Model Planes: widening the audience

What’s a Squirrel?!

Yesterday evening I met up with my new friend Nicole and her friends. This was a great opportunity to bounce around the pub with some Squirrels and do some PR for our hobby. Interestingly the guys showed deep interest but the girls went for the hands on. I showed them correct hand winding, launching techniques.

Nicole and I are discussing a project to have Squirrels as an activity for a walk-in center for homeless people. Lots of other ideas on the drawing board.

The Foam Squirrels go together pretty fast. I put three of them together while juggling beer without too much trouble. I think if I could come up with some interlocking parts for the foam, that would make for something very accessible by many.
