I love this article and the plane is great. I especially like the lattice work on the wing. Have you ever drawn up a set of plane? I would love to have a set if you have.

This is a great job of photography and the construction sequence is top notch. Congratulations on this article.

You used the same construction (lattice) as a full-sized airplane located in Eloy, Arizona. The builder/owner operates the "Happi Engine Co." The particular latticed winged plane is a two-placed Volkswagon powered monoplane. He gave me a 30 minute ride on the 5th of July 1994 in Eloy. The best thing his Volks-powered plane does is to land and takeoff in a short distance. So the slightly rough airfoil works well. I think it is the induced turbulence that does it. Lots of free-flights have several turbulence spars at the front of the wing. It works!

I've always said it takes a BOLD man to cover his plane with transparent monokote, few can do it... Paul your one of the Few.... Looks great, and looks like it flies even better.

Absolutely outstanding craftsmanship. What an incredible design as well. The way you present your work in your photography is also very well done and clearly communicates the detail of your creation. I imagine your work was quite time consuming but the result is quite an achievement.

Continued success!

Great work, Paul!

VERY interesting structure. It is great to see different design and construction methods. I would imagine (as you said) it is very strong regarding torsionally-applied loads. Plus, it looks like a blast to fly! Please let us know if you produce plans for the Thwing!
Keep up the excellent work!
