Scratchbuilt 1/72nd Renard R-17

(From the archives, model built in 2007)

With a Span of 9.2 meters and a length of 6 meters, this cute little plane was designed in Belgium to carry small perishable cargo in short hops. Its simple lines and somewhat funny proportions make it a very good candidate for scratch. It flew for a short time in 1931 and left us with a smart, chubby and stumpy appearance that is hard to resist.
The 20's and 30's of are a vast field of aviation glamour, populated with remarkable designs where you can find attractive, lesser known types that can widen the scope of your modeling subjects.
