Beautiful!!  Obviously, with more children out there, Santa needed something more capacious than a sleigh to carry everything.

Very nice, and in such an appropriately festive color, too.

Indeed and the same to you eric!

I especially like your cool mobius strips. What an interesting take and I bet you could enter it in an art show, maybe even sell it handsomely!

I guess it could be shown as art indeed, but I am not sure this art would sell that easily  ;)

You'd be surprised, eric. Of course the market may be a bit limited but if they can sell the crummy stuff I see out there, I'm sure someone would just love this on the wall of their office, den or library.

Your mobius strips are always a nice visual break from the usual!

@EricR - That B-One with C-135/707 wings looks surprisingly right as it has all of the features where they belong and looks very convincing.  Convincing enough to pass for a real subject if placed innocuously on the display table among other real world subjects.  Though the yellow paint scheme might have to be altered to include "Hughes Air West" markings to give it some legitimacy.  :smiley:

What Jeffry said.  I could easily see it in Hughes Air West markings, too.
