A number of years ago, people built Peanut scale models of all types of fullsize aircraft, even almost unflyable types, because they wanted a model of "that" airplane. They would go ahead and build them anyway because even if they didn't fly too well, they would still have a scale model of a plane that they always wanted to build without spending much time or money. Now you don't see anything but
Peanuts of aircraft that have near-perfect proportions for rubber scale that is, at contests you don't. Some people still build models of what they want instead of what will place in a contest. Bill Hannan is a wonderful example. He designs models of whatever he wants to build. Some of his designs fly competitively, others are just
for fun. The model presented here is an attempt to capture the same flavor that
Mr. Hannan's BO-4 and Aristocrat have. Those Peanuts are tiny-winged delicacies,
and they are my idea of what a Peanut should be. So, if you find time between Lacys to build this model, I hope you like it.
The MH 1521 Broussard was built by a small, French company, Avions Max Holste, between 1952 and 1968. It was, and still is, used by the French army
