CA-23 Scale 8
« on: November 30, 2015, 02:01:51 am »
Hi my names Brian,

I started my project a few months ago and have finally got it ready for painting. I slowed up a little as I'm getting old now. I hope to have it finished in 2 months. I have the Australian Design Museum coming to take a look at it in the next few weeks as they would like to put it in the museum. I would have loved to keep it but unfortunately my wife said it's to big to hang from the dining room ceiling.

The wing span of the CA-23 was between 31ft-33ft as they would sometimes change the span on test flights if needed.

When I got the drawings off the designer I also got the blueprints which included the insulation of the wings.

Please find attached the most recent pictures of my project.

Looks like beautiful work and looking forward to see the finished product. On the up side, more people will see and appreciate your work in the museum thank in your living room. ;-)
