Ben first saw the Long Cabin flying on a visit to one of the Walsal MAC meetings in the mid 1980's and there he also met Ray Harrison who had built it. Ray and Ben became good pals and Ray became one of Ben's builders and built many of the models on the box labels.
The Long Cabin is a 1947 'Airtrials' design and has a light wing loading for a nice 'floaty' glide and also a flat bottom wing section which enables it to handle fairly windy conditions.
The Long Cabin kit includes pre cut wing ribs, tip shapes and formers, balsa strip, sheet and block parts, undercarriage wire, glazing, hardwoods and dowel, a hardware pack and full size plans. Everything needed to build the basic airframe of the model.
