Bill Evans, 'Simitar' styled, home build.

'Simitar' styled, home built, EPP foam, film laminated,
pusher-motor plane.

Always liked the Simitar style. BUT, know not much
about balsa construction
, or fuel/gas motors
, so I built
an EPP foam plane that had a pusher motor, and was
launched by hand, and belly-landed on grass
... no landing gear.

I borrowed, and blended the build techniques from
CTH foam wings (Lee), and the style of
Bill Evans Simitar.

I was, and still am surprised how easy it flies.
This plane is 4 years old, and is still my favorite
for unique style, tight turns, and big presence
in the sky.

I have since built many Simitar styled foamies,
both tractor and pusher motors...yet the most
durable, has been this particular yellow version
because of the rear prop and rear skid.

Great blend of styles borrowed from Bill and Lee.
