1/72 Republic Rodeo

Gallery Article by Kees Kuyper on Dec 12 2011


Two modelplanes did I make while using an upside down hull.  This one is the "Republic Rodeo".  The upside down hull is from a Focke Wulf Huckebein fighter proposal from the 2nd World War.  The propellers are from Spitfires

May be the front engine should be added to the back to get a right centre of gravity
but then the plane might have the same bad flying characteristics as the Curtis xp55
That's why I called it the Republic Rodeo hoping that the pilot is not thrown off it
when the plane would be real.

The original kit was from PM and was build about 5 years ago.  Scale is 1:72
