Uh? No: I have read the technical book of this wonderful machine, and it is written "best with ice", not "hot" at all ;)

WOW!  Literally fantastic creations!  And the craftsmanship is great too.  I would take them to an art gallery and see if they could be shown.  Sales are also a possibility.

thanks for the encouragement! putting things in a frame makes an effect indeed  ;) I tried that for another experiment with the notion of spiral (which this DC10 is beginning to draw) :



I sometimes try to appraoch the art world, but it is not always much into aircraft  ;)

I see that spats have a special effect here : I have a few ones in my spares box, I might use them soon ...  ;)

talking about spats ...

I had parts left from an Ar196 (the floats were used elsewhere), and a nice small can of Coke, and the fit looked nice, scalewise at least ; and I also had these wheels in spats, most probably from a Ar 95 (wheeled version), so here it goes :

You are right, this may be a great discovery for the future without petroleum anymore: bubble soda huge tank, shake than direct the explosion rearward, and that's a tremendous push forward... ;) (ericr deserves the Nobel Prize 2015 according to me, seriously).
