Before I upload what is probably the last of my plans and articles that fit the pre-1960 cut-off date, I'd just like to mentiion a little blurb from the Dec Model Aviation about the late Bill Northrup indicates that his wife, Anita, is still sellling all the former Model Builder plans. She can be reached at 702-869-2162 from 1 to 5 PM PST.
Heres the offerings I have.
I thought that even though the ad repro from a SAM Speaks, the old 1959 MAN article about electric FF, probbly the first Electric that I read about that didn't use a tether to a power cord might have some interest to somebody out there.

Re the Vic Smeed glider Golden Wings, as requested I did in the end get a couple of versions arrive at 600dpi both arrived together - thanks to GeeW and RogerClark - so here now is the result as a full-size pdf. It still has hatched lines in the background, so it is a bit hard to read and will waste a lot of ink when printed. To be honest I would go with Hogal's frankly better CAD version, if I was about to start building this one.

Thanks for the info about Anita Northrup and the MB plans. I have bought several and wanted several more. Now might be the time to act.

Wow! The 18.5 inch span Tri-pacer by Berkeley Models shown back on pg 9 of this string was the very first model airplane I made back in 1958! Thanks so much for posting it. Much Nostalga! I still have the Pee Wee motor.

HELP, HELP,HELP.
This my second call for help for the following plan. Been wanting to build this model for years.
After trying for many years I just managed to get hold of a side-port Micron- Meteore 0.9cc diesel.
Does anyone out there in "planland" have a full-size plan of "LE METEOR" that they can post so that it can be downloaded and printed???????
This was a free-flight plan published by Micron Meteore Moteurs in their catalogue. It was designed for their "Meteore 0.9cc" side-port diesel.
It is a "pylon type" with straight dihedral wings,twin rudders,fair size sub-rudder. Maybe a semi-profile fus.
Thank you.

I agree with you Up&Away, The Wolf is at the top of my build list. I have already enlarged the plans to full size though for the life of me I can't find it right now. I am in the midst of moving and my whole world is in caos. But soon
I plan to use the Spectrom ''Brick'' from my Parkzone Ember for control

Are you going to keep the profile as per plan? According to some old, old pictures of the real Wolf it seems to have had a more flat bottomed wing, less dehidral, and ailerons.
The plan gives a 30" wingspan. I was thinking of enlarging it to 45", add ailerons, and change the plan profile to a flatter bottom one (clark y-ish?)

On the origional glider the top of the wing was flat.The aorfoil was a highly undercambered Goetingen, Clarke Y would probably be a good choice for a model. If you use ailerons on your model the flat wing would be OK. I plan to keep it very simple and light so I will need dehidral to control bank.The Ember radio I am thinking of may be to small. My idea is to keep it very very light so the control forces will be light. Still needs more thought. I have some really excellent drawings of the real glider but alas in my present moving caos I can't find them.
