A combined built-up-fuselage and stick-model by Nils Curry Melin (same wing and empennage, different fuselages). At the Swedish Championships in 1938, Curry placed first in class A1 (stick models) and third in A2 (built-up-fuselage models) with this model. Sven Wentzel, a fellow member of the model flying club Vingarna, offered it as a kit from his company "Wentzels". The original model had a geared propeller using a ready made gearbox from FROG, which explains the ovoid nose section. This gearbox was not included in the kits, and most models were probably built with a standard square nose section.

This model is still very popular among Swedish vintage flying enthusiasts.
