I recently started building models again after 30 years and started with two Guillows O-1 Kits I built them for display. The 2nd one is in progress and I am adding more detail than the first done in RLAF colors and markings. I am by no means a master builder but I sure enjoy building on those days I can't get to the airport.

Very, VERY cool! Nice work!

What's the wingspan on these? If it's anywhere near 1/24-1/25 scale, I might have to build one to display with my model cars. :?

Wikipedia says L-19 wingspan is 36', making 18" 1/24 scale exactly. Fabulous!

Thanks so much and again, beautiful work!

Very cool! So what'd you skin it with? Doesn't look like tissue or silkspan...?
