I ran across this picture of the "Stogie" in the December 1955 issue of "Flying Models" magazine.

Nice, in its own "function over form" fashion.

I'm going to exploiting some old, old magazines bequeathed to me by the man "down the road" who introduced me to the hobby in my youth. I'm starting with Flying Models because that was the closest box.

I will use this thread to post them, rather than the more open places, because I will exercise strict control over postings. Please expect postings to be deleted after I read them. If you wish to carry on a conversation, please use private messages.

I'm tackling the magazines chronologically and will sometimes take the time to clean and scale the drawings, but no promises. If anyone wants an individual article converted to image files, such as JPGs, or want a particular article scaled and cleaned, please let me know and I will edit the post to include them.

I will post the articles and plans in a somewhat haphazard manner, as fits my fancy. Some of the plans, in the early posts, are duplicates of those placed on other threads. I posted them while I was working out my methodology.

When you see a file name containing the word "raw" it means I have not modified the scan. Likewise, the word "opt" indicates I had to use compression to get the plan under 3 MB. When I feel the plan is interesting enough, or that the plan will need much enlargement to be useful, I will zip (compress) the file and post the larger raw article in the "zip file."

Many times, I will have a higher resolution image... PM me an email address for a direct send. Include the name as I use in the posts.

Please feel free to subscribe, and enjoy.

Rework and Repair List (so I do not forget)

Post 316 - Clarify plan images. include a parts sheet (in the article) in the posted images.

Post 333 - one of the plan pages is skewed. locate the magazine and rescan article.

To mark the centenary of the formation of 17 Squadron a unique line up of aircraft was assembled at Edwards Air Force Base, California; a Sopwith Camel (replica), Supermarine Spitfire XIV and Lockheed Martin F-35B Lightning II, three of the types flown by the Squadron during the past 100 years. -- from the RAF FB page

On Friday, May 8, 2015, join us to celebrate the 70th Anniversary of Victory in Europe (VE Day). The Arsenal of Democracy World War II Victory Capitol Flyover will include 15 historically sequenced warbird formations traveling across our nation’s capital—from the Lincoln Memorial to the Capitol. The Flyover will feature over 70 warbirds representing the major battles of World War II, from Pearl Harbor to D-Day, ending with a final Missing Man Formation to “Taps.” Never before has such a collection of WWII aircraft been assembled at one location—a fitting tribute to the men and women at home and abroad responsible for this Victory in 1945. The Flyover is set to start at 12:10 p.m. and last approximately 40 minutes.
