    Unfortunately Google.play insists on coming up in Kiswahili with no way I can find to change the language. Translated, it says, basically, we don't do this stuff for your country, so f**k off.

    The OP specifically said "1910"! The way this thread is going I am surprised someone hasn't suggested a F-117 replica.

    Nieuport II (2) (two). A sporty early monoplane built from 1910 to 1914.

    The Fokker Spin is the right vintage, looks easy enough to build (lots of flying models of it), and looks like it might fly pretty well.

    The Nieuport II and the Fokker Spider are on the lines of what I want to do.I've been eyeing a Fokker Spider build for a long time.Would not mind doing a Nieuport II though.

    Building the Nieuport II over the Spider would save you about $1,000 in turnbuckles

    The Fokker Spin turns with rudder; it does not use wing warping. There is a French design like the Nieuport II but it used ailerons and had a 3 cylinder Anzani radial not the fan motor. That is what I would build if I can remember the name. Very modern for 1910ish.

    Have you heard of the Flitzer? They have used VW's in them. It is not an actual replica, just a new designs that looks old to me. http://www.flitzerbiplane.com/

    Seems like it wouldn't be too hard to make a Flitzer look like a Sopwith Tabloid:

    The Tabloid came out just before the war. I don't recall what's different compared to the Sopwith Schneider, but the latter has floats.

    I've had my eye on the Flitzer for some time and would love to do one.I know this is 1920's but I am quite interested in this Czechoslovakian aircraft the BH-1.There's only one reproduction but I am fascinated with it.

    The Bordom Fighter is as simple as it gets. The A65 engine is actually cheaper than a VW. http://www.adap.com/
