Rearwin Cloudster Instrument Trainer - FAC Dime Scale



The story of the Rearwin Cloudster goes back to 1938. The Rearwin Sportster, a two passenger tandem seated aeroplane, had been successfully sold and the company wanted to capitalize on its success. Rae Rearwin was reluctant to produce another two passenger side-by-side aeroplane as he felt the disadvantages of extra drag outweighed the sociability of the side-by-side design. Ken Rearwin convinced him that the fashion was moving away from tandem-seated aeroplanes and Rae agreed with the new design. The first Cloudster was finished in time for the 1939 Cleveland Air Races and was flown there by Ken Rearwin.

This kit is a 1:25 scale flying model. It was designed by Flying Aces Club co-founder, Dave Stott and is eligible for Flying Aces Club Dime Scale events.

This free flight rubber powered kit contains a full-size rolled plan, building and flying instructions, printed balsa and hand sorted balsa strip wood, clear plastic for the windshield, rubber motor, E-B propeller, EBM thrust bearing, wheels, wire, and black and yellow Easy Built Lite tissue. To build this model you will need a building board, hobby knife, fine sandpaper, and glue.
