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
