The "Seagull" was designed as a replacement for the SOC-1 Biplane for use as a scout observation plane with convertible land-sea use. In competition with the Chance-Vought "Kingfisher" the Seagull was a disappointment and was eventually cancelled. Several interesting features were incorporated in the test flying stages. The plane lacked sufficient dihedral, so an inexpensive way out was to add dihedral plates at the wing tips. The landing gear was attached at the float pylon juncture. This resulted in the gear being set back close to the c.g. and being long, provides excellent opportunity for a big paddle prop on the scale model. The subject has ideal proportions for a flying scale model, with virtually no deviation from scale for flying purposes.
