    That is what I like about the DeSoutter MK1 it isn't something you see very often if ever. You get a WOW factor at the field and everyone wants to know what it is and a little of it's history. The MK1 has many unusual details you find in Golden Era aircraft when aviation was full of people experimenting without too many preconceived ideas pushing the envelope.

    Looking at my avatar it's not hard for you to see what I like, they only built 14 of that airplane.

    RE: DESOUTTER mk1

    Time for a new trailer? I must admit I limit myself to 1/5th scale or a 84" wingspan for the same reason. I just upgraded from a 1998 Acura RL to a 2001 Acura MDX so I maybe able to squeeze in a few large planes.

    RE: DESOUTTER mk1

    door skins are amazing & best is they are cheap.... i have been using them since 1999... happy with it i mainly built small planes 40-60 size so need to make hollow cuts to make it lighter... all 40 size trainers i have built in the past have the same door skin fuselage & wings are either built up or foam...
