Default What kind of biplane is this???

I was prone to think Skybolt... However that seems not to be the case. I would like to know for the purpose of a cowl and CG. Also anything else that could be of use.

Looks like a bashed Balsa USA Phaeton 90, with the lower wing swept back, modified tail surfaces, and a canopy instead of open cockpit.

The fuse shape, strut-work, landing gear, wheel pants, and the lower wing ailerons all look the same as the Phaeton 90.

Andrews AeroMaster ll you could make 3 versions from one kit . This one was the most popular 4'' larger wing span and both wing swept back. If I am not mistaken it has a 52'' wing span.

eP3j Got you PM and thought it might help some others to.
The Aeromaster was Distributed by Great plane for a while and they are the ones that discontinued it. and yes the super had a built up cowl made it look like a Waco YMF or UPF they also used the cowl ont the larger model. The original kits had the cheeks on each side of the motor and bottom. There are a few of these kit in circulation yet but they are getting scarce . For more information you can do a search and find a lot of information.
