For those convinced that building is an indispensable component of Model Aviation

Hi to All:
This is my model of the Supermarine S.6B forerunner of the Supermarine Spitfire. The model details are: wingspan 73"; weight 15 lbs; powered by O.S. 120 4-stroke engine. The model was scratch built from Jim Pepino plans and is made of balsa covered with silk and Brodak dope. The model flies off the water beautifully and lands with a typical skimming action. Next week its home will be the Florida Aviation Historical Museum at Sun 'n' Fun in Lakeland, FL.
