Noris at Sul Ross College around 1947 with one of his unique model airplanes, built from strips of balsa wood and special filament paper or fine cloth. These models were built from scratch. No kits in those days. All parts were hand-made from drawings and schematics. Very careful planning, a steady hand and technical know-how is a must if you want to do this kind of fine model building. Wow! Picture Source: Frank Nelson.
