The only deviation from scale is the addition of a little dihedral, slight stretching of the landing gear and the usual (needed) increase in rudder and stabilizer area. On my model, I took the liberty of changing the exhaust pipe configuration of the six cylinder Anzani engine also.
An unusual aspect of the model is the utilization of a nearly scale airfoil which seems to work just fine. Although this model may appeal to the contest flyer, it should present no problem to anyone who has built a few models. As the construction is rather simple, only a few comments need to be made about the various sub assemblies.
