Hi Tom,

Really well done - the Critics obviously have a taste for the unusual & the Curtiss is every bit of that[8D] Love to see models that are well & truly off the beaten track. [sm=wink_smile.gif] I guess the beers are on you

TTFN,
Neil

That Wyvern looks something else. Much more info on that please.Counter rotating props, functional or fake (as in one free wheeling?)Very interesting aircraft, well modelled by the look. Major congrat's to the builder/flyer. Well deserved.

It's nice to see a really unusual model like the B-2 get honored. Most of the aircraft seem to be "the usual suspects." I personally don't care if I never see another F-86...or DVII. Thanks for posting these photos.

Tom,

It was awesome meeting you and Curtiss this week. You deserved all the acclaim and are both first class. Can't wait to do some more flying in the future.
