Once the plans become available, perhaps this time next year, I propose we consider a "Lutman Design Build Contest", with participants making a RC conversion of one of the plans similar to the FF to RC Contest currently ongoing in the "Balsa Builders" forum. The build logs and photos of 15 to 20 planes would be a fitting legacy to the Lutman Family. Perhaps Charles would consider autographing a photo of his grandfather's Flying Machine, as a prize.

What's wrong with genuine F/F versions being included ?

Not a thing.... I'm just focused on RC at the present... and my bias sneakily entered my thinking.

I have a copy of the MS Wasp or Hornet plan (can't remember which but it's the biplane). I've had it a few years but haven't got around to building. It's a lovely looking design that would be relatively involved to build for such a small model. The plan shows more "scale" detail than many larger true scale models.

BTW Charles I'm a member of Tranwell club which I'm sure you will be well aware of.

Still works for me and I still input plans posted here but that has been pretty slow for a while.

The link from the main page is about 2/3 of the way down the
http://www.outerzone.co.uk/
page and takes some scrolling but Vinplandex is still there.

MAN Dec 1942 Schweizer TG-2

Here are some scans I took from the December 1942 issue of Model Airplane News. In it they had a nice article and set of drawings for a Schweizer TG-2 Training glider, by Earl Stahl. Page format is 8.5"x11.5", the drawing was printed as sfull sized in the magazine. Since I had to reduce my scans considerable (huge file sizes), I'm not sure yet how much these would need to scale up, but then it might be nicer to have a model with a span bigger than just 29" or so. The article didn't mention anything about the gliders dimensions.
Maybe one of the pros here can join the plates together to create a seamless plan? A 175% enlargement (to 50" or so) might be nice.
I've also scanned the article - but I lost the last page - 4 - while resizing (which had a few paragraphs about flying and launching with a rubber powered towplane). I will rescan that page and include it here later.
There was another nice model in this issue called the "Flying Yankee" by Sal Taibi. It is a pylon wing mount type model - mostly I'm not fond of these types of models but this one looks like a nice design and I will also post these later. I never thought it woudl be such an ordeal scanning and editing the pages. I need to find a better way to do this, as I've got a few older magazines I want to scan and save.

Outerzone sometimes seems to get congested. I suppose Steve (WMD) doesn't have unlimited funds to buy unlimited bandwidth

If you cannot get through, try again later.

hello friends,

I've done this research here, but I start again
I search the Svenson Channy plan, my first remote control airplane.

Thank you!

Morning, chaps. Er, yes I am indeed still here. We are still here. And adding plans daily, as they come along. What was it Mark Twain said? ...the reports of my death have been geatly exaggerated

Your every wish is my command!
Attached is the Stahl plan enlarged to 52 inch wingspan. At 52 inches, you will have to do a bit of engineering to make it strong enough.

For those interested in a scaled up Stahl TG-2:

And the short kit (kind of expensive )

Does anyone happen to have a scan of a Civy Boy 24, 31 or 36? Any one of them would do.
I've got the 74" version but want to build a small one.
