Design Contest: Empress 400 Edges Out The Larcoliner 3800

Get more design details at this Empress 400 post

 My last minute journey to Sun n’ Fun at the end of last week took my focus off of the Retro Airliner Design Contest voting poll results, but I did see that at the end of the week, my Empress 400 design had narrowly edged out the Larcoliner 3800 from  @M_Lorenger.

 I’m glad to see that the voting was as close as it was, but I’m somewhat confused as to why there were so few votes overall.  The number of people who voted is just a tiny sliver of a fraction of the number of people at AirPigz last week.  I’d think the chance to share a quick and simple opinion on an airplane design would be nearly irresistible… but maybe not.

 Anyway, thanx again to Michael for putting the time and effort into the Larcoliner 3800, and thanx to those who did vote.  In the end, the Empress 400 is just barely the Queen of the fictitious skies!

Reminicsent too of 1930s designs you'd see in Popular Mechanix, good job. :-)
