Kalpie


Can anyone help me.

I am looking for a plan of the "Kalpie", first published in "Aeromodeller" in February 1952, page 82.
The Kalpie is an all sheet F/F Power model designed for 0.5 cc motors.

A plan was also published in the Vic Smeed Book - "Free Flight Power Models".

Thanks in advance

Brian

No, that's the one I was flying against him. The one I am talking about has "I" beam rib assy and the tail is longer with rounded wing tips. The wing sort of reminds me of a pancake. It is much wider then the Quicker and the wing looks very thin because off the wide cord. The tail also goes back father then the Quicker too. Oh well, it was worth a shot anyway. Thanks for trying.

I also flew an Omega against him and won every time. To bad I couldn't win in the contest I entered. On the second round, I had a guy cut my streamer right through to center of my plane, so that put me out. I didn't have a spare........ I just really like the looks of that plane and wanted to build one. No big deal really. I can draw up a set of plans that are close to it............................ I'll try that trick of moving the pointer over the pdf file and see if that makes it easier to read. Now if I could just find a faster internet speed. Dial-up stinks big time...........

I think it may have been just a little bit later that someone got the bright idea of Galloping Ghost and that was the end of the TTPW format.

Boy, not sure what happened on the last upload, but I noticed these didn't go through. Here's another try. I wonder how the movie plane flew. Definitely Fantasy Flier, not scale. Got the plans either from and FAC or the CFFS Crosswinds publication. Not sure which now.
Karasu is reputed to be a plane designed in a Japanese university or College and flown as early as 1891. It's a Model Builder article, and something similar was recently kitted.
I tried the Triplane Push-Pull a couple times when I was kid, but never was able to master the props. The Stringless Wonder is from the original article, may still be available from A2Z as an old Peck Polymers kit. It does fly quite well, at least the one I built from this article. A couple FF competition type helicopters. NOT scale, competitive. Then there's an interesting article on older flying things.

Kalpie again


Have had a go at scaling the Kalpie plan to full size and cleaning up the background. Still a bit scruffy, mind. It's that pesky speckled background stuff again.

Well, of course I never built one, back then I just didn't have either the money nor the skills required. Way back then (was it half a century ago, gasp) I don't remember anything being easy, I did fly galloping ghost and the adjustments for getting that to work properly were difficult enough. Our present pulse width proportional does work far better. Count our blessings.

Great Lakes XTBG-1 Torpedo Bomber


This is a vintage Alan Booton plan reproduced in AirWars magazine. I've included the original scans from the magazine for a 19.5" span rubber model as well as my attempt to scale the plans up to 1/12th size. The real aircraft had a span of 42' and length of 35' 1".

First, thanks to you all for posting all these great plans. Some are absolute works of art!
I'm searching for a set of plans for a Waco UPF-7, preferably for outdoor rubber scale. The UPF-7 is an open cockpit bipe. There's lots of Waco cabin bipe plans around but no UPF-7's that I've found. I'd like to do a model of Jimmy and Kyle Franklin's Wacos, maybe even the jet Waco. What a nuts airplane....
Thanks!

This is an attractive pod and boom design (well I think so anyways) from around 1940 so far as I can make out. Found it in Air Trails magazine.

aeromeddeler included the KK EzEeBilt Sedan in his most recent post. He noted a portion of the plan is missing. If anyone is interested in that series, indluding the Sedan, I have most of them on my web site here: http://www.parmodels.com/Plans/jigtime.htm.
