The Little Dipper

The Little Dipper was designed by John Thorp while at Lockheed.

Lockheed tried to interest the military to use it to replace the parachute for the Air Cavalry units.
It was renamed the Sky Trooper. Military passed on the idea.

Thorpe left Lockheed and widened the fuselage. This was the Thorpe T-11.
I think I have plans for that one too.

Added a larger engine and a turtledeck and it became the T-111.
Larger engine and it was the T-211, I built a full size one of these.
Didn't sell enough to stave of the creditors.

He then took a job and made the plane large enough for four people, got rid of the canopy, added a door on the side and swept the tail

It was called the PA-28, also known as the Piper Cherokee, one of the most popular and successful general aviation planes of all time.

This model was designed by Walt Mooney and published in 1965.

Aermacchi AM-3


The Aermacchi is by Emmanuel Fillon, published in the French magazine "Le Modele Reduit D'avion" (M.R.A.), no idea when. Span = 0.8m, or about 31.5in. Interesting that he shows a glow engine, not diesel. My guess would be about .020ci.

Little Dipper is neat!

Found 3view of the full scale Little Dipper, you can see some of the lines of the Cherokee in the lower cowl profile and the landing gear.

Reminded me of the Sky Cycle too.

Do Mark's Wanderer and Craft Air Drifter 2 gliders qualify as old timers? Does anyone have plans for them? Is it OK to ask here?

Thank you!

Alley Kat

From Southern RC the Alley Kat.

I experimented with scanning this one.
I tried color, then gray scale the gray scale was much easier to work with.

Thanks to Gene for reducing the file size.

This will be my last post for a while, I'll be building instead of scanning.

Thank you!

I think the Air drifter would qualify on the basis of its age,...having the plan is a different thing though

Chief Printwood

Well, after reading through the excellant article by Planeman many times, I think I have got it sussed! The original scan was in varying shades so a compromise had to be made and the posterisation was not done as parts of the image would not be readable...maybe not the best but the scaling has been checked against the plan posted in November and seems to be OK.(best to check when you print out though)

Many thanks to KKphantom for sending me the printwood scan and for the tutorial from Planeman I do hope that this will be suitable.

It is my first real attempt at this lark so be gentle on me....
