Here is an unusual scale model with an unusual color scheme Proportions for an authentic copy are excellent with a long tail moment and general "clean" overall shape. The variety of contrasting colors is enough to pop the eyes, of any judge at a flying scale meet.  Care has been exercised to stay within the "exact scale" area, with but two ex­ceptions. One is the tail 'section, which is thinned for lightness and easy construc­tion. The other deviation from scale is a simplified "greenhouse" up front. True scale here would mean carving large canopy forms and heat-forming the puff­ed compound-curved sections for all areas but the windshield, which is Oat. Since a great many potential builders alter and quit when it comes to any "blown" style canopy. a somewhat simplified version is shown on the plans. Any celluloid of .020" to .035" thickness will do the job.

Thank you for looking Rose
