That was truly the "Golden Age " when planes ,cars, and practically everything was built with an aesthetic eye... My favorite aviation era for sure !!! Beautiful !!!! And none of the ridiculous complexities that plague the transportation of today...

Kombatant,
Pls Let me know if you start the build. I'll be there! Question that might come up, would be good to edit my build thread. Whoever starts one can dovetail on to this thread if they like....sort of why I started it.

GPW,
We are the same page with that. They just don't build 'em like they used to.
And you don't always have to go so fast....actually I really miss my hang glider

wow! beautiful bird.
I keep coming back here to see this plane, it's a fine bit of work. I like the the realism achieved with using foam, unlike most of these boxy panel built models. I would really like the plans if possible. the fatcow site link is no mas.

That's a very nice looking plane. I tried following the link to the plans in post #1, but it didn't work for me. Are they still available?

I was wondering if the plans were still available also. I noticed that it was 2009 when they were developed however.

Thanks I had looked there and outerzone but did not have the same luck. These however are balsa builds and not the foam plans but a good start.

Thanks again
