    Hey everyone. Just wanted to share a big thrill for me. Yesterday I delivered a hat I made for the Evergreen Museum for the Howard Hughes H1 or as better known as "The Spruce Goose" exhibit. It was an honor to make this hat and a big thrill to say the least. I spent months working to get this hat as accurate as possible and had access to parts of the plane that no one has been in for over 9 years. I have to give a big thank you to Brian aka Squidkidd for coming along to take some amazing photos. I'm sure he was thrilled too because he got to take shots that you usually can't take. A big sound out to Stewart and Wayne from the museum. Easy guys to like and work with. I had a blast and now on to the pics.
