i Fancy building one of these after i have finished the AW Ensign and Vickers Varsity.





Lovely looking aircraft, though the narrow fuselage at the tail might cause some issue.
Especially as i will be building it in Depron. ;)
as René Descartes said. " i build therefor i am "

On the full size surprisingly the tail was not the weakest bit.

Oops!
They did not last that long 1938 - 43. Of the 7 built, 3 crashed on landing, 2 destroyed on the ground and the last two scrapped due to deterioration of the spruce/balsa construction.
But still a super looking craft and two blade props are true scale!
