    Also found this. Not of the best quality but it may give an idea on how it is like.

    Those old Renwals are collector items. Worth hundreds of dollars.
    Go slow and carefully. They were famous for the accuracy of the "skeleton" of the old planes.
    I envy you for the chance to do one of these classics!
