Beautiful model, Jim. Very solid construction. With that massive frame and the hydraulic controls, it would have needed all twenty cylinders and would have had a very high wing loading.

I take it that this is the Vic Stanzel, brother of Joe, of True Scale Ornamental Models fame who also invented "G-line" and "mono-line" u-control flying.

Tonight, I will raise a glass to you, the Stanzel Brothers, the Shark, and the First of April.

Keep 'em flying, Buddy!
