The word I'm looking for is Craftsmenship...true Craftsmenship. I hope there be some vids/pics of this beautiful craft as well as others at the Circumgyration Scale event. It's worth every penny. How does the horizontal fin work...because I know it's functional.

Len's Apache
I regret to anounce that Len's Apache will not be displayed at
Circumgration. I don't know all the details, but apparently the
main rotor is broken. It is too expensive to ship the model
just for display only, so len has decided not to bring it. However
Len will be coming and there will be a number of gas turbine
models on display and flying, including Gonzalo's OH-58
that Len built and Al Werts giant turbine Huey. We are
expecting around 60 registered pilots and over 100 scale
helis.
