It's not glass and foam but here's one from RCM.

I have a set of plan's and the original issue with the article I think that plane can still rock. I think about building it once in a while.

Hi Prodjx Going though some old photo's of my father flying days came across it ask if he had the plan, no was the answer.
So i'd try and find one build one, race one

Interested in a complete, slightly rough, one?

I think either the AMA or MAN plans service has the plans.

Ok here's what it look's like, they are out of a 1 973 issue of RCM. A friend known as Paul the destroyer had a model called the Twister which used the same wing and he asked if I would give it it;s maiden slope flight off "A" mountain and after I got it trimmed I gave him back the Tx and told him to keep it about a 100' out or so till he got used to it and within a minute it was a pile of balsa rubble in the parking lot, some people just don't listen.

Ah , the ole Ridge Runner !! had one back then with a glass fuse that I got from a guy at the races at Davenport. I made it with foam core wings and a V tail. Really liked that plane , I wore out several wings with it I still have the prints for it , all marked up and in pieces .

Mine has what appears to be a polyester fuse, and a foam core wing that was routered out like a Hobie Hawk. The wings could stand to be recovered, but it wouldn't take much to get it in the air.
