Algy: If you hit the 'Edit' button at the bottom of the first post, you can delete the content. You have to leave summat in there, so most just put a couple of full stops.

Two excellent plans, by the way!

Another thing you could have done is Edit the original post and add the attachments there. I'm sure I've done that once or twice.

Some other forums also allow you to completely remove a post.

Thanks for the plans. They are both good lookers. I found out my self the other day when adding attachments that you can edit your first post and add attachments to it in the advanced mode. Then re-save the edited post and it will have the attached files in it. Hope that helps...

Aeromodeller free flight plans

Hi,
Back to the 60’s and the April 1961 AEROMODELLER. with the cover showing a Lockheed P2V-7 Neptune of the US Navy flying along the Californian Coast.

This was also C/L scale build article and plan to be found inside It has already been posted by Ray and can be found here. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...65873&page=353

Next going indoors and a very useful article on making Microfilm and build instructions and plan for a 35 cm class model designed by European Champion LEIF ENGLUND.

It won the 1960 indoor contest held in Helsinki, Finland. Leif said it is the ideal introduction to the fascinating art of Microfilm and capable of over 14 minuets.

This was followed by the B-70 VALKYRIE a “Low Budget” all sheet semi scale Delta for .8cc motors.

Designer BOB LYNN said the model will take a lot of punishment and give hours of fun flying.

Finally to AIRCRAFT DESCRIBED and the BLACKBURN AIREDALE a three seat Fleet spotter dating from 1926.

It has an unusual wing outline and would make a great scale subject for free flight.


Cheers

Neptune P2Vs are making news at the moment. One went down on Sunday fighting a fire in Utah. Not through any fault of the plane of course.

Gonna be hard to figure out just what happened, since the fire they were fighting consumed the plane.

I find the media quite humorous. The news article stated the P2V had been modified with the installation of jet engines, to increase the load of retardant. Last time I noticed, the P2V's were jetted-up while still serving in the Navy.

Got to see a LOT of P2V action, last year, when Texas was trying to burn up. Sure is a sweet bird.

The article must have been scanned as an 8 x 17 but appears as an 8x 11 with the right side cut off on my computer. Could you post page 2?

Thanks,

Wasn't there a story about a guy who won 1st place in Peanut Scale at the Nationals with a little glow engine powered XB-70? Apparently there was nothing in the rules at the time that specified that your peanut had to be rubber powered.

Aeromodeller free flight plans

Hi,
Looking at two issues of AEROMODELLER the NOVEMBER 1963 and SEPTEMBER 1991.

The 1963 cover features Derl Morley holding aloft his very successful Open Rubber design. Of 48 inch wingspan it took out many events during 1963.

An article by Finland’s KAUKO KUOSMA gave an depth look at free flight model flying boat designs together with two plans.

The first is GULL a very attractive gull wing flying boat of 63 inch wingspan having a fast climb out and nice slow glide.

The other model designed and described by Kauko is SEAL a 491/2 inch wing span bi-plane ..

To September 1991 with the cover showing a beautifully built scale rubber Hawker Demon from the Model Shop plans.

It’s builder, ALISDAIR IMRIE, took out top spot at the Scale Weekend that year at Old Warden.

One free flight full size plan in this issue and it’s DAVE CLARKSON’S “SLOW 400” a Slow Open Power model for 2.5 to 3.5cc motors.

The construction article is very detailed and advise is even offered on trimming and the best way to fly contests.

Finally back to the 63 edition and to AIRCRAFT DESCRIBED where J.H. ROBINSON looks in detail at the SPEEED KING SK3 JUPITER.

It's yet another fascinating 1930’s racer with a long sleek fuselage and the obligatory tiny wings

Cheers
