I think my model is lighter than original and wing span extended slightly from 36" to 40".
The one page of the article and the plan pages from Aeromodeller showed up here:

I wonder if this Beagle Pup article is the same one that Jack Headley had published in RCM and sold as one of their plans? The RCM plan is listed as being in one of their books from 1968 and this Aeromodeller article was also 1968 so it made me curios.
Do you know of any other RC struction articles that might have appeared over the years? I would have thought that the Beagle Pup would have been a more popular bird to model than what I have seen.
