10 years in the making, Martin recently delivered this exceptionally detailed model to the museum. He initially planned to build just the nose section but, in the end, decided to build the entire fuselage. Built to 1/20th scale, the fuselage is 50 inches long. All parts were modeled from photographs w/o the benefit of any kind of automated design tools such as CAD. Coming soon to the website, lots more pictures and details of his painstaking endeavor, but you can come see it in person now.
