Wes Autio's Gray Ghost

I have to admit that it was truly a humbling experience. Up to the orange band on the head, the only tool that I used was a pair of scissors. The orange band defeated me, so I used thread on a bobbin. Simply, I couldn't do it otherwise. I had a terrible time with the head. Wrapping the body was also a bit challenging. Attaching the belly and underwing material was almost easier off the vise, and attaching the wing seemed easier (probably because I used more glue than normal). ! It was interesting to learn that it was not impossible to assemble a fly without a vise, and I actually found that I liked putting the wings on better off the vise.
