Re: OS Gemini 160 Twin Troubles

It has a 90" wing and is 69 " long. It is a 1/4 scale replica of Bob's own Murphy Rebel which he of coarse built himself. Here is a pic of the full scale and the model.

Re: OS Gemini 160 Twin Troubles

My wife and I go to a lot of fun flys and float flys and my hope is to be taking this around with me. The control surfaces are fabric covered just like the full size.

Re: OS Gemini 160 Twin Troubles

Our local EAA chapter built a Rebel so I thought I recognized the structure.

Only difference is yours uses the early gen landing gear.

Re: OS Gemini 160 Twin Troubles

That's not a spare fuse....it's a 1/4 scale Zenair 750.
