Pilot 3D CAD model almost ready for 3D PRINTING. Needs a little aging complexion.

Bryan...

This needs to be in a high end museum.....
Thanks Stan, but it really needs to be in the air, with Lisa and me traveling all over the US doing "1903 Reenactments."
If I'm able to get it flying reliably, we'll probably do that for 3 or 4 years, and then...

The final thing on my bucket-list. I will sell the Wright Flyer and use the money to get my dream RC model. A 1/5 scale kerosene burning turbine F-16 2 seater, with the exact color scheme of the bird I got my incentive flight in (70-0424) , back in 1985, at MacDill AFB.

Just look at the plan of attack my Wilbur-head-design-guy has formulated! Have you ever contemplated that no human's features are symmetrical?
