Well Helmsman, you certainly have produced a rarity - I thought I know pretty much all of Malmstrom's, often quirky, published creations, but this one is new to me, and what a little charmer it is. Well found!

have a look at page 145 post 2166 is this the model you are looking for.
Unfortunately jpg`s to low resolution to upscale but maybe JMP Blackfoot can be persuaded to upload a better scan or someone else may be able to

Other than that there is this from M.A.N. plan will need to be scaled up to page size 60" for full size. Not perfect but good enought to build from

Thanks Meddler! That looks to be about the best 'Bee plan I have seen so far! I haven't gone that far back in the posts yet. Too much time on the couch...

Yes, if JMP Blackfoot COULD be persuaded...LOL

I took the previous drawing and overlaid a true scale drawing and found the original not to be close to scale.
Here's an accurate side view.

Here is another that would make an ideal small field R/C conversion. It's from the July-August 1967 Sig Air-Modeler.

Figured I'd break the progression a bit. Too many plans on one page might get to be a bit much. And to thunk I have thrown away probably 5 garbage bags of paper copies of plans because I needed the space in my house. And all the magazines they came from. I could probably have 3 or 4 times as many as I'm putting up[ now. I think I'll put in a change of pace after all these gliders.

The Björn Karlström 1:25 SeaBee plan of 1947.
Basically a 'static' model, but the plan could easily be modified to suit a flying project of any choosen size.

I have a 2 page copy of the old RCM plan with a 52" WS. Would that be of any help?
