1931 Babcock Taubman LC-13 – 36.5in wingspan


The Babcock Taubman LC-13 was an advanced light aircraft design for 1931.   This 36.5 inch wingspan Jumbo Scale model by top free flight scale designer and flyer Tom Hallman is a classic.  Colors and features that evoke the best of Aviation’s Golden Age combine with excellent free flight scale proportions to result in an outstanding flying model airplane.

Inspired by the landmark large rubber scale designs by Dave Rees, Hallman incorporates many of the unique features of Rees’ design ethos such as Structure Weights, etc.  Construction details and guidance is provided on the plan.

A full documentation package is included with purchase of the digital plan download, including a professionally colorized period photo.

Qualifies to fly in FAC Jumbo Scale and Golden Age Civilian  events.
