The one on the top in this pic. is a Mini Concord, also powered by an OS 10 (which is what made me think of it!). Was given to me in the mid 70s, complete with rubber escapements on rudder and 'kick up' elevator. I think the model dates back to the late 60s, I stripped and re-covered the wings and tail to lose some weight (replacing heavily doped and painted nylon with film) ... flies really nicely with 3ch radio. It's a bit underpowered with the 10 but ROGs OK and is quite sleek ... so it's just the initial climbout that a little marginal. Rolls very axially on rudder only, and will fly inverted (but not for long - tinplate tank with fixed pickup!).
