Pursuit of Flight
A huge thanks to everyone who has suppored this project this year. Here's a version of this model with Santa and his Reindeer flying over a micro scaled winter landscape. I wish everyone a great holiday season and a happy new year!
In celebration of hitting 5000 supporters, here's one of the original World War I flying aces, in his trusty Sopwith Camel. Thanks so much for all the support!
First of all, a huge thanks for all the support so far! We've already passed 1000 supporters, which is a big first milestone. There is still a long way to go, but we are off to a great start.
I've already received a lot of great feedback on the project, and one of the most common requests is to get the propellers of the planes spinning. That would be quite a challenge at this scale, but I agree, it does look a little odd to have stationary propellers while the planes are flying.
I decided to try the old trick of using a tranparent dish to represent spinning propellers and I think it looks pretty cool. What do you think?
