Antique is a whole lot better than the alternative.
Vince, the Veron plans are much appreciated. I notice you are from the great state of Mississippi. I lived in Ocean Springs on the coast from 2005 thru 2008 and loved it, except for one thing, Katrina. I got too old to worry about hurricanes.

Keven.
That is good news...If Vince has not got this one to post (I expect he is busy looking as we speak!) with printwood then at least it will complete the set....thanks Kevin

Sorry, people. The Chilton is one I don't have. I have the Chilton by Clive Gamble.

TFM70, I live just north of Picayune (the largest city near me). We caught hell during Katrina as we are just 35-40 miles from the coast. I had about 3 acres of wooded land. Now I have 3 acres of land with a bunch of stumps I am still pulling out. I lived through a bunch of hurricanes and I guess a few more will come my way, but I have too many chickens, geese, ducks, dogs, cats and parrots to move.

Pd1,

I love the Frog series of plans. The Company ceased business late 1940's early 1950's. Mike Stuart has a web site devoted to the Frog Plans, and there a few you posted that are not on that site. But with full credit to Mike, here a some more that I think everyone would like added to the collection.

I am about to cover the Moth Minor, and convert it to micro RC using spectrum gear. A 3 view of the Moth Minor, and what she looks like in the bones.

I have built the Birddog, the Minor and the Auster. If built according to the plan, they tend to be a bit heavy in the tail end. I usually do a built up rudder and reduce the wood sizes in the stab. I have built at least 3 birddogs and all of them have been great flyers. I hope to finally get back to building so I can cover the minor and assemble the Auster.

Almost forgot. I did build the kitten. It was cute but I couldn't get it to fly too well. I gave it to one of my grandsons and he has a ball making motor noises and running around the house with it.

Just sayin'.

I'm such a feeb though...Burnelli is one of my favorite designers and I didn't post it.

Senile Moment.

Thanks for posting it.

Musciano's Macchi MC.200 & 202


Z1007 -

Here's Musciano's CL Macchi you asked for, from Sept 1954 Air Trails Hobbies for Young Men. Sorry the plan is ragged, but the magazine plan has a very intrusive dark blue background that was a pain to remove. I don't have the fullsize plan.

I think the "P-47N Thunderbolt control line with retractable undercarriage" you want is the one in Sept 1946 Air Trails, by David Long. Sorry, I don't have that issue. A web ad for a CD of the plan says it's for a .23 and 31? span (the ? maybe typo or not sure of span).

Yes, I got your PM. You're welcome.

Your stash is a miracle one!!! Thanks for all those Veron Plans. What else did you find in the stash? Perhaps Keil Kraft with parts or other rubber scale?? Again thanks for sharing all those gems with us vintage modellers. Greetings from Colombia

Here are 3 Frog Series gliders. I'm not real into gliders but these look like nice built up types. I hear they fly good. Again credit to Mike Stuart for his work finding and archiving these.
