Qantas Award PresentationBest Exhibit/Tribute to the Role of Aeromodelling in Aviation History
The highlight of the night and winner of the Qantas Award for "Best Exhibit/Tribute to the Role of Aeromodelling in Aviation History" had to be this superb model by Neil Hardiman (with Bob Hickman) of the Pusher Biplane built by John and Reginald Duigan in 1910/11, the first all Australian designed, built and flown heavier than air craft.
To our knowlege this is the first powered scale model of the Duigan pusher made since the original flew in 1910/11
more images to come.
