[[image caption]] APPLYING THE FINISHING TOUCH. George C. Weaver, 19, of 4536 Lowell street northwest, has been building models as long as he can remember. His father, the late George (Buck) Weaver, was a pioneer aviator and founder of the aircraft company that built Waco planes, so it was natural that George's first models were planes. Above is model of a bungalow of his own design.
