    EAA Museum Exhibit

    I'll be putting the EAA Museum's Paper Models Exhibit back up soon, and I'm looking for builders for a couple of models I don't have time to build. I'd like to see the following included in the exhibit:

    Marek's Pitts Special in 1/33

    GeeBee Racer in 1/33

    "Swan" Delta Ultralight (free from Kartonmodelbau) in 1/33

    Any Sukhoi aerobatic aircraft in 1/33

    Models become the property of the museum. Builders get credit in the exhibit.
    I need these by early July. If you have to purchase the models, I will pay you the cost of your purchase when I receive the finished models.

    You don't have to be a master modeler. If you are interested, e-mail me at sakrison@charter.net and send a photo or two of models you have built.

    The exhibit is up. I'm still looking for models of the planes listed above. I'd also like to include a GPM Wilga if anyone is up to the challenge. If there is something else you'd like to build for the exhibit, let me know. I want to keep rotating new models through it from time to time.

    I have not had a chance to photograph the exhibit. I've been swamped with a book deadline and putting together a book/lecture tour that kicks off this Saturday. I'll be in KY, OH, MD, PA, and Washington DC, with a book signing at the National Museum of Natural History and a slide program at the National Air & Space Museum.

    No worries,

    No promises - I'll see what I can find. I'm still fighting with NASA's James Webb telescope model (didn't cover themselves with glory on this one).
    I'd say this comes under the heading of education.
