    Let me get some more photos. That is a 50+ year old drawing right out of the design center at Boeing. My uncle has dozens and dozens of aeronautical patents.

    stangflyer I like 'em "BIG"!

    That is so very cool. Definitely worth keeping under protective glass. Love it.

    Pretty hard to not get interested in something of this nature. Good stuff out there that not many of us get much of a chance to see. Let alone enjoy. Thanks for bringing to our homes (computer screens) that possibility to enjoy even more facets of this wonderful hobby.

    Tonight’s photo from the shop, under the glass on my desk.
    In the summer of ‘12, I shamelessly begged for a ride in this hot rod.
    The red shirt in the right seat is yours truly.

    The aircraft is the Mullicoupe, one of the smallest airframes which could be bolted behind a Pratt & Whitney R-985.
    I’m like a kid at Christmas every time I think about that flight!!

    That thing is gorgeous! That would make an awesome scratch build project.

    :yesss: With a big Moki or Valach on the nose! For me, it’s between the Mullicoupe and the McCullocoupe below. Both are amazing in their own unique way!

    Back from traveling for work last week, so I was able to grab a photo from the shop for tonight’s post. Below are a few of the items given to me over the years by Julie, or the “Airshow Beauty Queen” as I call her. 2019 will be Julie’s last season, so be sure to catch her at an airshow near you.

    It would be nice if somebody made kit that is big enough to fit a 250 radial in it.
