Great story, George and some similarities with mine.

I first saw jets flying at Fairlop - how fast the interested crowd scattered when it lit up!

One of the club members later produced the APS 'Jet Trainer' with a Juggernaut atop of it and we met at our usual flying spot - Enfield Playing Fields - one warm, still, Sunday afternoon. That was back in the days when there were such afternoons - often.

No starting problems but after the one and only flight the parkkeeper arrived on his bicycle and earnestly entreated us to desist from further activity. He was actually a little more blunt with his request than I'd care to relate here.

Cycled hoime for tea later .. I'd guess over 1.5 miles from the field through suburbia and - as with you - Mother commented on the strange sound earlier that afternoon .. like a ship siren blowng. I, too, kept silent ......

Hot Canary

Here's a full size PDF plan I worked up and the article for "Hot Canary", a Dyna-Jet powered circle burner designed by Herb Davis and originally published in January 1952 Air Trails. Air Trails Classic Flying Models Volume One, Number One was the source for these scans.

Yes, it is my design. No I have not. It made many short ( a few seconds) flights the last one the welded seam on the combustion chamber opened. Much later I had it repaired and tried to run it on our "California" auto fuel and could not get it to run. I got some Aviation gas and it started right off.

Eut,

That contraption sitting next to your design in the second pic is interesting...I have an identical one sitting in my shop...I was wondering if anyone else had ever bought one and still had it...have you ever flown it (the cox Hang-glider (can't remember the name of it))?

Have a Blessed Day!

Looking for this one.....at a modest 45" or so, it is a design called 'Bulldozer'and appeared in the Model Airplane News in May 1945. does anyone have the article that they could scan and better still would anyone have the plan for this little cutie?

I reckon it would make a fabulous park flyer 'electrified'.

Regards

Does anyone have the infamous Heinkel He.111?? How about another British bomber - the Halifax or Stirling?
Anyone have some Japanese land based bombers to offer the group?

Thanks everybody! We are closing in on the 2,000 downloaded plans mark real soon

Regarding my earlier post, I have established that the Halifax plan I once had (and lost!) was indeed by M. Bodey. He appears to have made multi-engined model designs a speciality with models such as the DC3, Handley Page Halifax VII, F27 Friendship, Lockheed Neptune, Northrop P-61 Black Widow, Avro Shackleton and one I always lusted after...the Vickers Viscount 701 how resplendant that one would look in BEA Livery!

I am sure many others would also hope to see some of these wonderful designs once more 'emerge' at some point in the future.

Regards

Yes, I did fly it quite a bit a long time ago with an OS .15. I may put an electric motor in and fly it some more.

Not sure how you dl'd it but if you dl just the thumb nail, it is low res....if you click on it and dl the actual size it turned out very good....at least good enough for me to put into Acad and come up with a very nice plan.
