I have read several times that these planes were not really transitional but were actually manufactured after the iron bodied planes because of the initial resistance of the old-timers to iron bodied planes "they were just really attached to their woodies" & didn't take a liking to all that iron. Anyway thats what I've read & heard it may be right or wrong I don't really know.
