Whilst I can understand the text receiving far fewer viewings perhaps someone can explain why 71 people would only look at half the plan????????????
Possibly as the fuselage plan is the first in line and if after taking a quick look at the model and maybe not finding it to their particular taste then no point in looking at the wings....as with most things...all in the eye of the beholder

Not really a mystery Aero, I guess most people will have a look at the first file, if they like, or want, they'll look at the other and/or take a copy, otherwise, onto the next post / plan.
That's my theory anyway! ;-)

Well, I'd say after viewing part 1, some folks decide that plan's not for them, so then they'll go look at something else. Seems fair.

edit - oops, sorry, just saying the same, but later.

As everyone has stated, people take look and decide if that particular model is for them.
That's why I add the jpg as a sort of thumbnail.
If someone doesn't like it, they don't have to wait for a long download.

Yes, and I'm one of those who only looked at the first page, deciding then that I wasn't interested in the plane. I DO appreciate your posting it, but it just isn't what I want. Likewise, my thanks to pd1 for posting .JPGs of his files.

Is there a plan for a DeHavilland DH4 or DH9 about anywhere?

Looking for something around 36" or so for electric park flying. I know of the Comet kit version that has been posted some time ago but wondered if there was a more detailed version out there.

Many thanks

I do not know where this file came from and I am not sure that this is what your looking for. This is the Pacific Ace Jr.

Gene,
Thanks for the nice plan. That's not the Pacific Ace I was thinking of. I'm looking for the model Paul Denson enlarged (to 720 sq. in. ) for the RCM plans model of the same name. I think the original had a 20" span.
But I'm glad to have the Pacific Ace Jr. too!!!
Thanks,
T.B.

T.B., here are a couple of pics of Paul Denson's RCM Pacific Ace built by me for my wife, Joyce. A very nice flying model and well worth the build time. Also: check with Planeman for the 30" Modelcraft Pacific Ace plan.

Soft landings,

Joe,
Thanks for the pictures. Yes, THAT Pacific Ace. I'll check with Planeman.
The 72" version would make a great electric, then it would even sound like it's rubber counterpart. Very nice.
Thanks,
T.B.

Thanks, T.B.; an electric version would be a great idea as this plane was one of the most enjoyable, relaxing, models I ever flew.

Soft landings,

Here's what the 30" Modelcraft Pacific Ace plan looks like. This came from Planeman.

Soft landings,
