    Hi all
    I found a simple card model of the Brewster SBN-1 scout bomber from pre WW2 and was wondering if anyone has built it? for whatever reason this plane appeals to me as does a French design Latecotiere 298 which is a floatplane and the Hansa Brandenburg floatplane from WW1.
    The Brewster looks simple and since I have never built a card airplane i though it might be fun? I'll add a pic of the parts sheet . It looks to be 1/72 scale.

    I love the airplanes from that era! Where did you find the model? I wouldn't mind having one myself. Show pix if you decide to build it!

    The model was on a freebie site, I can't remember where but there were only two pages It was made by a guy named David Siguenza in 2002. I have gathered other info but have never seen anything re: cockpit or wheelwells etc. I will try to post the 2nd page which is instructions in png format and if you or anyone here wants I cant e-mail them as an attachment.

    Lester, any luck on digging out those references? Plus, do you have any contact info for David? His project might be a good start for a collaboration to expand on his initial design and I'd want to pose that question to him. Thanks!

    Regards,
