Must be a reflex to type Parnall Pixie. In this case, it's the Parnall Elf, isn't it?

Thanks for the Cumulus

DeeBee1: Thank you so much for the link to the cumulus. Now hear is the rest of the story about the one I built when I was nine (1948) I never flew it for lack of a proper engine. But I gave the wing to my cousen who's father had made a Zipper fusalage and tail. We added my wing to that and took it out to the airport to fly it. It went stright up real high. Then it turned around and came stright down real fast and hit us both. That was the end to that story.

Thanks for the story Newtmagick. Sounds like the plane was trimmed pretty well if it came right back to you! Let us know if you build the Cumulus

It is a large model and the plans were printed over two sheets . In the magazine there were superimposed and impossible to scan for a worth while plan to build from.

Algy or Aeromeddeler,

Would it be possible to get a copy of the article on the Tiger Moth, from the March '72 issue of AeroModeller, and does anyone know where plans for it might be available for purchase or download? Thanks in advance!
Have a Blessed Day!
George

Finally there were a couple of requests for the HAROLD TOWNER build article for his super scale TIGER MOTH from my previous post of the MARCH 1972 issue. Here it is.

The cover photo is not a Photoshop fake but Don KNIGHT holding aloft his greatly enlarged Renaut based design of 1939. Has two fourteen strand motors. A 20 inch prop with a gearbox. Span is 102 inches and it weighs in at 47 ounces It was the subject of an article to be found inside.

Not enlarged ... built to the published plan
Any chance of getting the article for the Renaut, and does anyone have the plans, or know where they may be obtained...a few minor changes and an electric, R/C conversion would be sweet!

Thanks in advance!
Have a Blessed Day!
George

PS Post is late because I just found this thread and have been making my way through it...great stuff! There's another giant rubber plane back aways from this one, shown on the cover of the May 1996 AM

Large elastic driven model

Hi George,
I can help you a little bit with a copy of the plan for L.E.D.M. based on the R.RENAULT design of 1939 built by DON KNIGHT.

DON greatly scaled up the plan he found in VIC SMEEDS book MODEL FLYING THE FIRST FIFTY YEARS.

It is only a tiny illustration in the book but I have scanned at the highest resolution I can on my copier (600 dpi) and maybe some one can enlarge it to the correct size and repost. The scale is given as 1” to 1 foot. I think all the details you need are on the plan.

If you ever get an opportunity to get a copy of VIC SMEED’S book snap it up and also his companion book FIFTY YEARS OF AEROMODELLER. They some times appear on EBAY. Hours of fascinating reading.

Best of luck.
Cheers

Algy,
You seem to have forgotten the third book in that series 'Favourites of the Fifties'.

All three are excellent browsers and well worth the 6 to 7 I paid for each of them when they were published in the late Eighties.

Here are the front covers for the two you've not shown.

Algy, Hogal,

thanks for the info and the files. I shall be watching for copies of these books...Algy, Whilst I understand the statement that the plane built by Knight was built from copies of the plans in Smeeds book, which had been blown up many times [from the size of the drawing in the book], the wingspan of the aircraft depicted in the drawing in the book is actually much larger than the plane Knight built...the drawing indicates a span of 103.5 inches, and if I can get the drawing sized accordingly, this will do very well for what I was wanting to build! I love the larger planes, but I also love the vintage old-timer free flight style planes converted to R/C and [hopefully] powered with an electric power system. Thanks again for all your efforts, both of you!

Have a Blessed Day!
George
