Bill Tan's Passion

To commemorate the centenary of flight, albeit four years late, Bill Tan constructed a model of the Wright Flyer from a Monogram kit.

The hardest part was the stringing of the tension 'cables' from cotton threads. The project took several hours in total and the model now hangs in company with four hundred others!

These are hung on every spare bit of wall space and divided into country of origin: US, UK, Russia, German Luftwaffe, US, UKWW2, Canada, Japan.... all 1/72 scale so that comparisons can be made.
