The original model was designed and built by Hans Schmiterlöw during the winter 1940. It was equipped with a geared propeller driven by three separate rubber motors, using a commercially available "Hawker Hart" gear box. In addition, it had a retractable landing gear and a foldable propeller.

In 1941, the design was modified for the new Swedish M1 class. The gear drive was dropped, the wing was placed above the fuselage on a cabane, among other changes. A plan was drawn for the magazine "Teknik för Alla", but was never publised.
