Really struggling with a project worthy of the stiff competition from the other great entries.  I think I've settled on the Yokosuka Glen floatplane. These were carried in a small hanger on the deck of B Class submarines.  It has the distinction of being the only aircraft to drop bombs on mainland USA during WW2.  Sept 1942 a plane piloted by Chief Warrant Officer Nobuo Fujita took off from the Submarine I-25 and dropped three incendiary bombs near Brookings Oregon, resulting in minimal damage and no injuries.  My long term goal is to build the plane AND a waterline model of the submarine in 1/56 scale,  but for this contest time may limit me to just the plane..

Well, no big surprises here.  Sticking to tried and true techniques by carving in basswood (Rich H can I borrow that laser cutter?). 1st I find some decent measured drawings showing side, top, front views.  Then resize the drawings to 1/56th scale.  Next step will be to cut out the drawing then glue "patterns" to blocks of wood.

I think that I have followed all of your builds and am always amazed to see the planes emerging from the blocks of wood. I am sure that this build will be as spectacular as the rest. You must have quite the hangar there in New Paltz!
