Dave.

Hurricane (cardboard) by C Felton, Model Builder Oct 1988, page 12, it is a control line model.

Here's a few more. The Cloudster I haven't seen posted before. The Smarty I scanned and posted on another thread a few years back. As for the Radio Rodger and the Texaco Miss America, I believe I got those from Dave Fritzke's site many years ago. Anyway, I've got lots of stuff I've scanned that I need to convert, just need to get to it!

I am wondering if anyone out there has plans for a De Havilland DH.89 Dragon Rapide, I don't really need a particular size or plan, but I will be scaling it to 24" span for the AR6400 receiver brick. Thanks, Fred.

Hi Fred. If you follow the link from post#1 on page#1 to the index then enter 'Dragon' in the search box, you can see there's a Rapide on Page 429 at post 6426.

Fist off, thank you Rat Racer for posting the nice plans. I took the liberty of separating a few of the double plans so it would be a little easier for people to print separate files. Of course, I selected the ones I liked best! Anyway, I can separate more if requested.
Thank you again Rat Racer for the nice plans!!

I've been hoping to see some Hobby Helper's plans show up. Especially the P4M-1 Mercator. Been wanting to build one for decades. Know a couple locals did build them, said they come out heavy, better be close to the ground when the engines quit.
I have several plans from HH, main problem I see with them, several plans partially printed over several pages, very mixed up sometimes. Wish I still had access to the facilities at my former place of emplouyment.

Not Hobby Helpers but still cool

The Enterprise Shadow copyright 1949 (I built this one over 30 years ago as a kid and was a little rough on the plans)

Lockheed Orion from the Aircraft Plan Co. copyright 1947 by Paul Plecan

Ratracer, Maybe not the very best scans but better than most and can easily be cleaned. It looks like you have spent some time at a print shop having all of these wonderful plans scanned. Thank you very much for sharing.
