Dornier DO-17z "Flying Pencil" 1990?

This DO-17z called the "flying pencil" has a wingspan of 120", powered by G-23's. Scratch built retracts. Actually was one lousy design on my part. The vertical stabs were scale but too small. Attempted landings in one direction normally resulted a landing at least 90 degrees from that direction. At flying speed it handled ok but as soon as you slowed down it became a handful. Sold it to a doctor in Waukesha, WI who has it hanging in his hanger.
