B29 built by him and some buddies.
Taken at Soda Dry Lake May 12, second test flight. All aluminum surface made taking photos difficult in bright sunlight. Weight at 62 pounds now. Flew well, but we damaged one main landing gear a bit on the rough landing surface during roll-out. The video was made last summer before it was completed.

With that weight I'm assuming gas engine vs glow? Very nice looking model. One can only imagine the effort spent in building it. Ken

That's beautiful. What is the metal covering, how was it applied?

I am guessing it's set aluminium hammered to shape.

Very clever idea. Here's what he sent me on the build. This doesn't surprise me. He has built several scratch built commissioned models for several RC magazines and museums. He retired from a long history in aviation ending up his working life as a aviation professor at a junior collage in S. Ca. He built a home near San Diego with a full size hobby room with everything you would need to build including a paint booth.
The covering is simple aluminum duct tape used in A/C installations. It is cut in panels and applied over the fiberglass covered structure. A 'pounce' wheel is used to simulate the flush riveting. A pounce wheel is used in sewing to transfer patterns with a round wheel with a multi pointed edge. To use on a model it is drawn along a straight edge and it pokes evenly spaced 'dimple' in the surface. Really quite easy and quick. Rivets can also be made by using masking tape with small holes punched in it by the pounce wheel then applying glue to the tape. When the tape id removed it leaves little dimples behind that look like rivets. This model gained about four pounds with the new skin.
