Awesome Ron. I wanted scale on how big a stabilizer is. I used your text as a google search and got this...
Stabilizer Park
Nice work. Great place for a frizbee golf hole.

Your drawing has a very cool Stonehenge feeling. In the photo, I love all that yellow daffodil bounce light on the fins.

Lawn sharks!

Yessir, the scale of the larger fins are about 8 to 10 feet, the shorter ones are 4 to 5 feet. I'm sure the designer had Stonehenge in mind, it does have that feeling.

The concrete block between the trees was where I drew, if I have me bearings right.

Yes, Lawn sharks!! (or orcas... orca, orcii?)

You type in Magnuson Park, Fin Project, Images, you'll get a lot of photos. Surprisingly few with what this one had...
Scale

Amazing structures, they had to stay fixed on the subs when they punched through the arctic ocean ice. Looks like some are taller that what I said.

10 foot looks about right.

Awesome sketches, Thompson! The menace of public land.

Wonderful stuff. And the bi-plane circling back for another strafing run!

Very intriguing drawing. I followed Ellis’ link to the photo and looked at a few others. It looks like an interesting park but what’s that plane doing?
