yes.. I'm a dump picker... but I find useful things very often. I found ten slats 1/8" x 2-3/8" x 24" that came from a window blind. They are solid wood.. I think Basswood. They are very light, rigid and straight. I have thought about using the stock in some model construction. Anyone have experience with this?

Yes Roddie, "dumpster diving" can yield some useful modeling materials.

Using a discarded used cedar shingle I built an "SOS" U/C flying machine that used a Cox .049 for power.

Why did I build it?

To prove it would fly.
