    The wood ribs look like Wag Aero ribs for a sport trainer or 2+2. The fuselge looks cub-like. I can't make out the photos on my phone very well, but I'm guessing it was a Wag project.

    I want to say it is pretty funny. I want to say it is pretty cool.

    But the responsible part of me is horrified at the potential bad outcomes. I see a felony prosecution in the near future.
