I just came across this site and what hit me is that it's on a russian server. I was searching for plans of a p-59 Airacomet and I found IT! Comet Model Aircraft apparently made one in 1947. It was in .pdf format and I ran down to Office Depot with a thumb drive and they printed it out. Their printer can only print up to 36" wide, so I could only get a 180% enlargement. That puts the wing span at about 47"

Here is the link to the plans:

and photos of my enlargement. It's my first enlargement of an old plan. I am happy.

This is the "in progress" build of my Herr Starlite. I chose Coverlite over the tissue that came in the box (I don't like the color). I put Turnigy B12-30 3850kv Inrunner instead of the mentioned brushed motor. I added a rear wheel. (More photos soon). I have lots of small 2s lips to stick in it. I put a E-Flite 1.5mm prop adapter and also made the whole area infront of the wing, a access door in case the motor needs to be removed. It's held in with magnets.

I probably won't get in on the 4oz they said you should, but I am sure it will fly.

UPDATE : It's complete. New photos. it it's final weight is 8oz. OOps.

Here is my completed Rally XP by Herr. All laser cut. No issues building it. It's my first real experience with covering a plane, I think I did moderately well. I will have a folding prop added shortly. Anxious to try it. Balanced nicely.

I have read some threads about this plane, and know of the purported rudder, can't turn issue. I will see what it does, and make changes if needed.

Update: I added the folding prop as soon as it came in the mail. Goes more with the red and black. Need colored rubber bands!
