Does anyone know where I could find the gold metal checks that the original used.

Looks like I might have to make my own. It seems Bill Edson made these things himself.

Here is a link to the "original" pattern for the Light Edson Tiger. I've tied it many time with and without the jungle cock.

Check out the gold propeller blades in the picture above. All you would have to do is cut on in half, a little filing and tie it on. Looks like that might work!
