Looking forward to seeing progress on this one, Ernie. Amazing how a grail kit can move everything else down the list!

All I can say in response is that I really, truly love these overlooked subjects and making a model of them. Short of a 20 year restoration process, it’s the only way to physically represent a long lost aircraft type

Yes it sure can. This and the Fairchild 71C were both scratchbuild targets of mine. 
Both probably have just about the easiest to make structure imaginable. Square cross section fuselage and a tapered plank wing. 
 

Rhe landing gear will need to be soldered from brass, I expect

I’m still pondering the gear leg design, there are some tough resins on the market that may be worth trying. Or I could just go crazy and design the struts without fairings and have shapeways print them in metal all nice and strong. Might be a good experiment!
