Duke Horn's FAC Curtis SBC-3 Helldiver
Duke Horn is a long time competitive Flying Aces Club (FAC) scale modeler from Dallas. This morning Duke came over around 10:00 a.m. for coffee, donuts and some modeling "Show and tell". I showed Duke several of my models and then Sue fixed us lunch. After lunch, Duke went out to his car and brought in his Curtiss SBC-3 Helldive. This is one beautiful competition scale rubber model biplane and so well done. It was everything I expected it to be and more. We positioned the Helldiver up on the work table and I took a number of pictures of it that I want yopu to see.
Duke also had two other rubber models with him that were not scale. We had great time today sharing our modeling experiences and just visiting together. It is so seldom that I ever get to talk to other modelers. Thanks Duke for coming over and making my day enjoyable..............................Tandy Walker
