This is the next build. It is a Curtis Condor airliner from the early 1930's. I found that Laddie Mikulasko has a set of plans for a smaller version. I talked to Laddie and he kindly had the plans rescaled to 1/8 scale. With a 80' wingspan that will still result in a biplane at 1/8 scale of 10'.

Color scheme will be as flown by American Airlines.

This is a link to a early 1930's American Airlines movie promoting commercial aviation featuring a Curtis Condor.
