I hope the link will open for you.
It seemed to call out to me, from the TOY shelf at the local GOODWILL thrift shop.
"TAKE ME HOME!"
And, for only $2.99 plus local sales tax, it became mine.
SIGNED by the fellow who made it, so, what the HLL, I looked him up.
Dang thing IS wonderfully made, but I was ASTOUNDED to see the MSRP on it.
If the link opens, you can see it for yourself.
Bright red biplane.
if the link does NOT open, I'll come back later and post the price.
The dowels were loose, as was the propeller.
The pilot, seeing that the wings were about to come off, had obiously bailed out.
We never met, but the catalog picture shows him as being a genuine wooden-head.
But with loose wings and the propeller about to fall off, even a fellow with a solid wooden head knows enough to JUMP!
Any pilots out there have any DIFFERENT advice for him???

The link works Mike. i built one very similar in grade 7 shop class. I wish I still had it.
It ain't like Canada suddenly ran out of TREES!
How could you pass that up? That is a great find.
Naw ,Mike. This is a good "toy airplane".
MSRP must be a miss print or the decimal point is in the wrong place.
The one in the link is the one they sell to Nigerian princes.
