Wasp.

Do you guys remember this Wasp that was discussed here I think a few weeks ago?
I can't seem to find the thread where it is and I fancy building it.

I would need a plan at original size and confirmation of it's age....i.e. When it was designed and first flew. Quite happy to pay or perhaps swap something.

I did look at purchasing the kit that was up for grabs in Canada, but cost of kit and postage made it not worth while, even as the seller suggested.

I did at least keep a pic of it.

Thanks.

That's it. Thanks. But who can do a copy of the plan please?

Looks like it has inset spars on the wing. Bit of a shame, but not to worry.

Shouldn't be hard to find a plan, a quite popular model. Easybuilt now kit it.

Hi, That's a pretty little model. Reminds me of the Thermal Thumber that I built a few years ago.

Yes it is as is the Playboy Jnr. Those models from the late '30s early '40s look much the same as that's what flew well.

Don't have TT plan but know it, (I think it's on Outerzone and have seen one here.) but do have Playboy Jnr. plan and I'm tossing up what engine to put into it?????
Perhaps a CS Tiger???.....Would rather not take the chance on losing my real Tiger.
As long as it's pre. '57 it's all okay for our Vintage Power.

Wasp engine????? Maybe Green Head Torp.19????
