    Ray,

    I believe there's a saying 'everything's big in Texas' but I didn't expect your money to be that big.......:)
    just kidding, you did a great job on such a tiny plane!

    Texman,
    I am struggling to find a way to correctly address the NEW KING of tiny.

    I kneel before the Great King offering the Hilt of the Mighty Excalibur and proclaim, "I am worthy to serve you my Lord"...

    My Wife is reading over my shoulder, laughing her arse off!

    FANTASTIC job my friend!!!!!!!!

    Thanks, Texman, for this inspirational build. Very good of you to avoid squatting on this little gem.

    I'm on my way down towards your scale, but have stopped at 1:87. The reason is I'm looking for a reasonable common scale for aircraft, ships, vehicles, and buildings.

    1:87 seemed such a logical choice, since models would fit seamlessly into the many HO model railway dioramas around. Always good to be able to offload one's models, right?

    See also this thread (in English) at Kartonbau.de.

    Texman - did you leave one bolt off the propellor hub on purpose? Seriously, your tiny masterpieces are mind-boggling!

    And to think I have been complaining about rigging a three-masted ship in 1:150....

    Excellent job, Texman.

    Texman, you are going to make a mint selling your shrink ray invention.

    Wonderful work. And neat, too.
