Does anyone know this model and its creator?
« on: January 22, 2023, 09:57:22 AM »
I received these uncredited photos of a model that I imagine is from the 60's. In addition to an unconventional design, this model has an aerodynamic/mechanical device. Has anyone seen it before?

I believe it was Harold Price somewhere around 1964.  I remember that being one of my "Dream" planes to build someday as a kid.
