Tell him to come on in. We'll set another plate at the table.  Grin
Theres a kit now for the sky bunny. Comes in two different schemes of tissiue. One has teeth.
Btw, that does look like a great rubber ship subject.

Oh by the way. Long time FF scale columnist Bill Warner (not to mention designer of the sport flyer SKYBUNNY, discussed elseware on this forum) contacted me this past week. Hadn't heard from him in years. I suspect he may be interested in modelling again. We need him! I think he'd like it here- Layed back and out of the mainstream.

Glad to see some current interest in this site. Great to hear more about this obscure design, too.

OK, I'll divulge the full name.  It's the 1911 Tatin-Paulhan "Aero-Torpille" powered by a "Gnome" rotary engine running a LOONG shaft to the pusher prop.  The plan I have (not yet located) is a reduced one for (IIRC) a peanut version.

Can't remember if it was a Hannan plan, but I have it somewhere.  The model name was "Torpille" (torpedo) and might have been a later model of the Borel design.

I believeit is French design  "P---------"???
IIRC Hannan has a plan for this one and may have used a guitar string for prop shaft extension.

When you begin to fly you are issued two bags, one full of luck and an empty one for experience.&&The object is to fill the bag of experience before you empty the bag of luck.
