Ah! Sorry guys! I've been trying to get my **** together to post something on here (I also have some pics from the historic flight museum and Seattle), but unfortunately I came home and started my part-time work the very next day so I'm waiting for a bit of free time to sort everything out and write up an account of my experiences for you all.
BUT, yes, in a nutshell, I felt incredibly grateful and lucky—what a tour! And most importantly, it looks like the model will end up at the Future of Flight museum when done, at least for a good chunk of time
