I’ve finally finished the template for the Stinson L-5 Sentinel, nearly 10 days later than I’d hoped. I’m rather happy with the result and will be making the first profile tomorrow.

Initially equipped with the Hawker Hurricane, these units later converted to the superb Spitfire. The Eagle Squadron […]
The Beechcraft saga continues with the Bonanza. In this case it is the F-33 aerobatic variant, with side, top and bottom views created. Despite being a rather sleek and clean aircraft, this was also a fairly challenging set of templates to create. With over 17,000 Bonanza/Debonair produced since 1947, the type ranks as one of […]
