OK, This time - a request !

I found here - on page 11 - a .pdf for a Berkeley Cessna 195, posted by Gluehand.
Fantastic !

I was looking at Uncle Willie's page with the Berkeley models... not to 'his high standards' !
http://myunclewilliestoo.com/about4.html - and others...

I wondered if anyone has the plans for the Cessna 170, the Cessna 172, the Bird Dog, and the YL-24 Helioplane ?

Oh - and the de Havilland Beaver ?
I found the 1946 Stinson Voyager kit plan - posted by Scott on page 11.

Hey Kev.

A plan index is available for the Vintage and Old-Timer plans thread courtesy of Windependence, thank Wayne.

https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...postcount=1007

and you can always find it at:


https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...=229423&page=4

There are many plans that are not shown or have been posted yet. The best bet is to ask like you just did.

Good luck.

Scott

I reckon so...

That's a Colonel Bowden design - English - like ME !
( NOT British ! )

C-E-B on the fuselage side - like the model in this thread...
https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=1355882 - post #3

However - for details - you may need to look at The Society of Antique Modelers.

See - http://www.antiquemodeler.org/sam_ne...s/Page-13.html

Sixth down, 92" wingspan (!) - from 1938, large petrol engine - a 9cc Brown Junior, I imagine...

Keven.
By George, I think that's it. THANKS! Now to try and find some plans, or try and make them from the pic and drawing you included.

BTW, we were in your neck of the woods (little south) summer before last. BEAUTIFUL country.

Thanks to all for the Smog Hog Plans! I remember building a couple of them with my Dad many, many years ago. A half size, e-powered model would be a lot of fun!

Now, does anyone have plans for the Jetco Thermic 50X? Thanks again guys!

Cheers!

20" Piper L-4 Grasshopper


Bridon-
Not terrific, but this is all I have on the L-4. Easily scaled up. Wish I knew who designed it and where published.

Thanks for this Dave.....first plan I have ever seen of the L-4, at least it shows the cockpit glazing for me.

OOooops !


Scott,

I looked through the list of posted plans twice last night... and missed the C180 and Bird Dog ( in post #124 - by planeman ) - sorrry - I was tired.

Guy,

I'm sorted on the Bird Dog, thanks...
I have lots of Cox 049's including a 'new' Space Bug, somewhere - which is why I'm looking at the Berkeley plans .

John,

72" is just too big...!

Dave,

Wow - the plans that you uploaded are just what I was after- especially the Helioplane...!
Thankyou.

Thanks to all in this community that have uploaded these plans...

Keven.

That site is a wonderful link Dave, with that I can now easily modify a J3 Cub into an L-4.

Thanks for this.

Bridon
