No, but I have seen the one from the Omaha show, in '94. And seen
it...and seen it...Turns out one of the local club members "built it
on a whim", and it takes first in our category in 1/48th. Nice piece
of work, although he did nothing to "correct it" (if there's any
correcting to be done). Basically built it out of the box, and done
it well.

Me, I have an Inpact Avro Triplane - 1/48th - to get to one of these

And lest I forget - the best of the holiday season to you, whatever
holiday you choose to celebrate (Merry Christmas to those celebrating
it). And have a Safe, Happy, and Prolific New Year!
