Kit: Unknown (1:4)
To make a long story short, a man in England started this 1:4 scale
radio-control SE5a but passed away before finishing it. His brother-in-law
had to help settle the estate and find a good home for this model. The
brother-in-law knew nothing about airplanes and was searching the internet
to identify what type of plane it was. He contacted me by email after coming
across my photos of an SE5a on a website. After many emails back and forth
we agreed to split the freight and he crated it and shipped it to me. The
intention was for me to finish it after I was done with the Salmson. Neither
of us dreamed it would be another two years before I finished the Salmson.
I've never worked with a big R/C model like this, so I'm at a loss to know
what to do with it. There are no drawings, no wheels, no prop ... only what
you see in the photo. I do have quite a bit of reference material and a
fondness for SE5a's. Suggestions would be welcome.
