Egads! It’s A Spad – Part 10.5

Ziroli A-1 From Above 2-13-16I didn’t know if I could truly refer to this as an entire post all by itself, so that’s why it’s only 10.5 instead of 11.

There hasn’t been a whole lot done, but I wanted to give you an update on the pictures that I found. Jay had apparently taken a couple.


Ziroli A-1 Nose Scoop Block 2-15-16A great big round of applause goes to anybody who can guess what this is…

Nope. It’s not half of an acorn. Nope, it’s not a wooden tongue.

Do you need a clue?



Ziroli A-1 Wing Mounted 12-9-15When it’s installed you will be able to see it from this angle.

Any idea?

Come on… I know that you know the answer. And you know that I know that you know.



Ziroli A-1 Nose Scoop CarvedIt’s the scoop thing that goes on top of the nose! Yes, that is the actual technical term (in my world) – Scoop Thing.

Jay is very good at carving. He drew this up and had whittled it down in no time. He sits in his rocking chair on the porch with a toothpick in his mouth and just whittles away…


Ziroli A-1 Nose Scoop InstalledHere’s a picture of Chad with it installed. Chad was a bit nervous about this rhinoplasty, but I told him it would be okay. I told him to think of it like a beauty mark.


Ziroli A-1 Nose Scoop In Place 2-15-16I told him to hold his head up proud! We did a quick modeling shoot where I told him to gaze off in the distance as if he’s looking ahead to the future…


Ziroli A-1 Tail Hook 2-15-16Chad, however, is most pleased with this latest accessory. It is a very nice tail hook. Although, I think that he’s already grown tired of hearing me ask him, “Is that a tail hook back there? Or are you just happy to see me?”

Poor Chad! The abuse that he has to endure!
