When first viewed the Smilin Jack looked great and the sound was an added bonus. At first. Grin

Here is a fictional aircraft from the 1940's called "Smilin Jack"
Ive always wanted to build the airplane because of the look and colors.

Here are the plans as redrawn by Tom and some 1943 movies serials and what else that I could find.

Enjoy!
