Cool carbon F1A parts made by Allard van Wallene . Made with titanium coated spread tow carbon. Questions on why and the advantages. Answer – who cares it looks really cool.

Way back when I first started aeromodelling in the 60s one of the guys in the Club, John Crombie always had the cool stuff and an ‘advanced’ sense of humor, just like Allard. They were both in the patent business, must be the effect of the crazy inventors they meet.
