Mini Super


re the Mini Super plan request, I have a lead now on a copy of the plan that may hopefully be along in a little while, thanks MS.

RFJ - Thanks Ray, that's good stuff, I love the advert. They really don't make them like that anymore.

JohnsPop - Thanks. That's an interesting model, and it looks tried and tested. I'm kind of holding out for the (to me) 'real thing' I guess just have my heart set on the Mini Super now.

A big thumbs up from me, too. I really like the idea of printing some old magazine covers up at say A3 size, so I could use them as posters on the wall. That would be great.

I've got all the Model Builder covers scanned, with the exception of May, 1996. I'd be happy to share them, as long as I'm not breaking any rules regarding copyrights. The only downside is, they're all high-resolution scans...most of the files are in the 3-4 mb range.

Guys, I'd really appreciate some input from the readers of this thread. I'm interested in resurrecting and producing some laser cut kits of vintage designs and am looking for ideas of which designs to do.

I started a new thread HERE to start getting ideas of which designs you would like to see redesigned and produced as a laser cut, electric RC kit. I'm not interested in copyright infringement, so please, only designs that are now considered part of the public domain.

Thanks!

This is an old Towner plan. I've reduced the original scan by 50% for posting purposes.

'30s Ramblings


Hello again folks. Was just waxing nostalgic while I looked at some of your old magazine posts. When I was a kid (maybe 9 or 10) back in the pre-war 1930s there used to be ready made flying models (probably from Japan) that were made from a kind of wire soldered together, open fuselage not covered, wings and tail covered in very light silk. They had a wing span of about 12 -14" and were rubber powered. Used to be able to buy them at department store toy counters. I don't recall how well they flew, but they were a real work of art; delicate, neat and cheap. Since they were ready made, imported toys, I know there were no kits or plans for them. Just wondered if anyone else remembers them. Who knows, maybe even has an old photo of one. Carry on boys, and happy landings. Bernie1930

Nice one. This one is perfect to be blown up and made electric RC.
Thanks,

I remember them. It must have been maybe 1955 or so when I used to see them in dime stores. Seems to me Bill Hannan had a pic or two in one of his books.

Thanks for posting its a Lovely plan.
Excuse the pun but Towner certainly went to town on his plans.
Now did you mean you mean you reduced the plan to 20% because as posted it was about 9" by 10" . Have full sized I hope. Perhaps you can check it against your original as I have had to go by the 43" span quoted on the plan.
