This is a wild aircraft (8 engines!).

  It only flew once, for a short time, but it captured the imagination of the public and became known as the "Spruce Goose", because it was made of wood.

Went with an austere "Art Deco" look for this iconic plane

Construction notes:  The kit went together very well.  If you are careful with the wing fit, its almost perfect.
