Dear Keven.


The plans is a nice hobby for collection.
It is impossible to build all these planes even if there were two or three lives and more.
I have several buildings, but I navigate (fly) less.
Liked for me to deal with them.
I have spent many hours engaged for cleaning and sorting them into groups.
Really like for me to be ready to use it all.
It very upset if this theater deletion, like other in the forum.
It's a nice deal in difficult times with almost zero financial cost. (Money)
Thinks he likes a lot to deal with these.

Elijah.

. but it reminds me: is there a model plan in existence for the Comper Streak?

1/4 scale Comper Streak by David Vaughan. Published in R/C Model World June 1984. I saw David's model at a British Nats many years ago and it was superb.

I post this with some measure of fear and trembling at the prospect of kicking over a hornets nest. As I read over this thread, I see that there is a sensitivity over issues of copyright, and many who post here have some knowledge in this matter.

Perhaps I can find some help or advice.

I am interested in certain issues of Profile Publications (US Army Hawks #45, US Navy Hawks #116). I don't believe these volumes are printed any longer.

I see that these publications are available as free downloads at certain of the download sites (Scribd, etc) ... but I am reminded of all of the legal difficulties that some folks found themselves in when downloading recorded Music from sits such as those.

And then I see a collection of the entire set on sale for $18.00 on Ebay ... and i don't see any mention of anybody's copyrights being protected.

So I'm kinda confused.

Obviously, if I can LEGALLY have this material for free, and the author/copyright holder is no longer making money from these pubs, I would be a fool to pay for it.
My Questions:

Is it legal for me to down load these pubs for FREE ... or should I pay the $18.00 on the assumption that the people putting out the discs have paid properly for the rights to this material?

Further ... can these Profile Publications be offered up on THIS forum? I see that a couple have been already.

Does anybody have these pubs?

Thank you very much. I met Dick Twomey in Middle Wallop in the early ninities. He was retired in Mauritius and I hope he's still alive and well.

Here's the ESSO glider, designed by the Swiss modeler Arnold Degen in 1943 as a promotional model for the european branch of Exxon. It was a good glider and a very popular model in Italy too.

Edimodel; see https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=1643448 for a recent Leprechaun build, there is also additional information about the development of the design by Dick Twomey from a 36 inch span original in there which you might find interesting.

Hello, hello, anybody there,or are you checking that you`ve got enough to pay for the kit??
I wasn`t bidding against you just watching to see what it went for as I have a Veron HAWKER Tomtit kit in the same condition but I think I might just hang on to it.

Yes...!

I have saved LOTS of '(scale) model reference' material - on various private servers.
I have every issue of the five Profile Publications series of magazines.

However, I do not think it would be pertinent to upload those magazines here.
They may be OLD - but they are not plans from which models can be made... and that is what this thread is for.

Also - when I have previously posted single pages of 'things' in .pdf format here...
...with relevance to a particular plan - there has been a 'grumble' or two.

So - whilst I am not posting here - I will share with anyone.
Simply ask... via a PM.
If I do not have what you ask for - there is a chance that I know of someone that does.

Maybe I will have to create a 'dropbox' - as Rufus once advised...?

Keven.

oddshot, Hippockets has the profile publications available for a free down load;
http://www.hippocketaeronautics.com/index.htm
I checked and Curtiss hawk #45 and Navy hawks # 119 are there.
You have to sign up to download from the plans section, but it is easy and they are nice people.

My father in Rome summer 1943 at the age of fourteen with his Esso Glider.
Plans was distributed by Esso (Exxon) gas stations and published in L'Aquilone italian magazine too. The glider had to be used in Esso monotype formula contest that were never held due to the Italy WW 2surrender (8 sept. 1943) and subsequent national situation.
