My version of Vic Smeed's 38" free flight Mamselle scaled to 108" with a 90 4 stroke up front. 18" chord and weight 10.5 lbs dry
Ignore the wire bacing on the wings which shows in one of the photos. I dont put them on now since to date the model loops without the bracing and the steel rod joiners are OK for the stress.

Original 38" span shown with an Albon Dart 0.5cc diesel - still flying freeflight after 35 years. Also shown with my 2 and 3 times scaled up versions. All still flying after many many moons
