I (at least somewhat) understand the difficulties involved in
using non-traditional materials and methods. On the other hand,
manufacturing technology and metalurgy have come a long way since
the appearance of the first mass-produced iron planes...
I've admired both the LV and L-N planes for as long as I've known

winter in my shop (in the original box with the original

regret that I'd best admire from a distance.
