Aeromodeller free flight plans

Hi,
This time the month is DECEMBER and the year 1984 when taking a look at AEROMODELLER.
The cover shows Britannia Airways Boeing 767 with an offer of a free ride on their simulator.

The first free flight plan was for a nice 18 inch wingspan rubber powered scale model the WATERMAN GOSLING by A.J. TAYLOR.

The one and only ”Gosling” was designed and built in 1921 by WALDI Waterman and was actually sponsored by Cecil. B. DeMille. Yes the lights ,camera, action one.

Plan is full size and the construction article gives all the information you need plus how to trim for a scale flight pattern.

Next to the COMMET 11 for CO2 a mini replica of a popular vintage model from the 1930’s.

With it’s large fin and gangly undercarriage this is a very attractive subject. It was at one stage kitted by VERON and was designed by the then General manager of Veron A.E.BROOKS.

NOEL CRANE who designed this version said it is an endearing little model that flies well.

Finally one to build during the TV commercial breaks. Its’ a simple sheet balsa chuck glider by BILL BURKINSHAW. Some scrap balsa and a few slashes with a modelling knife will soon have the 767 in the air.


Cheers
