AMA member marks an anniversary with model building project

For the past two years, Scott Cheslik has been spending an inordinate amount of time with Miss Shirley, but his wife Sharon doesn’t mind.

Miss Shirley, after all, is a model airplane.

Not just any model airplane, though. The blue and yellow beauty with the more than eight-foot wingspan, which Cheslik painstakingly built, is a copy of the very first control-line model ever constructed, one made by Oba St. Clair in 1937 and named after his then 2-year-old daughter, Shirley.
