Default Please help me identify this plane

Hi. I'm new to RCU Forums and need some help identifying a plane. I hope I've chosen a suitable forum. I've take photos but understand I can't add them to a post until I've completed 10 of them. So here goes. Cheers, David

If you'll reply with an approximate measured wingspan, then that will get you 1/5 of the way to being able to post pictures.

Then someone could ask the color. Then the number of engines. And so on, until we can see what it looks like.

Welcome to the forum.

Hi Outrider6. Thanks for your reply. Had to wait 24 hours to post again; getting late here now so I'll post again tomorrow.

I'm beginning to think that the mystery plane is a 1/4 scale Bowers Fly Baby. If I'm right, just have to track down the designer and then try to find a set of plans so I don't have to scratch build wings.

Eventually I will have posted enought times to upload some photos!

Cheers.

There is a Bowers Fly Baby web site. Also, CARF Models has a Fly Baby model, that is a rendition of Jim Katz's full scale airplane. Either way you ought to be able to find pictures of the full scale airplane to either confirm, or dismiss your conclusion. Otherwise, post pictures when you are permitted.
