: In my opinion, the Stewart S-51 scale reproduction is at t

: a shame that the company that produces it has seemingly go

: I had never truly laid eyes on an aircraft that perfectly
: embodies the spirit of what a scale warbird OUGHT to be un
: til I spied the S-51 fabricated by Mike VadeBonCoeur at Ai
: r Venture 1999 (I believe it was). I'm a little peeeowed
: that I can't find my photos of it right now. Here's a coup
