I've got an old pic of a 4-footer Will was working on some years back. Maybe that one will come back around?
As for the R/C 4-footer: Ray Mason. His 50-incher is a beaut and works well on radio.
Guy Takiguchi's first effort was the brass clad 30-incher made from Chris Chulamanis' plans, and shown on the picture gallery here. And it's R/C.
Looks like 'bout anything's possible.
PS: I hope this isn't going to draw any flak, because I mean it in a positive way. I know everybody's cheering the new 50th Anniversary NAUTILUS, and it's nice! It really, really is. But I spend a lot of time comparing pictures and I gotta tell you: from what I think I've seen so far, when it comes to authenticity, the 22-incher is going to be overshadowed when Will's new 7-footer surfaces. If the goal is to replicate the 11-footer, I think Will's new 7 is going to be the best that's ever been done. (And no, I didn't get paid to say that.)
