A model and some ghosts
Acrylic paints on a small canvas. In the foreground we see my (now) 35 year old radio controlled model (these days with electric motor power). It is a traditionally built wood and fabric aeroplane only 3 ft wingspan. it is a replica of something my Dad built from a kit in the 60s - our first radio-controlled model. I made two, and gave one to him in 1985. Mine has been flying ever since, with maintenance and the odd repair now and then. I am in the blue overalls and beside me is my Dad - with one of his models in the background, then Hamish and Bill. Sadly only my model and I are still alive - the rest are there in spirit only.

Thanks - the model flying behind mins is my Dad's and he is to the left of me - next is Hamish - ex CFI of a gliding club where I worked and who taught me many things and behind the biplane is Bill - a great character.
