Billy-

You are an inspiration to all modelers...that plane is incredible in so many ways! Thanks for sharing it with the Wings for Kids crowd first. I have had to tell a lot of friends who came to the event all about you and your planes. Hope to see you at the Mint Julep.

It's amazing how these enormous models get really teeny so fast...once they're in the air! Great looking model.

I need to start wearing a bib when looking at pictures on Billy's airplane, my keyboard will last longer! Billy raises the bar so high it's enough to make you give up building and switch to ARFs!
