Thanks, Tom...she's becoming a little sweetheart.  Got some wooden wheels on her...like new shoes for the dance.  Wink

Was reading about Roland Garros...early French aviator and pioneer before WWI...shot down by groundfire in 1915...escaped German captivity in 1918.  Rejoined the ranks only to be shot down again in a SPAD...this time for keeps.  A hero to the French nation, to this day.

Thanks, Mike.  I actually started with a plan from Outerzone...Morane_Saulnier_Type_N_oz11544...felt it was decently close to the actual aircraft outline...reduced down to peanut scale.  Just recently I discovered this Czech plan that is nice...but incomplete.  In the end...just a good outline plan is what we need...then it's all mods from there.  Always found it difficult to be restricted by a particular plan.  Never could color within the lines.  Grin

Looking very nice Neal.  I dug back in my peanut binder and found the MS plan I remembered from my youth - it was by Clarence Mather and was published in the Sep 1983 M.A.N.  Looks like it would build into a nice model, much like yours.

the all-important spinner....the bullet  it was actually removed in the field to facilitate more efficient cooling...with minimal reduction in airspeed (89mph!)  the actual problem with this aircraft (among several) was its excessive landing speed   every time I read about that I think of Andy and his Starfighter.  Shocked

less than a year later (1916) Britol's M1C was doing 140mph in level flight with a Vickers on board...but by that time Farnborough had such a bugaboo about monoplanes that they were tone-deaf.

Proceeding with the "business end" of things...removable cowl/engine...drop a little LeRhone in there that will also serve as the nose button.  Could leave the large spinner off...but, no problem with overheating...so...put it on.  Wink

Indeed it is small, Tom...and therein lay the rub...why nearly all of my peanut builds become display models...to fly, the weight needs to be kept to a minimum...which in turn means constructing an airplane so fragile as to invite its very destruction!  I just can't bring myself to do it!  Undecided

I've had this issue of Flying Models (1988) in my "special library" located within my "special reading room"...contains a plan, Caudron Type N 13in oz7853 by Larry Kruse that epitomizes what is necessary for a successful flying peanut scale model.  I've included a copy here...just to let you check out the wood sizes used.  It is also available at Outerzone.  Take a gander at that tail plane!  Condenser paper covering?

One thing I've always done on a peanut build is avoid use of wire in the landing gear...except for an axle.  Anything this small should be able to withstand an "ordinary" grass landing...my theory.
