This airplane is a classic shape from the year 1912. Except for the fact that it has brace wires and fixed landing gear, and the old-fashioned engine was so heavy that it only took a short nose to balance it, the configuration is quite similar to the configurations used in the modern Goodyear type racers. It is a midwing, short span monoplane' with relatively small tail surfaces. We have learned a lot over the years about structural integrity and aerodynamic drag, but the basic airplane shape has been around since at least 1912.
The plans are fairly simple, and since this series has been going along for some time, a part-by-part instruction lesson will be dispensed with in favor of discussing some of the more obscure details.
