The Hobby Hanger remake of the classic Marks Model. Very nice piece.

Good luck with your sale

I have an original and the Hobby Hanger model above.
They both fly wonderful and look amazing in the air.
The HH model above has a narrowed fuse that fits modern servos much better.
The original is twice as wide in the nose and you can definitely feel the difference in the air.
A really fun kit!

I had an original Mark's Modesl Windfree years ago. Great flying high aspect ratio wing plane.

I was introduced to the designer Mark Smith I believe his name was also years ago back in the 1990s in north San Diego County. Very nice, down to earth guy.

By the way; Mark told me that the picture of the Windfree flying on the original box was taken in Escondido, Ca way back in the early 1970s I believe he said. I wish I could remember where he said exactly that it was taken at just to see the difference between how it looked then compared to now.
