Some Models for Virtual Sailor & Micro Flight:
Bolger's Superbrick was
a prototype in the 1992 Common Sense Design catalog. Basically, it's a
19' 6" sailing houseboat... and probably the only such concept put
by any designer. But the idea makes sense in many ways... and you will
think of more when you sail this boat in VS. Complete with Brick dinghy

Also by Mr.Bolger, this boat has been built by many happy owners. I
believe Phil originally conceived of it as a solo Atlantic racer. I
understand it is very roomy, fast, and economical to build. I think it
is a very beautiful boat, too.
My model has working nav lights, moving prop, sails, tiller and rudder. For use in Virtual Sailor, of course.

Bee R1: Designed by the Granville
Brothers Aircraft Co, with Howell W. Miller as Chief Engineer. The
plane was designed specifically for the Thompson Trophy Race at the
1932 Cleveland Air Races. The similar R2 was built for the Bendix
Trophy race at Cleveland the same year.
On September 5th, 1932, the famous Jimmy Doolittle piloted the R1 to win the Thompson Trophy with an average 252.686 MPH.
