Great subject! Looks like a mini rocket with wings. Best to you in your finishing this Bonzo model.

Soft landings,

Joe

What drawings, if any, are you using? I have Bob Sonnelietner's effort which was made while Steve was restoring the original for display at Oshkosh. Quite good, at 1/12 scale. Very detailed and lot's of dimensions and sections. IMHO very accurate. Happened upon them about an hour ago, while of course, looking for something else!

Bob also did an equally outstanding effort of the EAA's set of unique P-51 skis(!!??). These were made Don Luscombe of Monocoupe and Model 8F fame.

I got mine directly from Bob, but maybe the EAA museum has copies available?

Anyway, GREAT project. I too !!

It'l cost you PLENTY, pal!. Cost of reproduction and postage. Is that "too much"?

Send me your snail mail in a PM and I'll get back to you.

Wow, somehow missed your earlier scale drawing statement!!??

You always seem to come up with the "neat stuff." As usual, your choice of a subject to model is excellent !

Nice Bonzo.
What kind of British sports car goes on those wheels?

I understand your multiple projects.
I want to take a moment to applaud Packard pursuit for being the helpful guy he is...He was instrumental in getting me 3 views of the Monocoupe,and his word is his bond....That's rather rare these days.Thank you.
Mean while- continue...

I like that unique aileron/ flap engagement system too.
