Deformed Spirit of St Louis

Constructing the deformed Spirit of St Louis:


Straight wire reinforced struts and prop blade held in place by tape then
coated with Krylon Acrylic clear gloss.

A dowel through the straight wing was a handy helper.

Burnished wing ribs, tail structure, and fuselage stringers.

Base: top and bottom discs glued to cereal box cardboard for reinforcement.

Both the model and base are free downloads from:

Thanks! I sent the site owner a message and he fixed it (I assume).

Very generous of him to offer these fine models (and the comprehensive accompanying blogs). Have you started the Seagull?
