I'd be interested in the 141" wingspan j3 cub plans and maybe the corsair plans.

Thanks to all of you for helping me save these "girls" from the dumpster.

Rescued Plans.....Done


Gentlemen,

The last set of plans has been spoken for.........

They're all gone.

To those of you who have reserved plans, make sure I have your correct address. You all know how to get in touch with me.

And want to thank each and every one of you for helping me save these plans from the shredder. I wish they had all been legal to scan and post, but they weren't, so I figured it was best to just offer them to people who truly wanted them.

Calm winds,

Thanks again for all the hard work. I'd still like to see the Veron Thunderjet plan if anyone comes across that one. I have Mike Stewart's and Steve Badge's Thunderflash mods to Mike's plans. But the "E" model has that rounder fuselage .

Thanks again,

I just found this one and added it to my "must have" list!

hey guys,

I've been thinking about building a Comet Taylor cub (16 in. wingspan.) Plans were posted on page 5 of this thread. I was wondering, does anyone know how much this plane weighed once completed?

Based on a somewhat similar model I built that was slightly sparser (Guillows Porterfield Zephyr), my guess is that with real attention to weight* you could build it at 6 or 7 grams in an indoor version. Obviously more for a doped, outdoor version.

5 to 6 lb balsa, light Esaki tissue, no paint or dope, etc.

Burnelli twin and Indoor ROG


Following scanned from March 1998 Airflow newsletter. John Whittles was the editor at the time. Both of these plans were submitted to the newsletter by Dr. Harvey Pastel. The Burnelli twin plan was part of an article, which I don't have.
