Gluehand, the Frog page is from a catalog of 1953. One can say that it was very early RTF models.

Yep, a RTF or ARTF indeed!
Nevertheless, it was the start of a lifelong addiction to aeromodelling...


Here are some F/F-pages of the 1959 SEMO catalogue...

Jim,
As the Fantom was an all-sheet model, just a build description came with the kit, and AFAIK no full-size plan was ever published....
However, a hand drawn plan is said to exist, and with some help I've now traced the source. Problem is that this gentleman has yet to find it () among his stuff...
Search is going on though, and eventually I will be contacted...i.e. there is some hope....

I think this catalog is from the late '70s, although much of it is the same as 1970 or so. Hope that's old enough. Some of these are nostalgia items for me.

As a kid, I actually built 11 and 12 on page 77, and 11 even sort of flew.

Must apologize for the presence of a couple of "the others".
