The WACO aircraft company designed a S- series of small passenger aircraft manufactured from the 1935. Several variants were developed. The YKS-7 had a four seat closed cabin layout including the pilot and usually a Jacobs L-5 engine.
Max speed was about 230 km/hr and wing span 10,13 m and a length of 7,7 m.
This YKS-7 dates from 1937 and has gotten the registration TF-öRN and has c/n 4683. This splendid aircraft was seen in Iceland at the aviation museum at Akureyri.
(note: the registration TF-ORN was used by several aircraft).

Several odd scale wooden models were released a long time ago.
A plastic scale model of the WACO YKS serie is only a 1/72 kit from Khee Kha Art from 2007.
