Aero Master II

Hi Scale people,
I have an Aero Master kit which I will build next year. My question is-Is the Aero Master scaled from a ful size or is it just a model bi-plane?

If it is the same one I bought years ago, thinking it was a SCALE kit, it is NOT.
I was advertised as IMAA Gaint Scale.
It is IMAA - big enough but not SCALE.

The Aeromaster and Aeromaster Too were the yardstick by which all Bipe kits were judged as far back as the late 1960s.
A giant scale kit was put on the market about six years ago but never seemed to catch on and is now defunct and lost in a sea of ARFs.
Although all these models were fine flying Bipes none of them were scale models of a full sized aircraft,although mods to something like a stand way off version of a great lakes might be possible.
The Lazy Ace series of Bipes by Chuck Cunningham fit in the same category.
There are still a few kits available of full sized Bipes (The Bucker Jungmeister by Arizona modelcraft comes to mind) but they are rare.
Kit cutter kits of a few famous bipes are available too.
Balsa USA have some stand off versions of WWI types too and a scale 1/3 Stearman that they produce on a limited basis.,and their 1/3 Pup must be mentioned too.
I have an ARF GP Christen Eagle I currently fly and have two more bipes under constrution and I remain a big fan of two wings and round engines.
The Planet is doing what it has always done.......floods,volcanic eruptions storms,
earthquakes.........but today there are more people in the way.
