I'm guessing it's the Lockheed, since it's got 'stablets' outside the fins.

So did some kindly neighborhood squirrel rock by and deposit an anonymous built model on your grill? Big Smile

No it just seems like a good place to take outdoor photos!

"Stablets"! Cool word! And I thank you for providing that useful clue in telling the difference between the Electra and the Twin Beech. I'd never noticed the stablets before.

I wish I could take credit for it! Big Smile

It's my understanding that -- back in the time long before 'winglets' were a thing -- the term was coined by Northrop engineers to describe one of the '30s art deco a/c designs that were so prevalent in that day.

Never really thought about it...but it is kinda cool! Yes

I have taken at least two dozen flights on a Beach 18 and never noticed the difference either. I learned something and that's a good thing, thanks. I have been building an airplane model with my 3 1/2 year old grandson and he has learned the words aileron, fuselage, empenage, diheadral, and anheadral. And now I have a new one for him. The model 10 Electra is a faforite of mine and I'm still working on a 1/8 scale model with two of the Williams Brothers 1/8 scale engines. It will be all plastic, other than the tires, and will be Electra Model 10E NR16020. I was thinking foil, but I like what you did with your natural metal finish. Thats a good looking model.
