Kakadu

Hi Guys

I was looking at the 50year anniversary edition of RCM&E and saw that the very first plan they published was in the May 1960 was a little bipe called the Kakadu which was a design by Karl Heinz and was reproduced from the German Modell Magazine.

Does any one out there have a copy of this plan?

Cheers

Marc

Apparently it was a model built long ago and the person would like to recreate it if at all possible.

Thanks,

The Aeroflyte Kittyhawk design went through a few incarnations. It's not a difficult plan to get, it's available for about $10 from the Australian 'Peter White's' plan list See: http://www.vicstunt.com/Plans/Plans-List.htm

Otherwise a post on the UK Barton C/L site might turn up a scan from one of the Australian members.

Thanks Ray,

Unfortunately that doesn't quite look like it. They are showing a span of 36 inches, and the corner scrap of the plan that the person still has clearly shows 34. I will contact them though, to see if the numbers are wrong and also try the Barton site.

Piper PA-6 Sky Sedan

Hi out there: This is a great discussion thread. I am looking for drawings of the Piper PA-6, it first flight was 1944 and only 2 were built. It was the first Piper to have retracts. There are pictures of it on the Internet. I think that AMA has an old plan by John Pound, but I would like to see a drawing before purchasing any plans.

Been watching this site with pleasure for the past few months. Have found some time to scan a T R Kennedy plan for the Hawker Demon and which was kitted by the Model Shop in Newcastle.

Why on earth have you reposted the plan. All you had to do was add a link to the original post. Only repost plans if there is an upgrade or a tiled plan has been stitched together otherwise it just makes work for the guys who maintain the plan index. The black/grey background is as the original appeared in the magazine. Probably the plan as sold was a blueprint. I have several of these. The plan is perfectly build-able. The only way to clean up the background is to erase the background bit by bit in Photoshop or similar program. Planeman has done this on several plans with lots of spots on the background but I doubt if even he would take on a task like this.

Having seen my post online I felt it seemed as though I was having a go at you. This was the last thing on my mind I was trying to guide you in the right direction as it helps us all. Some on here are still on dial up and do not want to download the same plan time and time again. Repeats do happen as none of us are infallible (well I am not but there may be one of two who are) if you do check with the plan index its worth noting that some early posts were jpg only and virtually unuseable so these would be well worth posting should you come across one. So apologies for any offence caused it was not intended.

Little Vagabond was the first power model I built poorly I guess, at age 12.
Had an ED Mk2 Penny Slot in it. Flew, but not well.

Built another properly about 15 years ago with a Mills 1.3 that flys really well....it needs the DT or would be long gone.
Guess it's a bit of an ugly old thing, but I feel it does have some character about it.

Uhhhh....don't have drawings but I did have a ride in one once at Lock Haven and I have old 35mm color slides of the event. Just thought anybody might want to know that.

I do happen to have in my possession the engineering drawings to convert a J-3 Cub to the TG-8 training Glider. PM if interested. Might take a few weeks to find them.

Little Vagabond Plans

Hi Gang
I had originally said the Aeromodeller Vagabond plans I have are for the Cox Pee Wee 020 engine thats not so sorry to have mislead. the one that I have has a wing span of 32'' and shows a small diesel engine installed on the plans. I have built many other small old timers of this size for the Cox engines and loved the way thay would fly real floaters. so I guess in my mind I always looked it this plan thinking build this little beauty as lite as possable and modified it for a Cox engine (I have never been able to get diesel model engines to run right for me) and alas I still have enough little Cox's on hand to last me 3 life times so guess I was just writing down my 2 cents worth on how I would build it when I made out that list of what plans I had on hand
