These are all old builds, and in retrospect should have been posted at the beginning of these series. They often represent the first, hesitant steps on scratchbuilding. Here is another from 2007, 12 years ago (original text as posted then: In 1933 took to the air an experimental plane that reputedly contributed to raise French fashion design to even higher standards. The plane made use of an adapted Farman series 400 fuselage to which a semi-circular wing of large area was attached.

Nevertheless the plane flew, and flew well, in-spite of the pilot reputedly having to deal with an abundance of levers protruding from every conceivable corner of the cockpit. The model: For those of us with a bias toward the unusual, this is one that ranks high in the list; simple enough to avoid much head-scratching and good looking enough to spark the construction flame. Haute -flying- couture!
