I have been slowing working on building my first scale model, a 1914 Ingram/Foster biplane. Much like the Curtis pushers of back then.

Plans by P. Tritle...

Certainly a learning experience in detail and taming my heavy hands when working on such light structures...

I blocked up the wings and installed the struts... to string it up is next.
