Crosley Flying Flea Construction Continues ...

Richard Crossley (two esses) of the U.K. continues work on his scale indoor flying model of the Crosley Flying Flea. The original was built by Crosley's corporate pilot, Eddie Neirmaier and is on display the the Smithsonian's Air & Space Museum today.

As you can see, Richard has finished painting the pilot, and added true-to-original "white rubber tyres." They're actually balsa as this point, but will be white. The nose and cowling covering are completed, too.
