    Uhhh minimum time to wait 7 days - maximum 363 days (if I counted correctly) - it is a wide range, ....but
    what I saw so far makes it worth waiting.

    Thank you for sharing this with us!
    That would be cool if it could actually fly once he is finished!

    Guys, that 1:1 model gets a "A" for effort but my lord, if he had read a book on riveting, overlapping the riveting, etc, he would have had such a tighter model. The rivets are all over the place and do not follow the NACA standard for riveting, as far as spacing and rives in the corners. If that could fly, it would be dangerous as all Hell. It would be neat if he made the fuselage, and put floats on the wings tips, and either a pusher props, or props in the floats, either way, that's the highest I'd even want to go. With the money he spent on this, and this was not cheap to build, he would be well on his way building a Zenith Zodiac. Really neat though, and paint will cover much. The one below was built in a hot environment, and flown in a cold one, causing the skin the warp. This is actually normal, but also why most aircraft are build in 69 degrees Fahrenheit rooms. These planes, built (homebuillt) to spec are rated plus +/- 9G's !! ;)
