Wimborne MAC member Jon Tappin giving his Curare pattern plane a flight after some mods. This model has retracts, tuned pipe and 55 glow motor. Jon built this classic pattern plane for a review for RCME. Up until this time it had mainly been forgotten. This plane rekindled the love for pattern planes at the Club. 

Update  2021:  These ARFs are still available but the price really has rocketed since this model and my Curare E back in 2016.  In fact to buy it now from the dealers in Austria allowing for retracts, engine or motor, servos and ancilliaries would make it virtually a £1000,  60 size plane!
