in the last 20 years. There are always the "usual" a/c on display and then there are always 6 or so new a/c that are always a thrill to see. It is my favorite museum.

    It must be great living so closes. I envy your situation......

    Hey Anthony. Actually, you can call me Jeff. Otherwise, I go by hot ford coupe or HFC.
    They're always adding to the displays at the AF Museum. Even with the usual a/c there, there's always something I didn't see each time I go. My favorite exhibit is the WWII painted A2 jacket section.

    Jeff, I know the jackets you mention. Probably one of the best collections I've seen. They have several more on display than the NASM in Washington D.C. had 7 years ago.

    Have you ever been to Udvar-Hazy in Reston, Va. ? Now they have some really historical a/c there. Check it out if you haven't. It's almost as good as the Air Force Museum in Dayton, but way more crowded.
