All,
Pics of our Cekoadon.
I think we will scale it up some more to 40" with MVVS 2.5cc diesel. There were some issues but it's ok now.

The colour scan (which was 'loaned' to me by a German friend) is best - as mentioned by vintage1 in post #2004 - but the .pdf of that image is 'HUGE' - at 4.53 MB, and so it cannot be uploaded here.

I have therefore made a .pdf from the black-and-white option - which is considerably smaller !

Keven.
Thank you very much for the pdf on the "Taxi"It was my very frist r/c plane(in 68).I an really interested in a build so your plans will be of great help. Port.

Thank you but I like to exchange plans through the web between friends and I never build from kits.

This morning I revised my post #10409 of the WESTWIND to reflect a wing span of 38".
The article does not state it's span. Steve (WMD) found some information this morning from the vintage rc society stating 37.5". My decision of 38" was based on a 6" wing chord and 2" rib spacing and then the material sizes agreed with the scan. Even the tip measurement of 5/8" agrees. Would like to get this file as accurate as possible. Thanks.

Does anyone have the PDF of the "SMALL TALK" ?
Thank you in advance.

Neat Shrimp. I'll bet a good chunk of that weight was nose ballast.

If you ever get the urge it would make a nice electric FF using one of the PZ micro motors.

VTOL - Vertical takeoff and landing control line model designed by Allyn Aldrich from the June 1955 issue of Model Airplane News

Check out the homemade throttle control on that old Fox 19 engine pretty cool.

Very cool, I can see the take off, but the landings would need a lot of skill and a fair slice of good luck cake too!

If anyone out there has the October 1959 issue of American Modeler, would you please scan the entire article on the Dainty Dolphin for me? I downloaded the plan, but it only has the first page of the article with the plan and the very beginning of the text. Thanks!
