This is one of the last pictures I have of my father. Unfortunately, it is a low resolution image. He is pictured with the remote control replica of a Northrup P-61 Black Widow—the first operational U.S.warplane designed as a night fighter. This is not a kit model. In fact, a remote control model of this plane did not exist. He designed the model plans and built it based on his experience at the Northrup Aircraft plant in the early 1940s. He crafted each wooden piece from raw materials, and yes it flew beautifully. This is an example of his absolute attention to detail in everything that he did. As a finish carpenter he was second to none.
