Another project made of scraps of pine and hem/fir. Notice the correction in the drawings and spes; tanks can’t fly or swim, so Robby had to go back to the drawing board. Rather than issue a whole new set of drawings, he modified the old one. I have had this happen many times in my career, so I took it in stride. ;-)
The Bumble Bee Squadron can out fly the Blue Angles! They are made of Häagen-Dazs ice cream bar sticks epoxied to the 3/8” dowel fuselage. Robby says he needs at least 10 more planes to fill the carrier deck. But how will they have room to take off and land?
BTW, I took a few builder’s liberties and added the control tower. There were no complaints about this deviation from the strict instructions I was given.
