This is the most recent version of a Utility Bush Plane, built by Found Brothers Aircraft Company, in Canada. The prototype was first flown on April 8, 1967. The three-view from which this model was developed was found in the 1968 issue of, "The Observers Book of Aircraft", by William Green, published by Frederick Warne & Co. Ltd.
Although the Centennial100does not have a super-Iow aspect-ratio configuration like the Lacey, and the Hke, it is in all other respects an excellent design for Peanut Scale. It is a cantilever high-wing monoplane with dihedral in the outer panels. It has adequate horizontal and vertical tail area. It has a simple landing gear. It has a slab-sided, rectangular cross-section fuselage almost from the very front to the aft end.
All of the above configurational characteristics make it easily represented, using very conventional. model building techniques. In fact, almost all the information necessary to construct the model will be found on the plan, and there is no need to replace it. However, since flying it in a couple of contests, there are a couple of comments that may be of help.
