Cessna 180 by Joe Laterra


Follow the directions and skin it with aluminum foil.

In case you are wondering, the empty block in the lower right corner of the plan is where Model Airplane News put the address and stamp. It must have saved them a small fortune in big envelopes! Docs were scanned from the magazine.

No worries, just glad to see it here. Hopefully after the first of the year I can get back to drawing and building again.

A few months ago Planeman submitted plans for a Fleetwing Seabird. I have finished it and have been flying it off the snow for the last few days. It flys very well if slow and looks great in the air.

That thing looks FANTASTIC! I have always liked that plan and have thought about building from it. This is the first model I have ever seen from this plan. It just looks GREAT!

Thanks for posting,

Planeman

P.S. Any chance of getting a flight video posted here? Please???

Cougar


Paul,
Your Cougar already is at 300 dpi which I consider good resolution. What High Res were you ofering? Did you mean bit instead of bmp? I only had to save it with my software using G4 compression to lower the file size. Again, an excellent scan, thank you!

I worked it at 200 dpi. when I converted to bmp and 300 dpi.The file size dropped from 4+ Mb to 1.26 Mb. I assume it lost something somewhere.
If you needed the original files, I have them.

You know the really neat part of this thread is looking at different designs and how the designer approached the subject. The different methods of construction and how to solve what had never been thought of at the time. I wish everyone that is considering scratch building knew of this thread as the information presented here is priceless in content. Wow, almost 100 years of different designs and all that information.

Thanks all of you that have contributed as this was my whole concept behind StarCad Plans back in the beginning. Sharing different designs from every corner of the world.

IMHO I think the more people that archive these designs and others model aviation will continue even after were all gone.

My thoughts as well Guy. It's great to see the designer's ideas in various plans.

Also don't be shy about posting your link. http://www.starcadplans.net/index.php

Guy, nice to see you around again.
It's been maybe 15 years since you had the original StarCad Plans.

This is such a great forum. My thanks to all the contributors

Thank you to those that responded to my plea for a Grupner Topsy wing plan to replace mine lost during a storm.

I have been offered the necessary information from two very different parts of the world and look forward to repairing my model.

Here are a couple of shots of my Topsy flying and static before her enforced stay in a pine tree many months ago.

Thanks once again and Merry Christmas to all.

John

My Turn, so I will post those designs that are on my web site at the moment. I have many many more but these I consider the best. I going to refrain from posting the Ugly Stick as I don't have the wing plan in PDF at the moment and this computer has Win 7. So guess what my version of Acrobat won't work on a 64 bit machine. Lets see how many I can get through tonight. I'll try and upload some more tomorrow.

Thanks starcad.
It has been said before but worth repeating, "So many plans, so little time."
