FF-pages of old catalogues

For a start, four FF-pages scanned from Wentzel's catalogue of 1950.
As you can see, the Swedish post war scene, consisted of domestic as well as imported designs...

Aeromodeller designs did feature a lot in this plans catalogue.

However, does a plan for the Fantom exist, Bosse? I kind of like twin fins on models.

Hi, try it once at a Aeronaut dealer. Eggenweiler and Aeronaut are identical.

Because no one has a couple of nice old catalog pages? Have a look in your bookcase.

Aah....the Frog "Raider" in your top left pic raises memories (!) as this was my first "real" model aeroplane...
It must have been around 1954, or even slightly earlier...

I can clearly remember the pressed cardboard fuselage, and as I recall, it flew great.
My Raider finally met its destiny by landing on the roof of my granny's two storey house, sliding down in the gutter, and we did NOT manage to salvage the plane before the rain came......imagine what happened with that cardboard fuse etc......
Although so long ago, I still have a clear memory of this....

Thanks for posting !
