"As F.7 but booms and control horns are painted metal, not wood. Elevator control quadrant black metal - paint? Note elevator and rudder control wires led to center-rear interplane strut where pulleys convey them to the control horns. Throttle handle (or spark advance?) natural brass. Gas tank copper. Note interior painted white or pale gray. Undersurface of nacelle is clear fabric, attached to side walls with grommets over studs. Fabric portion of nacelle lashed to tubular framework at rear."

"The Longhorn can never be called pretty, but it was useful. An overall look, a view of the rear of the nacelle and a close up of the engine."
