Rearwin Cloudster Instrument Trainer - FAC Dime Scale
The story of the Rearwin Cloudster goes back to 1938. The Rearwin
Sportster, a two place tandem seated aeroplane, had been successfully
sold and the company wanted to capitalize on its success. Rae Rearwin
was reluctant to produce a two-place side-by-side aeroplane as he
felt the disadvantages of extra drag outweighed the sociability of
the side-by-side design. Ken Rearwin convinced him that the fashion
was moving away from tandem-seated aeroplanes and Rae agreed with
the new design. The first Cloudster was finished in time for the 1939
Cleveland Air Races and was flown there by Ken Rearwin.
Kit CA-01 Rearwin Cloudster Instrument Trainer is a 1:25 scale, flying
model. It was designed by Flying Aces Club co-founder, Dave Stott
and is eligible for Flying Aces Club Dime Scale events.
