by J. M. BODEY

    WHEN J. M. BODEY flew the prototype for this model at the Woodford Rally earlier this year he turned many an admiring head. Already well known for his very successful Viscount, Mr. Bodey has produced another winner in the "Shack" which offers so many practical features for tough construction and easy operation. The tricycle undercarriage gives terrific take-off and landings, the adaptability for all types of engine, covering a total power of 5-6 c.c., (four motors), make it really the ideal "multi" for those odd engines you don't seem to be able to keep in full employment — why not dig them out and start construction ?

  The Avro Shackleton was a British long-range maritime patrol aircraft for use by the Royal Air Force and the South African Air Force. It was developed by Avro from the Avro Lincoln bomber. It was originally used primarily in the anti-submarine warfare (ASW) and maritime patrol aircraft (MPA) roles, and was subsequently adapted for airborne early warning (AEW), search and rescue (SAR) and other roles from 1951 until 1990. It also served in the South African Air Force from 1957 to 1984. The type is named after the polar explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton.
