The Roland C.II Walfisch was one of the most advanced aircraft when it first appeared in March 1916. It featured a sleek, streamlined wooden fuselage that gave rise to its name of "Walfisch". Another novel innovation was the lack of cabane struts, instead the upper wing sat on top of the fuselage giving an uninterrupted view of the sky above.
The Mountain Models cartoon scale version of the Roland C.II Walfisch was designed using a state of the art 3D CAD package, to allow for exceptional laser cut interlocking parts design and fit. 3D design also provides clearer assembly images, without having to use photos.
The Roland C.II Walfisch, laser cut airplane kit, is built from self-jigging interlocking laser cut balsa and plywood parts. It's like a 3D jigsaw puzzle with instructions. Although not needed for building, full size plans are included for reference. If the instructions are read before hand and followed during the build, the Roland C.II Walfisch can be built up and ready to fly in only a few evenings.
