Kit PD-10 Pearson-Williams 1938 Mr. Smoothie race plane is a laser cut balsa wood kit for the serious flying competitor. This Golden Age Racer qualifies for FAC Scale and Greve Racer competitions.

The 1938 National Air Race in Cleveland, Ohio was the site of the Thompson Trophy Race 300 lap/300 mile race. New aircraft entry the 1938 Pearson-Williams PW-1 “Mr. Smoothie” was designed around the Curtiss D-12 Conqueror engine by Rodney Nimmo capable of 375 mph and built by Bud Pearson and Lee Williams. The well-streamlined aircraft featured retractable landing gear, a tightly cowled engine and radiator installation. Cooling air entered through a truncated conical propeller spinner, swirled using propeller-rotated fan blades, passed through the radiator, and then exhausted via ports on the side of the engine cowling.

This free flight rubber powered kit includes a full-size rolled CAD drawn plan, building and flying instructions, hand sorted competition weight laser cut balsa parts and balsa strip wood, vacuum-formed canopy, exhaust, spinner, cooling port, landing bumps, and air scoop, Peck propeller, EBM thrust button, FAI SuperSport rubber motor, LaserCal™ registration and race markings cut out of metallic gold tissue + TissueCal™ for the Mr. Smoothie logo and small tail registration numbers, and Easy Built Tissue in red. You will need a hobby knife, fine sandpaper, building board, and glue.

"Guys, sorry to say Jim (Flying Models photographer) showed up to take pictures and speechless all I could do was point to the sky. I had unintentionally lost my Mr. Smoothie only minutes before his arrival in an official flight. It was last seen heading SW and climbing strong when it went out of sight at 4 minutes and 33 seconds. Great model, no one ever seems to be able to keep one around long enough to take a picture of. Subsequently, I managed to lose my Chambermaid a few hours later but then found it over on the next farm staring at some water from a branch over the stream that evening." - Dave Mitchell

"Here is a shot of the Mr Smoothy completed, and some during construction. As you can see it has an undercart, partly because some UK competitions require ROG [rise off the ground], and partly because the real aircraft never flew with it retracted. The U/C is unplugable, and it has flown in a competition at Oxford Port Meadow where it did OK until the motor burst on it’s second flight, luckily without damage." - Lindsey Smith
