Robert your killing me with your camera and your Photoshop? skills!

 

That is very cool the way you placed the wing into the background very inspirational! A collector friend that you may know from WAF & GDC... JR does super nice photos as well. You remind me of him.

 

Anyway that is a very nice Navigator! It appears to be the pattern attributed to LeVelle. Does the wing feel light..?

 

Cheers

John

Good morning John,

Thanks for comments about my photography… :rolleyes:

@wings – great info on LeVelle. Instead of me guessing the weight, here you go: wings weight is 13g.


Best regards

Robert
