This time I wanted to build a slightly larger aircraft. I chose the Mustang and since I had another speech and debate I finished it during the competition wait time. The annoying thing about these competitions is that the judges for the most part have no care at all for history. I received feedback that my speech on how Panzers influenced World War II was “not very relatable”. It’s hard to get my audience to actually pay attention to history but by some miracle I managed to win today. With the plane itself, I wanted to paint it with the metallic color but that quickly turned into a sticky mess so I had to resort to olive drab. The good news is that my family’s new house will be finished in about a month and I will be allowed to get an airbrush there.
