Hi Cal

Original const was all Sitka spruce . 9 Cyl Gnome radial engine ( I think)

These were the planes flown by the Lafeyette (sp?) Escadrile, the first American volunteer force to fight in WW1

These planes shown here are only 7/8 scale. The reason being weight and CG considerations. I have a set of plans ( if you can call them plans....if you saw them you'd take your hat off to these guys ) as I am kinda planning on building one ( if I can get it past the Minister for Internal Affairs ).

Mike

These guys have a web site and these are just a few of their photos. The documentation of the build is a bonus for them when they come to get inspected.
