A fine large scale R/C model of C-GXXL by Andreas Bischel (c) 27 June 2005
Received this note from Andreas when he sent the image;

Hello Mr. Aird,

in December 2003 I contacted you because of the photos of the Beaver No 1607 C-GXXL
You connected me with Bill Hann, who helped me with some good photos.
After 880 hours of working, my RC-Model (1:4,5) has been finished. I even took part at some competitions with it and  I was pretty succesful.

Thank you very much for helping me (although it's a little bit late!)

Best greetings
Andreas Bischel 15 November 2005
