"I note that there was a model constructed for this patent--I'd love to see that."

You can. Spalding actually made two models. The one that went to the US Patent Office, to accompany his patent application, still survives. A large colour photo of it can be seen on page 63 of the Time-Life book "The Road to Kitty Hawk" (ISBN 0809432609).

The second model was gifted by a Spalding descendant to the author Don Dwiggins. Photos of that model can be seen in Dwiggins' book "Man-Powered Aircraft" (ISBN 0830622543).
