The fusillage is an old chair leg. the wings are the lid of an epson printer, the tail just plastic, the skids some old 1/32 track, and the engine half a cork with bits of lollystick stuck in. Not a beautiful model but fine for the landing strip behind the chateau!

Terrific!

I thought you were making that up, until I 'googled' it:

Edit: Of course there are numerous old postcards relating to this on Delcampe; I searched for 'hanriot avion' and found some superb ones!

Needs a touch more vertical stabilizer, but otherwise one of the best pieces of flying furniture I've ever seen.

BTW, in case you're fancying mass production, I have two old Epson printers here.

Corks for rotary engines eh? I've suddenly decided I need 3 or 4 aircraft in my garden, I just need to go out and buy, then drink the contents of the cork-holders...
