Paof, I hope you don't mind. I altered the title to correct your spelling and make it more descriptive. I think the idea still comes through well.

Nice job on the model. Not many of us get to work with our materials from raw to finished like that. But you missed all the steps in between where you milled the wood ! ! ! !

Paof,

You set a new standard for us all. Makes the old argument whether a project was 'plans' built or 'scratch' built rather trivial. Reminds me of a man I met who took on the task of building his own (large) sailboat. First he tripped up the Amazon and picked the tree that was to be the raw stock for the keel. After cutting it down he float-hauled it down river!

We are not worthy.

Enjoy your plane!

Very nice. Next up the retentive people will tell you that unless you planted the tree that it is not a true scratch built plane.;-))

Keep us updated.

Excellent work - I wish I had balsa trees: I might just take up gardening if they would grow up here!
