Cool Wright B flyer museum-my models

In addition to the USAF museum in Dayton, I also volunteer at the Wright B flyer museum just south of Dayton located at the Dayton Wright brothers airport ( KMGY ).
We have one flying version ( not a replica, but rather a look alike that is safer to fly ), and we are building another one right now that is much lighter and hopefully easier to fly.

I have also had the privilege to place some of my paper models on display. All are propeller planes ( I have very few of those since I am mostly a jet builder ).

it is really a nice small museum. I get to help building a full scale airplane, talk technical stuff, give tours, bring my models and soon when the weather improves, help get the planes to fly.

and I live a mile away only.


All fun.

Isaac

Interesting museum.I use to volunteer at Great War Flying Museum in Brampton for exactly the same reasons.Good times but life got in the way.Are those Ford Ts in running condition?

I was hoping Bruno will do TB-1 model some day but I see someone already did in large scale-who did this?

They are related to each other more or less like Boeing 247 to early B-17.

Yes, both Models Ts are in running conditions and are being driven regularly and also when we give rides in the flying brown airplanes.
