To build the 'Josephine My Flying Machine' a plane flown by Lt Leo F. Butiste (Di Battista)

Looking at the photos, I probably need to position the pneumatics better so that they stick to the ground... hoping not to break anything...

Looks great! Maybe the crew chief took pride in the appearance of his aircraft?
