The four images of the Schraubenflieger should be of interest
(does anyone know know the illustrator for the color rendering?).Also attached are three images by me. The first is a scan of both sides of
the same maple key I call "FlyHse2"; and I'm not sure of the scan date on this.
The second is my Nov. 18, 2000 "KeysBoat2". The third is called "Key-typeFin" dated Dec. 28, 2000.Please post this for me on the AWES forum, and keep whatever images you want for your AWE files.Also put me on the mailing list for some of that nano wax-yarn for when they start sending samples around.Lift,=======================================Moderator JoeF is adding:
