"Oh, give me a home --- "

--- only down under

The original poet's name of that song is an interesting coincidence - if it is a coincidence.

Well, that'll learn me to answer a riddle with more riddles. From my earlier post, deriddlized ---

"Oh, give me a home, where the BUFFALO roam --- "

--- only down under (Australia)

The song "Home On The Range" was originally taken from a poem by
Dr. BREWSTER M. Higley.

Here's another piece from an FG parts sheet. To save you some searching, so far as I know, this aircraft does NOT appear in the Look What I Built section of the forum. It's been talked about, but not actually assembled by any of the active constructors ---

To revive a dead post, I'm gonna have to say that Kid's last riddle-rific parts were from the F-14 Tomcat.

Nope. The F-14 LG has the wheels attached to it, and isn't called forward struts. This is from something newer. I'm thinking seaplane, but not sure which one.



edit: I think I found it...The Sea Dart. Though it seems my Models account has been suspended for security reasons, so I couldn't get up close to verify.

After some digging, I think Murph is correct. The struts do seem to be from the floats on the Convair Sea Dart. Nice one Aaron.
