    Combat Flea!

    Found this today at an antique store, and almost bust a gut laughing on the way to the register. It's a comic book from the 1960s:

    Curious about using guide lines with Lofted Boss/Base

    I'm trying to draw a rocket nozzle in SW. These aren't, of course, simple cones, but have a tapered shape.

    If you're referring to the first biplane (page 56), that's a Starduster I. A Pitts on page 57, and, I believe, a Hatz on page 58. All the rest are identified, and yes, none are Fly Babies.

    Government aircraft are not required to comply with FAA regulations. The regulations governing military aircraft often duplicate that of the FAA rules, but they're not required to.

    Good point. I wonder, though, if that 85 HP electric motor *could* turn an original LeRhone prop at the appropriate RPM. Electric motors have scads of low-end torque, and that is what it'd take.
