The Farley Flutterbug
« on: April 26, 2020, 04:11:08 pm »
The legendary Farley Fruitbat is well known, but they also had some not so successful designs. In this instance I will attempt to build the Farley Flutterbug, a possibly license built derivative of the Westland Lysander. 'Possibly' refers to rumours that corporate espionage and blackmail may have been involved, but we won't go into the politics. These parts are from a previous abortive attempt by Todd 'Captain Canada' Pomerleau, who graciously donated the parts to me, along with a second Lysander kit.

A reminder for those colleagues who have temporarily allowed the famous Farley Fruitbat to have escaped their attention.

I await with  eager anticipation your rendition of this previously unresearched aircraft.
