Hint: This is the "short span" (23 meter) configuration. This one goes to 28.

Looks like a DB Concordia Ser. # 001. The balsa wood tail looks awesome.

The whole think is balsa wood. Its just a R/C model. If they gave it a better paint job it would look more realistic.

It's the Eta-Biter Biter.

Size Matters.

Holy Crap!

Correct! You guys are good. Now guess the aspect ratio.

I think the first digit must be a 4 or a 5.

Upon further inspection, I guess 57.2.

At 28 meters I can park the PW-5 beneath one wing and still have a bit of room to squeeze between my tip and the Concordia fuselage. Unfortunately, the shadow will only cover a portion of the chord of my horizontal stab.
