These photos could use a little work in Photoshop to brighten them up.

But I do like the Land Rover Defender that I bought thanks to your earlier post. :)

I'll be superamalgamated, man! Said aerial vehicle is a Fokker D-8, not a turboprop, or my name is Clark Savage Junior!

No, not a Fokker D-8. AM Radio has said that his plane was based on a 1912 Blackburn Monoplane.

The plane is based very loosely on the Blackburn. It indeed has Fokker elements, such as the windscreen, gauges and seat. The engine is based loosely off a six cylinder prototype of a dual three piston setup from Curtiss in the 1930s. So it's a mash of different symbols of early aircraft development. Hopefully it sums up to fun.

I started the plane way back in 2007 because I was interested in the color and texture of the wing fabric shown in photos of the 1912 Blackburn. I ended up finishing up a plane that felt right rather than an accurate recreation of the 1912 Blackburn. It's fun to finally see it flying.

Thanks for the write up Hamlet!

This is a really neat fundraiser idea for a great cause! Thanks for doing this, AM Radio!
