Thanks DeeBee, if I do manage to build one I'll have to use that decor! Wonder what the colours were?

Looks like at least Tom Dixon lists it for sale. In Google search it says "Three photocopy sheets of the original larger winged Panther. Very rare plan. .35 to .40 engines. $15.00"

I try not to visit his site because of all the popup windows I get there.

Very funny Ray. I was hoping perhaps someone had seen the original in the flesh as it were. Mind you, it wouldn't have helped much if we did have colour TV then, judging by the quality of the first colour TV I saw some ten years or so later. I only realised it was supposed to be colour when the possee in the horse opera I was watching jumped up on their PURPLE horses!

The Outerzone plan is for a 16-inch 'dime scale' model, I didn't think that such a version existed. I am looking for printwood patterns for a one-meter-wingspan model, more or less.

Thanks for the help, everybody.

thanks for taking the time to collect them so you can post them, I like to read as many of the old guides that I can, lots of good simple designs, and lots of good information in them

Moby Dick

Hi all,
Iíve always liked the look of this plane and itís a bit ę special Ľ for me.
When I was a kid (around 1950), I used to gaze in wonder at all the planes in Aeromodeller that were light years above me in terms of both technical ability and financial means... For me, they must have been created by star designers who were aeromodelling Gods.
One of the planes that impressed me was this glider.
Then one day, I canít remember how or why, it dawned on me that the designer/creator of this beautiful plane (Eric Smith) was none other than the proprietor of the cycle shop right opposite my school. I can still remember my amazement today!
Anyway, I scanned the magazine plan at 600 dpi and sent it to Steve at Outerzone. Steve scaled the plan and cleaned it up, and the result is a really excellent plan that could be built from "as is".
The only minor problem is that the magazine plan covers two pages, so it needs a slight stitching job down the middle. So if some kind plan stitcher would just give this plan some attention...
Brian

Lovely model Brian. It would almost be worth building one just so that, when greeted at the flying field with the question "Moby Dick?" you could respond classically "No, it's just the way I walk!" Boom-boom!

G'day all. I know there are other places for these type of pics but I built both Buzzards from plans I found here so take a look.
I know the 72" was built from plans posted by Scott Backen and I think the Baby Buzzard plans were from this forum.
The big one is OS 48 powered, JR radio and a gentle Sunday flier.
The little one is 36", Futaba radio and just 14ounces with 2 cell 750Mah LiPo and small Hobby City bell motor.

Both fly just beautifully. Thanks to everyone that posts plans on this forum.

Its the English language barrier, caused by a major expanse of water (known as the Pond)....

"Dhobi" (aka dobie): immigrant washer woman

"Mick": Derrogatory means of referring to One from the Emerald Isle.

And, I am ashamed to admit, I find the play on words rather hilarious!
