I agree with you about Signore Milani. I once read his biography and he was born, if I recall, in 1915. I could be mistaken. I do hope he's still around. I also remember that he owned a hotel in London and that he had a tiny workshop where he built all his museum type models.

Aeromeddeler, First of all a copy of the plan needs to be imported onto the CAD model space - I tend to go for a mono bitmap. Most of the tracing can then be completed using straight lines, circles etc which only require a small number of points. Assuming that the original draughtsmen used rules, compass and french curves then that covers the vast majority of the plan. Very rearely then one has to use the 'spline' tool which places a smooth curve between any number of points. In other words let the package do the work - in my case Turbocad v17. My interface device is normally a trackball, but a normal mouse could also be used.

Hi, Rick. Thanks for the plug.

Warm regards,
Bill Segraves

P.S. "ScaleAndTile3" is the official name of the program, i.e., no spaces in the name.

You have to wait for the site owner to post them they should be there now. The search function on the site is very good. They would have been posted in the outdoor rubber sport section.
In fact I have posted the 1/2 size Judge Wakefield and the 1/2 size Copeland Wakefield already on this forum.

thank you very much for your explanation. I do have a couple of CAD programs. Now like WMD I have to decide how much time I can spare to learn and play with CAD.

Thanks roger

Thanks on the 1/2 Wakes, don't know how I missed em here. A friend wants us to all do one for a winter build. Should be well suited to our small field.

Aeromodeller plan scans


Hi,
To the September 1953 AEROMODELLER with the cover photo showing two of the greats of aero modelling.

On the far left, standing, is designer VIC SMEED himself explaining details of his PUSHY CAT and next to him, with cap on, is CAPTAIN BOWDEN English pioneer of powered model flying and record holder. Both long time contributors to the magazine through articles and plans.

BLUEBOTTLE was featured first being a control line winner of the Nationals “B” team races.

Designed by CYRIL WEST it has distinctive semi scale lines and first class performance.

Next was a simply made 34 inch beginners Free Flight model the HOT CANARY by W. EDWARDS.

For motors up to .87cc it flies consistently and well in all weathers. Although no D/T is shown it would be easy to fit one.

This was followed with something for those that go around in circles all the time, DOUGHNUT by LES VINALL

It is described as an Annular Wing Novelty which sounds a bit painful but according to Les it really performs with the climb of a pylon model and the glide of a sailplane.

It was powered by an ED 2cc diesel and looks like fun to build and fly.

The maestro himself RAY MALMSTROM made a welcome return in the centre pages with a free full size plan for MiMi.

As with most of Ray’s designs it is slightly quirky being a pert little biplane of only 16 inch wingspan. Apparently it has a very high rate of climb and can quickly disappear.

This was my first attempt at using the “STITCH’ facility on my scanner to give you a one page plan from two different scans. It seems to have worked out.

Finally to AIRCRAFT DESCRIBED by G.CULL who runs his much used tape measure over the Vickers Supermarine SPITFIRE V.

Cheers

Algy

Is it possible to cite a specific down site for ScaleandTile3?

Thanks,

Thanks tri-pacer, wish I could say it only took 4 hours. I know that there are errors especially in dethermalizer detail for there is no room for a snuffer tube and the fuse looks too small in diameter to me. That area detail was all a guess and so was quite a bit of the drawing text.

I could not find anyone offering this plan by doing a google search, so, being a Vic Smeed design, I felt it was worth redrawing to preserve.
