Flyig Flea

Recommended Posts

Our club was supposed to have an April Fool's contest at the April meeting. It was meant to be a fun activity. After checking my stash, I decided to build the old Aeroclub kit of the Flying Flea. It was simple (5 plastic parts, 5 white metal parts) and I figured that I could build it in a month. After checking it out, I decided that it did not look enough like a flea so I made some additions. Here is the result.

Note - I would have gone crazy if I had tried to build this to scale. All photos of the real Flying Flea on the net seem to be different plus the top wing is attached at a single point ahd then held in place by wires.

 

Also, I don't know why I did it, seeing how this was just for fun, but I added a PE seat and an instrument panel to the model.

This is a cute little bug(ger). Did it fly off with an award?

That's the kind of model that would bug me to build. But I might be itching to give it a go. I hope it wasn't a dog of a kit.

 

Looks good. Great idea,
