    'Spruce Goose' HM-1/H-4 Hercules Card Model Designs?

    Lee, Bowdenja,

    There are still no finished card model of the Hercules that I know of.
    There are however, a couple of plastic models and of course the massive 25 ft flying R/C electric powered model built for the movie "The Aviator" (by Joe Bock and team).
    Please refer to this link (at Fiddlersgreen), which started back in 2005, for a discussion on a possible model of the so called 'Spruce Goose', a name given to the H-4 'Hercules' by newspaper reporters (a nick name that Howard Hughes always hated):

    All the best from Stockholm,
