I wasn't convinced of the Catfish similarity. Cat fish have their fins at mid body (called mid-wing on airplanes) not on the bottom. The vertical 'fin' is too oversized to account for fish similarity, artistic license aside. Asking why the wings were curved for the flying model is like asking why and kid's toy is not aerodynamic. Necessary for a slow model, not for a jet. A 3/4 inch, 4x8 sheet of plywood will fly at 30 miles an hour from the short runway of a 69 Meteor car roof I learned this 40 years ago. The curls in front might depict turbulence ahead of the leading edge but I doubt it. The vertical 'stabilizer' intrigues me more than anything. Do the lines denote stiffeners. Where's the dorsal fin if this is supposed to depict a fish. They all have dorsal fins. A lot of the explanations offered were good. Not this one. Also the chisel explanation was glossed over. They added this metal and that to make their chisels, the same metal used the same as tie-clips to hold stone blocks together. I watched a documentary once where these same ties were discussed because metallurgical engineers wondered how these people managed to come up with this alloy which modern metal making didn't invent at Bethel Steel until 1939. This place on the ancient shore of Titicaca was dated at 17,000 years in this doc. I don't know if this accurate. But if so how did metal workers back then come up with chisels hard enough to work stone without chisel marks? Just more to confuse things. Don Ledger Listen to 'Strange Days...
