Lewis Mason is from San Antonio, Texas. He started building his Fly Baby in May 2007, and completed it in December 2009. "The Junkers CL1 pictures really caught my eye, as you can see from the attached pictures," he writes. " I am a WW1 buff, so now have a German fighter to go the the 3/4 inch scale SE5A I built a few years ago."He made a few modifications to the plans. The wing tips were squared, as was the rudder and elevators. He had problems with his knees hitting the instrument panel when trying to get out of the plane. He solved it by cutting out the top of the number 5 bulkhead and moving it back 2.5 inches. And yes, I'd *dearly* like to take a look at that....
Great job, Lewis!
