And now, about the model: Once I bought a model kit in ebay. The previous owner added the simple kits of this funny looking airplanes as a present to it. At the first moment I was not sure what to do with them, but the actual situation brought me to the idea to build them as RC-planes.
The planes were designed as gliders, but as they have such small wings, I
decided to convert them into motor planes. So the white one I build with almost no modifications. I just added the running prop to the nose. The second one
got a open cockpit with a small pilot (Preiser, 1:87) in it. Further I installed
The RC-pilot is a figure in 1:48. Years ago I bought some of them (also ebay) to use them as civil pilots for 1:48-models. I modified his arms, gave him a selfmade transmitter and a cap. The flag was also built from scratch. I heated a thin sheet of plastic and glued it to a carbon fiber rod.
The base plate is out of wood. To imitate the grass I glued rough sandpaper
on it and painted it with olive and green by using a sponge.
