Jim Landon (
sent these scans of photos taken by Barry Stettler. Jim's description follows:
These are photos taken by Barry Stettler, of a Thomas Morse S4C Scout in a
museum in New Jersey. Barry sent the original 4 X 5 prints to Jim Landon to
help Jim with his model S4C. These photos formed the basis for certain details
on Jim's model, especially the stitches on the wings, the ultra high gloss
finish and the prop design. With Barry's permission Jim scanned them and sent
them in so everyone can enjoy them.

( email@example.com ) This aircraft is located
in Pershing Texas and is owned by Roger Freeman and is thought to be the last
flyable S4c in existence.
The owner, pilot, Roger Freeman has raised his hands to indicate that he has
turned off the ignition and it is safe to help with the ground handling of the
plane. The engine is a LeRhone Rotary with 80 HorsePower. it is extremely
tail heavy and in flight it needs to have the control column far forward just
to maintain level flight.
