Another in my “Cloudbusters” series of kits. This one, the Tweety Pup, was designed by Don Campbell of the Cloudbusters and published in the Cloudbusters newsletter in 1997.
The Tweety Pup was designed as a play on the Cessna O-1 “Bird Dog”: Tweety = Bird and Pup = Dog. The layout is not even Stand-Way-Off Scale; it only has a passing resemblance to the Bird Dog, but this is enough to make this Embryo more scale-like than most. The changes to “scale” that Don made make the proportions of this good for Embryo.
