The blue bird is a 75C model (she has a Continental A75), the only one built by the factory. The prop blades are also blue and she has silver trim stripes. This old gal belongs to Bob Cable of Upland, California and is based at Cable Airport in California. She has a WWII history of performing coastal patrol along the West Coast. Her registration is NC34837, which is painted only on the tail, not the wings. She’s s/n 1657.
Welcome to our wee club for the skinny birds, Al! I hope you find plenty of photos in our archives to inspire your model building. I used to fly hot air balloons with a lass from Hamilton named Louise Boland and a bloke named Doug Sales...small world.
