Peanut Scale

Wingspan 13”

Power Rubber

By WALT MOONEY

The final Waco biplane design and probably the ultimate in cabin biplane configurations was the graceful Model SRE. After a long series of Waco cabin biplanes that used a compression strut to take flight loads,. Waco used flying wires on this model. Most of the older models had a multitude of formers and stringers that bulged out the fuselage, but this model was almost square in cross section aft of the wing. This Waco was also longer than the earlier cabin models and therefore lends itself better to modeling. The classic calor scheme is also modeled in this peanut scale. The base colour is red, the trim and number colour is black and there is white pin striping between the black and the red. Other colour schemes were used but the one shown was the factory pattern intentional deviations from exact scale include a larger propeller, more wing dihedral, and the omission of fuselage stringers aft of the cabin. The stringers were not very apparent on the real airplane so they are no loss on the model. The tail surfaces are scale.
