Looking forward to the next!
BTW: Among Your many details I love the 'Chained to the ground (with spikes) at most :-)
Talking about ground-chaining:

Oh that is just too funny!
Actually the real Skyshark the Museum owned was not so far removed from the cartoon. It was only about half there- it was the basic airframe, wings and tail and landing gear. No engines, and the nose and intake section were mocked up with plywood and metal fastened with pop-rivets.
Shortly before I left the Museum Ed Maloney sold it to John Muszala, a friend of mine who was a mechanic at Aero Sport. He had fond dreams of restoring it. I have no idea what has become of it since then.
Another aside concerning my cartoons- they really did change my life. John took one to his father who owned a small screen-printing business. His father offered me a job as an artist for T-shirt designs and since my time spent at the Museum didn't pay and I had college expenses on the horizon, I accepted. It was at the screen printing shop where I soon met a young lady who has since become my wife of 34 years.
