    P3.JPG Thank you John, the airplane is a model of a Lublin R-IIIXD which was a Polish observation airplane used in the 30's and it was still in service when Germany invaded Poland. I built the model to 1/4 scale which gives it a span of 132", power is a Saito FG 36 gas four stroke. It tips the scales at just 26lbs so the thing flies like a giant Sig Kadet!
    It has been to Top Gun 3 times but it really lacks the "WOW" factor so it will never be a winner (And there are way better models there). I did fly it to a third place several years ago at the Scale Masters championships in Rosewood IN. I have since retired it from the contest life and now it's just a fun-flyer on nice days at my local field.

    Not mine!!
    It is one of our club members, who is a gifted builder and he is a Saito lover. He loves those Saito four strokes.
