My plane

The plane in the photos is the RC special designed by Will Winter in 1947. He was the first president of the AMA. The plane was the cover articles in the March and April 1990 Model Aviation magazine. My plane was built from scratch from the AMA drawing package and the magazine articles. It includes flaps and the internal muffler which eliminated the ugly external exhaust. It flies very well with an OS 40 engine and has never been crashed. I built it when I first got back into model aircraft. I am 84 and built many planes in the 40s. I stopped flying fuel planes when I got older.
