Hi Everyone-

This is the Great Sal Taibi's Comet class A freeflight scanned from my issue of Air Trails of March 1948.

it's a parasol type design and has a nice airfoil, I have to add this one to my build list for electric RC.

This rare model is now a USA S.A.M. legal oldtimer.

I think the last page of text is missing, I will add it when I find it in my " files "

enjoy,

jeff

Hi Everyone-

This is scanned directly from my original copy of Model Airplane News Feb 1947.

the Ay-Jay is now a S.A.M. legal " oldtimer" and looks like it would be fairly simple but a great flyer....

it has been sent to outerzone.

feel welcome to download these original scans.....

Best Regards,

Jeff

Hi Everyone-

This scan was copied from my original kit plan of the PAPILLON 1/2a motorglider.

I bought this kit in 1981/2 from hobby lobby for around ten dollars and built it. It was flown with different cox .049 reed engines..... the kit was made in japan , the design is excellent, save for the " keel ". I was warned back then to omit this otherwise a hard landing would damage the fuselage !

it is an excellent flier with a really good structural design and would be a fine flier today with any power system. I may build another sometime for electric rc....

my scan is on outerzone or feel free to download from this post.

enjoy,

jeff
