You're welcome!

That Planeteer looks like a fun build and the streamlined fuselage gives it a distinctive look.

Dave, thank you so much for all the plans you are posting. I am downloading and filing every one. Here's a hint to get rid of a ghost image that comes through from the backside of the page. Cover the back side with a piece of black paper. The scan will come out a little darker but there will not be any ghost image. Try it!

You guys are killing me... I have 16 years of FM and 23 years of MAN to work through and only a few months between jobs.

Nothing is ever good enough.

I'll post the one I just finished... and then I'm taking a break for other projects.

Hardly think a tip, which would take a few seconds and enhance the results could be classed as "whining"

A Whiner would probably say that most of Daves last postings would be better in the free flight or control line sections?

I agree with Circlip. The ghost image tip would only make the vintage offerings better in the long run at the expense of a small amount of additional time per offering. Perhaps Dave overreacted just a bit with his curt response...? Would it not be much better to post good, clear, vintage plans that will be easier for future model builders to use rather than concentrate on posting as many plans as possible in the shortest time, especially if the poster has ready access to the original printed materials? I certainly appreciate all the work and effort that Dave is putting into the saving of these cherished vintage plans but we all need to remember that this is a hobby related endeavor and not a dead-lined job requirement to post plans as fast as possible.

Soft landings,

Joe

A different "Mambo"


Hi,

Recently I came across this plan. A pretty rare one.
Mambo, although not the Mambo we mostly think of .....this is a Danish 1950's design, by Jack Mathiesen, once kitted by DMI.
Span is 35", and the engine shown is a .75cc Viking "Red Helm" diesel.

Isnt it nice...?

Looks good. No need to scan the plan, and it's very workable.

This nice plan is available on Outerzone, but the printwood patterns are too light to use. I recently found the kit on Fleabay and traced the parts. My pencil tracings aren't the greatest; maybe one of our CAD artists could clean them up?

The PDF file will print at actual size, so can be directly used to make your own printwood. For reference, I've also included some JPG files. These will print slightly undersize. Note the inch scale on each sheet; you can enlarge them as needed on your printer. I've traced the parts onto three inch strips so they can be used with standard sized balsa sheets.
