    Roy Clough was known for the oddball model or two. It would be interesting to test against a regular Pou. I was interested in the ship model ad. My best friend from grade school had that model. Boy it was cool.

    The date on the article is 1963. Hasn't there been a number of Pou designed since then, with improved performance?

    Definitely, there had been a number of better Fleas before ‘63 too. Seems to me like they were going for something a little more sporty looking for the US market, probably intended as plans in Mechanix Illustrated or something.
