Engine: Irvine 40 Mk 1
This model is designed to perform aerobatics and does not attempt to replicate any full-size aeroplane. This is the second of the type that I have built, with a weight saving of 1/2 lb over the first one.
Structure: Fuselage is a sheet balsa box. Wings are polystyrene foam cores skinned with obechi. The finish is tissue and sanding sealer.
Flying characteristics: Fast and capable of most aerobatic manoevres.
Current status: Wrecked due to mid-air collision.
