Grumman's latest version of this airplane, using the P&W turbine engine, required a nose extension of 4-1/2 feet. This made it much more suitable for a rubber-powered model, which Warren Shipp was quick to point out. His drawings and the photos in the January, 1982, issue of "Model Aviation" inspired this Peanut. If you haven't seen his presentation, and you like the looks of the airplane, get a copy. It really is an excellent biplane design at any scale. I chose to model the all-yellow proto- type N6868Q, and built-in the increased wing gap modification. Sheet balsa is used for the cowl and top deck, with stringers and tissue for the remainder of the fuselage to simulate the corrugated metal sheet. Construction works out pretty conventionally, except for a few fussy details, most of which are shown on the plans.
