Anyone know anything about the Consolidated Tarpon model from 1945?

We had a couple of these kits in the late 1950s. I do remember my dad building one, powered by an ignition engine, probably an Ohlsson, but I don't remember the size.

The Tarpon was a solid carved body with a solid wing. I do have a picture of one I found on the internet. Send me a pm with your email and I will send it to you.

It would be nice to find a kit to build, or scratch one if full size drawings could be found. I doubt the plans would have shown enough detail to scratch build from them.

I have recently joined and read your post. Did you get the information that you wanted ? I have this kit in my stash of controline kits.
