Like a lot of people, I've been thinking about
building a replica fighter for a long time, but
finding just the right balance between
performance and  good looks (no bulgy
cowlings or not-to-scale canopies) versus a set
of building skills and expected expenses that I
thought I could handle has been a long
process.  But when I stumbled on the Tally-Ho
Enterprises web site I knew I had finally found
what I had been looking for.  It's constructed
primarily from wood which I feel more
comfortable working with than sheet metal or
welded tubing.  There's no expensive kit
packages to buy - I can buy materials as I go.  
And I can save money by building many of the
more complex components myself if I want
to.  But most importantly it   
Why build this airplane?
This site is under construction:

Reconsidering the paint scheme. I'm thinking
something along the lines of Douglas Bader's
aircraft (I know this image is a MKV) I like the
stripe around the tail.  *Note* Have discovered
that the fuselage band started in 1941, so that
rules it out if I want to represent a BOB aircraft.
Still researching options.
