    Anybody enter RCAF 1959 model contest?

    I thought this might be a fun sort of oldtimer roll call.
    In 1959, to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Flight in Canada and the 35th year of the RCAF,
    the RCAF sponsored a static model building contest.
    Different areas were assigned different subjects, and the top prizes were trips to the CNE,
    Calgary Stampede, and I believe there was a European trip.
    Since I lived in Alberta, I had to build the Siskin 111A a 30's British biplane fighter that the
    early RCAF flew.
    I lived on a farm at the time, and submitted a model.
    I was very proud of the propellor that I carved from a piece of cedar fencepost, and I still have
    the certificate of appreciation from Air Vice Marshall Hugh Campbell

    I wish that sort of thing stil went on here in Canada. The 2009 AirShow season will be a good one though, with Hawk One (Golden Hawks Canadair Sabre), a Golden Centennaires painted Tutor and the CF-18 Hornet sporting a full up paint job that will be a mix of the other two... I am on the Hornet Demo team, so if you get to a show we are at, please swing by and say hey!
    Cheerz,
