This airplane follows a classic trend in aircraft configurations that was started by Morane before World War One, and was carried along by such famous names as Fokker, Phalz, and Siemens-Schuckert. Probably the most familiar similar airplane was the Fokker E-111. I n any case, the design is not new or strange, so why build a Peanut Scale model of it?
There are several reasons that can be mentioned. First, there was an excellent 3-view of this particular aircraft drawn by Bjorn Karlstrorn several years ago, that gave good documentation on structure, finish and color. Second, the Thulin K had a larger set of tail surfaces than most of the other "look alikes", and thus can probably be made to fly better as a model Third, the tail surfaces were plywood covered, and can thus be simply made of sheet balsa while keeping to scale type structure simulation. Fourth, the fabric was clear varnished, and a good simulation can be achieved with condenser paper covering, and fifth, the wing insignia consisted of three black crowns, easy to create out of black tissue and a nice change
