This is an obscure airplane that was designed around the end of World War I and for which plans were marketed by the George D. White Company of 107 East 49th Street, Los Angeles, California, in 1919. A very early forerunner of the homebuilt movement, the configuration is generally suitable for a Peanut model.
Its major fault as a Peanut design is its very short nose. This is not a real problem if it is to be powered with the new Peanut size CO-2 engine being manufactured by Bill Brown.
The model illustrated here has the Brown engine installed exactly as shown on the plans and balances at the CG point indicated. It weighs 14-1/2 grams complete, of which the engine installation is 5-1/2 grams including the 2 cc tank. Model structure is all balsa wood with the exceptions of struts, tailskid, rudder outline, firewall, and of course the wheels and engine installation. The model is covered with lightweight Japanese tissue and has three coats of thin nitrate dope.
The structure of the model is very simple and does not require a lot of explanation beyond what is on the plan. The engine installation is probably worth a short description because it takes a little force to fill the tank and the model needs to be reinforced to take these loads.
