Rearwin Speedster -
FAC Dime Scale|
The Rearwin Speedster was a beautiful airplane with the unlikely
combination of speed, fuel efficiency, safety and stability. This
1934-37 sport airplane is a great subject for modeling. Even when
accurately built to scale, it makes a superior flying model.

and Former method of construction. Pre-1942 design, eligible
for FAC Dime
Scale and Society of Antique Modelers (SAM) contests.

"Here are a couple of pictures of this little model. It is built essentially per the kit except I used white tissue for the windows, light gray for the rest. It flys pretty good. Straight as an arrow. Even though I pinned it down, the shrinking tissue pulled the wings into a slight dihedral which may make it more stable." John Pinette
Balsa Model Airplane Kit, Balsa flies better.
