The seventh in a series by Leeon Davis makes a great F/F subject.

Laeon Davis' newest creation, the TX-AIR TX-I came to my attention this past fall as I was idly leafing through the September '86 edition of Kitplanes magazine. I knew it was a Davis creation even before I saw the name due to the distinctive V-tail and straight, clean lines which suggest speed and maneuverability. The seventh in a series of designs which began in 1957 with the DA-1. the TX-I is again an all metal V-tailed aircraft based on the popular DA-2A. This ship, however, is much more eye-appealing with rounded lines and an aerodynamically sloped cabin area which gives it a lean, racy look.

Despite the plane's compound-curved appearance, most of the sheet metal and glass area are actually single curved surfaces put together very cleverly to give the impression of fluidity. I mention the above because from a modeling standpoint, single curved surfaces are much easier to create than compound curves. particularly in stick and tissue construction. It took me a few moments of analysis to see the simplicity of what Mr. Davis had done, and to see how easily the design would translate into what I consider a very attractive
