Ace Whitman Air King plan, a 24in span free flight rubber by Ace Whitman kit

Another oldie! Can anyone tell me when this one came out?

Its the Ace Whitman Air King, a 24in wingspan cabin-type free flight duration rubber model once kitted by Ace Whitman. This plan came to me in tatters pasted down to some taped together typewriter paper. It was a MESS! It took me a week to scan and restore it. The plan paper was that old newsprint like Comet used to have way back in the 1940s. It turns brown and crumbles with age. Looks like a flier though!

Use the .PDF version to build from. Have fun!

I believe 1951. Nice work with the plan - all I've managed to obtain are 8.5x14 photocopies off a well used drawing. Attractive model.
