Anyone recognise this old model, Engine 1955.
This is my build of the Veron Cardinal, using the remains of the original as a guide. This was my first model, a birthday present in 1955. Dad built and flew it and it was some time before I was allowed to play with it :) The engine is the original mills .75 which was supplied as free flight set up with cut out for a timer and still runs well.
The original left the field in Dollingstown and headed of towards Lisburn in around 1957. It returned some months later, a nice couple had found it in their garden and brought it back ( Yes I'd put my address on it) :D
