Burnelli RB-2 (must see!)

This is the cargo version of the plane (RB-1) with which Vincent Burnelli reduced the lifting-body principle to practice in 1921.  TheBurnelli RB-2model was built by Alan Heim in 2000 from plans he drew from photos and three-views he obtained from the Smithsonian Archives Division. Even if the RB-2 is not something you are planning to build, his outstanding work is a MUST SEE!
