Hello Chuck, I am over in Brisbane Aus. and just want to say a word of thanks. I am also now inspired. I have really been taken by your talent. Your work is so good. I have had some really positive thoughts from your work. I have been looking at whirly gigs for a while now, but only just found your stuff and of course I want to try out your designs. Thank you for sharing your designs, colour taste and incredible abilities like this.

Dear Chuck,
I have just discovered your work on youtube and I am mesmerized about the movement and colours of your whirligig creatures. I am dreaming to create some of your models. I cannot use aluminum sheet but I have some acrylic plastic sheets and of course, brass and aluminum rods, bearings and all necessary screws. Can I ask you for some plans? I am interested to create at the beginning W61, W59, W55 and W44. My email address: mihaisneagoe@yahoo.ca
Thank you very much!!!
