Aircraft Nibor is after is the Lockheed Neptune.

silly me I see that Ray has already done it

Well with Algy1 now adding to the fun thats three of us posting old Aeromodeller and Model Aircraft plans on a fairly regular basis. Unfortunately the only 1961 Aeromodeller I have is the May issue. I only ever used to buy old Aeromodellers with full size plans but with the arrival of good cheap flatbed scanners I started to buy old copies on ebay. Strangely issues from the 60`s were hard to find. Now the traders have moved in and they seem to think that these magazine command collectors prices and well I am not that desperate. So come on all you Aeromodeller hoarders lets dig out that 1961 issue.

PS nice scans algy 300dpi is ideal to not lose any detail on expanding to full size.full size them. The grey backgrounds are a pain but not a disaster. Several posters have spent ages removing them from some of the plans and planeman is still looking for the magic bullet to remove them.

Aeromodeller Plan Scans


Hi,

Kenny E asked for Ray Malstrom and Vic Smeed plans so here are a couple of classics by the legendary Vic Smeed to start with.

To keep the mixture up there is also a jetex plan from the June 1948 Aeromodeller. I will feed in another Jetex plan in the next posting. This time a scale METEOTR IV also from the 48 issue.

I am now applying a touch of contrast and sharpening to the plans to improve their quality.

Cheers

I wonder how many Walt Musciano did for Aeromodeller I'm also a big fan of his.
