MIKE ROACH’S SOPWITH AVIATION COMPANY

 

Westland Welkin

On my "must build" list for 20 years, I've twice failed to get it quite right.  This first effort was 60" span all built-up for 2 speed 400s, but the wing was not strong enough.  This version is 48" span all Depron for 2 GWS IPS motors, and has flown but is underpowered. My only successful Welkin is the little X-Twin free-flighter!
