"Except for capturing the sweeping lines of the vertical tail fin in paper, this Curtiss racer was one of the easiest biplanes to make....I reflected back on my Navy experience in WW2 as an Aviation Metalsmith, creating some curvy shapes in .024 ST aluminum sheet metal.... Its hard to believe that in 1926 this R3C-1 racer was the fastest airplane in the world." -Huntly
