Help!
Looking for info on plane

This request is really going out on a limb, but here goes:

I am trying to find information on a plane I saw in a late 60s or early 70s issue of M.A.N. (think it was M.A.N. and not M.B...)

As I remember it was:
All built up construction (silk or tissue covered)
Fixed trike gear
T tail
Pusher
WS: about 4 ft??
Engine: small diesel (about 15 size)

I believe the author/designer was Czech

Long road to finding plans (may still be available, who knows?), but the first step is finding out the name of the plane and the magazine and issue.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

The designer could be Pavel Bosak. I know he had a lot of his designs published in UK mags in the '70s some may have also been in the US mags as well.

Thanks Patmcc.
Honestly do not remember his name, but a quick search showed this one:

Not the plane I am looking for (seems he did a lot of simulated jets), but similar, so this could be the designer. If so, an important first step!
