" Measuring the Sky "

This is a concept I decided on when I got all the parts layed out on my work bench. The top wing is a wallpaper straigtedge six feet long. The bottom wing is a dressmakers ruler . I then welded the fuselage and decided to use vintage folded rulers attached to the metal to match the concept of measuring. The plane oscillates as it flies into the clouds measuring the sky. All this and Heaven too.

Ditto to all the above.
When I saw that you had posted another project, I was prepared to be blown away.
It certainly measures up.
I’m indeed a fan.
