Mark, have been so pre-occupied looking at your artwork I never saw your true 3D stuff.
WOW. Nice work!
Craig, later Pfalzes are a favorite! -
A friend is building an AC Bristol f2b right now and it started me thinking, seeing that Pfalz and a Biff in my mind's eye:
Why in the world do a dropped lower wing like that?
-restricts access to that area of the fuselage for mainentance
-add't'l rigging, struts
-less strength (?) in wing root area, that is, the combo of fuse & wing is stronger?
It's never made sense...anyone? Craig?
"A King may move a man, a father may claim a son,
but remember that even when those who move you be Kings,
or men of power, your soul is in your keeping alone.
When you stand before God, you cannot say,
"But I was told by others to do thus."
"Virtue was not convenient at the time."
This will not suffice.."
