Another few hours of carving a prop, fitting spar pockets and rigging the bracing wire had my Aero Torpille ready for display at the November San Francisco Vultures meeting, its first public outing. A couple days later, it drew a few comments at the Moffett indoor session.
The finished bones weigh 18.1 grams with a pair of spoked wheels. I am not sure when I will cover it, as it is so pretty as it sits, but when finished it will be the same all white as the prototype.
