Back in 1998, HiLine owner Dave Rees sent these photos of his latest project wearing four of the spoked wheels I was making at the time. The 1912 Plage-Court Torpedo II Monoplane is a Polish/German design. I don't have much else to offer, save that the model flew exceptionally well and shortly after its first trip to Geneseo he called me about getting a second set of my resin wheels for his next one.
