The Skyscraper


Description: Vintage Old-Timer (RC conversion)

Designed by Leon Shulman, the Skyscraper is a modern, electric version of the author’s free-flight model design that was published in Model Airplane News back in 1938. The new model uses simple blue fan-fold insulation foam for the majority of its construction. It is an easy profile model to build and it has excellent easy-on-the-pilot flight characteristics.
