Default Grab 'em by the Proboscis. Mosquito TK-1, #0801

Yeah, that's them. With the balsa cones. I better load up a fresh #11 in case the laser-cut fins don't just fall out. You know, I'm automatically attracted to Bill Simon designs. I just start modeling them. It's like a magnet. Just model. I don't even wait. And when you're a YORF Member, they let you do it. You can clone anything.

I guess I have to be the one to ask: why so many?

Why so many, Neil? You think it's equal parts Masochism (that's a lot of fillets) and an Ideological Failing with Hillbilly Underpinnings (I can't swing a Corvette, but I can collect a half-dozen cracked-block Chevettes, in my front yard!)?

Mostly a case of the parts having been so cheap from NC Semroc, I bet. And, they are adorable. I'm curious to see what a swarm of 'em look like in the classic design with varying colors. Although not the most visible colors, I want a couple in white with the single fin in metallic aluminum.

As I'm getting a break in the gelid weather this week, I'll get the cones doped and fill spirals with primer.

I had to look up the word “gelid”. I learned a new word today!

I'd refrain from flying the white/silver ones if you hope to keep them.
