W.H. Ramsey designed this unusual home built in 1931 and, although it flew very well, the records show that only one was ever constructed. The plane's unusual features included the bathtub type of cabin, seating two side by side, and the Aeronca 30 horse power, two cylinder engine. Complete history, three-view drawings, and details, were published in the June-July 1963 issue of Air Progress
This little gem is an ideal rubber scale model due to the high thrust line, related wing and tail size, and general moments. Also the combination of open framework and tub gives added eye-appeal and takes the model out of the norm. The amount of scale detail is up to the individual modeler and the level of competition in your area. Two models were built, one indoor light-weight with condenser paper covering, and one heavier outdoor version with colored tissue and paint trim. Both models were
Photographed but the plans are for the light weight version.
