Not much to tell. They're all basswood from my local lumber store. Props are basswood and/or walnut. Wheels turned on a Dremel from a small sheet of ebony I bought at a woodworking show. Paint is water-based acrylic from Micro-Mark, and hobbycraft enamel from Michaels', the chain craft store. Decals are homemade on my computer and inkjet and new laserjet printers, with a few odds and ends saved from old kit models. Brass bits -- gun barrels, etc. -- are from one of those grab-bags of scrap brass and aluminum tubing Micro-Mark sells for a few dollars.

I sized the plan for a 7.5" wingspan. The N.17's span was 26'9" (321 inches), so that makes it 42:1 scale, I guess.
