Pictured is my EKW C-3603, designed by Bill Henn and covered with the last of my olive green JCI tissue. The model has now faded to a brown color due to many WWII sorties in bright sunshine.
Also pictured is an EKW C-36, 3-view.
I will get the 3-view enlarged to about 30" wingspan and see if I can talk Iron Mike into drawing a plan with that wingspan.
I will fund the lazer cutting to make it into a "Short" kit (You supply your own stripwood).
There is documentation (in color) on the internet...out the Gazoo!

Sound like a good idea???

A good looker.

Check out also C-3605, the turboprop version of the C-3603. Because the turboprop engine was much lighter the front part of the fuselage was about 6 feet longer. Might make an easy to balance plane  Wink
Have seen a peanut C-3605 in a magazine, don't remember what magazine and when...

And for those interested in the turboprop version, Don Strull flew one to many rubber scale wins and you can find it here:     http://www.outerzone.co.uk/plan_details.asp?ID=1430

I still have to say that's one strange looking bird. Saw one off to the side of an airport back in 2002 as I was taxiing a Cessna for departure. Pretty sure it was at Knoxville, but could have been at points west of there. Really caught my eye what with the wild color scheme, extreme proportions, and fading, peeling paint.

This is the ONLY aircraft that I have ever seen that has the rear peg installation shown on the full size 3 view. Check it out!

Modelace, I am following your thread with interest.

I have a book about the whole history of this aircraft. http://www.editions.ch/books-edition/books-online-shop/details/backpid/278/produkt/c-36-eine-schweizer-flugzeigentwicklung/
They where built in several versions. If you need a specific 3-view or color scheme, just pm me.
I work near a museum with two C-36 in display.
At least one turbo prop version is still flying in switzerland.

Roman,
Didn't you design and build one of these planes a while back.  I looked for the build thread but couldn't find it!

Hi Tom
Yes, I built the turboprop version (C-3605) "flying crosswalk" the tread wa on SFA. You will find some pics on the "went flying thread here on HPA. The plan is also in the plan section of HPA.
My version is only 16"... I am looking forward to see the big one.
