I decided to go with the 72 because of the tail section. the 72 just looks better and more adaptable to 2 ch RC. I do have what I think is the original Thermic 100 plans but can not find any reference to the other 2 or what the differences are. Any of you out there know what those differences might be and where one can find the other 2 plans?

Sorry, no. Thanks for the go at it though. I have the 72 and am headed to town tomorrow to get it printed out so it is waiting on the wood to show up. I'v been on the lookout for the 50X. I can purchase a copy and the price is right, but the "shipping" charges make me cringe, ($0.05 more than the plans) I'll probably end up buying them sooner or later if I like the 72 as much as I think I will. Looks like it would be about the right size to stick an electric motor on...

* I'v got the that 100 as well, and was wondering how the other 2 versions differed from that one.

Aeromodeller plan scans


Hi,
We stay in the 1960's for this posting with scans from the SEPTEMBER 1968 AEROMODELLER.

The cover photo, is it real? Is it a model? It is actually a multi award winning flying scale model of the Bristol F2b WW1 fighter by Bill Forrester. It is exact scale, rib for rib with every single piece of structure and accessory.

Sorry the plan was not to be found inside but something as equally stunning was.
Veteran Modeller H.TOWNERS control line scale D.H.89a DRAGON RAPIDE.

This is the first TOWNER PLAN I have been able to post and you can see how well detailed they are.

I cut one of the photo captions to keep the file size down but in it the Editor says “Who will be first with the R/C or Free Flight version?“. So I guess you could build it in all three forms. It certainly looks like a free flight plan to me.

A design by GEORGE PERRYMAN for an interesting A./2 glider was the second plan. It is to one twelth scale so could be built from.

Next to the free centre page full size plan of the month by the ever inventive Ray Malmstrom. This time it is a 22 inch control line stunter for the beginner called SWEETHEAP.

Many thanks to both ROGERc and LUK S for reassembling the bits of the free fold out plan I posted from the FEBRURAY 1968 AEROMODELLER for the HUMBUG.

So here is the other side of that 1968 free fold out plan. It features three great classic Chuck Glider designs originally published in the United States. DRIFTER, SUZY Q V11 and STOMPETTE. Once again the plan will have to be joined up.

Finally, as always, to AIRCRAFT DESCRIBED by GEORGE COX who reveals the innermost workings of the CURTISS SBC-4 for all to see.

Cheers

Thankyou very much Ralph for taking the time to dig out the magazine and scan the article.

There's a June '76 issue on fleabay now, if you wanted to peruse the design. The plan crosses pages at the binding, so the magazine would have to be disassembled to scan completely.

Tried to open it, but the pdf reader crashes every time.
Anyone got the correct file?
