    An interesting plane and a very nice looking model. I like the display base/diorama. I wonder how many passengers it carried? And what about that wheel/skid arrangement? Looks like that would have been a real handful to land.

    The writeup said crew of 4 (maybe) with a passenger load of 6 (perhaps). The skid/wheel landing gear was necessary dur to the unimproved fields' habit of springing and splaying the wheels.

    Laughing this much can't be good for me.
    The F was a single seater.
    Just how much can you hope to achieve on 35 HP ?

    A copy of the stick model plans so generously included by FG with the Avro F cardmodel may be obtained free from

    No comment from me, but I feel a surge of deja vue that might be shared by some pre-2004 members.

    Oh and the document package from the same page is also worth a look.

    Looks to me like Burnelli's lifting body aircraft weren't all that original after all -
    check out the airfoil section fuselage of the Avro.
