Greetings to all...

This is probably the last "flattie" project for 2021...but 2022 will be here before you know it...so stay tuned...

I borrowed the inspiration image from an early 1900's drawing I saw on the internet...the picture below is of most of the parts cutout and ready for primer, paint, assembly and three coats of high gloss clear acrylic...below the picture is the pattern in a PDF...

I'll post a picture of the completed piece in a week or so...

Howard...
