Reminiscent of the more widely known Curtiss Robin, the Air Sedan also makes an interesting design for a rubber-powered model. The general configuration was very popular in the 1930s Travelaire, Mono- coach, and Stinson, all built airplanes of a similar shape. The Air Sedan has two characteristics that lend itself well to free flight rubber. For some reason its designers gave it a very long landing gear, and it has a relatively long nose. Covered with white tissue and decorated with black trim and numbers, it makes an attractive and nice flying model in Peanut scale. All major structure, with the exception of the landing gear wire and the small diameter struts, is balsa. The jury struts, (small, vertical struts between the main wing struts and the wing), and the struts to the horizontal tail as well as the landing gear aft and inner struts are round bamboo.
