How we all started.

You old guys remember these. We youngsters had plastic models to satisfy our aviation urges. But the real-deal is Balsa wood, flying models. Sky has started building Guillows models. Waiting on dad to come home so he could go out and be bored waiting for direction to work on the full-size Cub wasn't enough for him. I haven't helped him at all. He builds 6-thousand piece Lego kits all the time, so this should be a cinch.

Now to teach him rib-stitching...

I built a few balsa wood model airplanes and flew them as a kid, but built far more plastic static models. If Sky keep’s working with wooden models, branching into scratch build’s from his own plans he’ll have a more than interesting career.
