I was cruising the web, and came across this odd little craft.

Then something about the last 2 pics struck me. It seems to look somewhat familiar.

Then the next thought that struck me "Dang, I've got too many models in progress already."

If anybody's interested, this might make a great first design, especially since most of the work has already been done.

O.K., O.K., I'll give 'er a shot! I've never done any designing befo', but this looks like it would be relatively easy. Finding a 3-view was hard, but I found a 3-view scaned from the 1938 issue of of the Ohio State Engineer. small, but it has the useful dimensions. surprisingly, there is a lot of info out there on this plane, This Site has the moast
