« Part 11: the leap to twin engine Part 12 of planes, trains and vehicals? series Part 13: the spitfire moves along with a mustang »

So my wife has made a couple comments that the girls at work saw my planes I have made in the past and they liked them. Leading to her thinking I should make some more. I honestly had stopped because as I have mentioned in previous bloggs they were for my dad who for some odd reason requested them. Anyway this got me thinking which if any of you are like me and build a project in your head several hundred times before even picking out the lumber, you know that is bad mo jo. But in this case I had been displeased with the last two planes I built and started thinking of things I did wrong (honestly mostly speeding through and not thinking about the simplistic way to do it). So after the 458 times I mentally went into the shop and started on the next plane tonight I physically and actually did it.

I have lumber rough cut for a P51 next and I think I will build a base to look like they are flying together in a barrel roll or maybe a ME 109 and make them in a dog fight. Either way I hope your all having a quality day and getting shop time.

Really like this plane, excellent Christmas present for my 3 year old. Any plans available?
