Late summer 2015: After extensive research into the history of Peanut Scale models, museum volunteer Tom Hallman builds a 12″ Heath Parasol FF model airplane for the museum. Built from National Model Aircraft & Supply Co. plans, the Heath Parasol kit was one of the first produced as part of National’s Midget line.
Tom documented the process with the pictures below.
September 2015: Tom finishes the model, flies it and brings it to the National Model Aviation. Want to see it fly? Check out Tom’s video of the process.
For more detailed information relating to the National Heath Parasol, please read the “History Preserved” article in the March 2016 issue of Model Aviation.
Thank you, Tom, for helping to grow the museum’s collection!
