On my drawing board the Tiger took shape. Simple in design, simple in construction, box-type fuselage that a novice as well as an expert would have little trouble building into a good-looking, smooth-flying airplane.
During the winter of '51-'52 construction started on this semi-scale stunt ship resembling the P-40 Warhawk. In May '52 it was completed. During the season that followed it was given full appearance points in all meets in the Southeast. A sister ship built and flown by Harris Grimes (1951 National Junior Champ) in the '52 Plymouth Internationals in Detroit also gained full appearance points.
The Black Tiger has an overall length of 30 inches, weighs approximately 32 ounces and has a wingspan of 45-1/2 inches with approximately 448 square inches of wing area, including flaps.
