Here as you see is my Vintage 1970 comet Curtis JN4 Jenny and my 1978 Guillows Sopwith Camel. Soo As old man winter sets in I will start a couple card builds here. Here are my old balsa Jobs.

    These are ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL birds.
    These do not look like paper at all.
    You did an AMAZING job on both of them.
    Thank you for sharing your wonderful work with us.

    More of a snailboater than stinkpotter, all I can add is, keep your course close hauled, and keeps you halyard tight, or you'll be three sheets to the wind! Aaargh! :)
