WINGSPAN 23"

By Paul Del Gatto

   As a model, it measures up as an excellent control-line flier, and one that any avid scale modeller would be proud of, and envied by others.

There were a number of structural design problems that we encountered in evolving the design, but after some deliberation they were resolved satis­factorily and the model was put to­gether quite easily, with all the scale realism "of the original "Gulfhawk."

   Less experienced modellers need not be afraid to tackle such a project because of the apparent ease with which it can be flown, even with an .09 engine. Then too, it's extremely rugged and will withstand many rough jolts without damage.

CONSTRUCTION: To speed assem­bly all the formers, ribs, tail surfaces and miscellaneous parts have been laid out full size. 

 Perhaps no other plane and pilot combination has enjoyed a more en­viable reputation than Al Williams and his famous "Gulfhawk." Flying throughout the country and abroad he thrilled millions with his aerobatic displays, and in his own way contribu­ted much to the development of high ­performance aircraft as we know them today.

Brilliantly coloured in a bright or­ange with blue and white trim, the "Gulfhawk" was a sight to behold, even on the ground. The colour scheme of our model is exactly identical to the one that Al Williams himself flew.
