Similar in construction to most of our other 'warbirds' this model once again takes a simplistic approach to what is a complicated full-size aircraft, full of compound curves.

Although it was a difficult model to design, it proved a real joy to build and a thrill to fly. There's a saying that if it looks right, it will fly right and this version of the Harvard epitomises this saying to a tee.

The model is well mannered and with flap extended, floats beautifully at low speed and remains reassuringly stable. The Harvard was designed around original 3-veiw drawings and as a consequence has a very scale appearance which should satisfy the 'true scale' modellers out there.

Although design for a 65 IC 4-stroke the model could easily be converted to electric power using an 800watt motor on 4-6s lipo The model has been designed around a commercial medium size air operated retract but as an alternative, electrically powered retracts could be tried.

The plans are full size, reproduced on two very large sheets of quality paper and not as supplied free with the RCM&E magazine. Canopy and cowl are now available as is a CNC pack of laser cut parts and wood pack to complete the model. The CNC pack includes fuselage formers, the middle fuselage sides, balsa tailplane and fin parts and ply wing ribs.

Please Note
Although we carry selective stock, we generally print and manufacture to order so deliveries may take up to 28 days to reach you from point of order. Also delivery of plans, some plastic parts and CNC wood packs will be sent as separate consignments.
