by PETER LEWIS

   HERE'S an eye-catching model of one of the neatest little racers ever to take to the air. Encouraged by the American Goodyear Trophy contest rules, home-builders produced an exciting crop of original racing designs, with Mercury Air's Shoestring possessing the most elegant and refined lines of. all, adequately matched by the tiny machine's contest successes. These included the winning of the Continental Motors' Trophy at Detroit in 1951, when John Paul Jones flew the midget around the course at 197.2 m.p.h, The design was by Rodney Kreimendahl and the brothers Carl and Vincent Ast. The wings spanned 19 ft., and the nose of the 17 ft. 5 in. fuselage mounted a Continental C-85. The model uses a 1.5 c.c. motor, and features simple, strong' construction so that you can have Shoestring in the air in a very short while indeed.

Thank you for looking
