Having been thought lost in our archives for many years we are pleased to reintroduce this 1/4 scale model from popular designer Duncan Hutson. Spanning 69″ (1752mm) with a one-piece wing following conventional construction, it can be built either as a fixed undercarriage version or with suitable retracts as was the case with the full-size aircraft. The 2 sheet CAD drawn plan shows engine choice of either .60 2 stroke or a Laser 90 -120 4 stroke – though with the roomy cowl modern suitably sized petrol engines are an option. The radio required is 4 channels or more.
- WingSpan: 69″ / 1752 mm
- Scale: 1/4 / 3″ tp 1′
- Radios: 4/5 Channels
- Power: .61 to .120 for 2 Stroke, or .90 to .120 for 4 Stroke

** Please note that the wood pack for this particular plan includes the fibreglass topdeck, as details are not shown on the plan to construct it. The topdeck, canopy, and fibreglass engine cowl are of course available separately if spares are ever required.
