I have finished a couple of models that are seldom seen but took my interest.
The first is a model from some English company in the late 1940’s called Skyleada and the model is a Bantam. About 50” and 2 lbs with an MK-17 Russian bb rear intake diesel with an Enya .09 throttle. It is covered in yellow Micafilm – the newer version which is also from the UK Solarfilm range of coverings. This was a co2 plan in an 80’s Aeromodeller magazine that I enlarged to about the size of the original.
The second is an American updated version of the Simplex by Paul Plecan called a Super Simplex. Polyhedral and narrower chord seems to be the main difference to the well- known Simplex. About the same specs but this one has a Gordon Burford Deezil with OS .10 throttle with orange Micafilm.
Both are unflown but will be soon – the weather has been breezy to down-right windy for weeks now here in Oz.
