Larry Kruse called Tom Hallman’s Peanut Scale FF model of an Airco DH-2 “arguably the most perfect Peanut Scale model ever produced.” Extensively researched and detailed, the model won the Walt Mooney Award for the best Peanut Scale model at the 2000 Flying Aces Club Nationals. Since 2000, the model has continued flying, first powered by rubber, but then by CO2, and later electric.
Watch the final flight of the DH-2 on September 14, 2014 on YouTube.
