This picture was taken at the Waveney Model Flying Club site on the concrete of the old Ellough airbase about 1975. This was Graham Wilkes' first model and it was a shoulder wing trainer. Unfortunately he can't recall the name of the kit but it did it's job well even after one or two "prangs"....hence the multicolour finish

He recalls that it was powered by an Enya 35 and control was Skyleader.
