Planeman,

Click the small image once, it gets larger.
Click a second time and it increases size.
Now right click on the image and select "Original" size from the menu and you have it full size and very workable.

Cheers,
Rob

Here's a snippet of a plan from that page. I blew it up to 1/2"=1'0". Plenty good enough to build from IMO. Full size as drawn would fit on about an 18x22 sheet. I had it blown up to full size and was still very readable.

Did you find this plan - am keen to find it as a distant relative actually had one flying about 1958.

The problem is KNOWING if somebody still owns the rights to them. Since most of that stuff was done for MAN and Air Progress (or who ever) I THINK that they have kept the copyrights up.

Some websites put some of them up, others, like Hippocket Aero and the other foreign websites I know of don't/won't post them.

But ... THINKING ain't KNOWING. Maybe a call to the PTB at MAN or Air Progress might hold the answer ... and maybe I should put that on my list of stuff to do.

I would LOVE to be able to put those old drawings down on the Scale Drawings and 3 Views Forum but I KNOW the copyright guys would be all over me ... UNLESS I could prove permission.


BTW ... I remember seeing Wylam, Matt, and Neito, Karlstrum and Nye drawings in MAN through the 1960's. I don't remember seeing them in the 70's ... but I had discovered cars and girls by that time.

BTW II. You got "most" of their stuff?

Do you share?

Converted to PDF full size (I think)(couldn't quite read the WS). Looks very buildable but I supposed someone could clean it up if they desired.......

It sounds like it could have been a Roy Clough design since he had several published in PM, but maybe not. Or maybe Paul Palanek?

Can you describe it any better? Any hint of a name?

Ratracer posted a picture of it.

Wing span shown is 47" Brner (although I had read 48" elsewhere??), fuse length 26"

Thanks Rob. I used the fuse length of 26", which I could read on the plan. The other thing I checked was the wheel diameter and that seemed to be very close. However, using these as guides, the WS then came out as 44"....guess there is a problem with that one.

Spring in Aus. Time to do more flying and less building.

I think the Three Stooges said it best........

Spring is here,
the grass has rizz.
I wonder where the birdies is?
The birdies on the wing, I heard.
How absurd, I thought the wing was on the bird.
