Balsa breaks better

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.

I can not help with the print wood but I can help with the decal.

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...?
Thanks a lot; ordered the kit many years ago, when DMI still existed, but never got the kit.
Thanks again!!!

Hello all,
I know this thread is for Pre-1960 but I was wondering if any of you have a PDF copy of the plans for an old plane called the Round Tuit?

Thanks in advance,

Shawn

If the plan is after 1960, you might want to check the "after 1960" thread. There's also a "Pre 1977" thread as well. Do you know where the plan came from , magazine, designer? The name sounds familiar.

I wasn't sure of the date so I posted here and in another thread. Luckily a fellow member here e-mailed me a set of plans.

Thanks,

Here is a unique plane and flying model of it, its from august of '56 f.m. magazine. Its called FC-1 or Flycycle, it was a one off that I know of, built in 1954 by Lawrence Farnham of Fort Collins, Co. The plane was powered by a 75 h.p. A-75 Continental engine and had a wingspan of 29'7" and 19' long.You where to straddle the fuse, with your feet on the wings, like straddling a motorcycle and the handlebar worked like it would on a motorcycle with a twist grip throttle. I guess it would of been like a flying horse for on farms, to fly out and mead fences or such, anyway here is some pictures of the prototype and the plans for the model. I think it was a nifty idea that didn't make it then, but maybe as an ultralight today?

ARUP flying wing september 1936 model airplane news scan


Hi Everyone-

This is the ARUP flying wing scanned directly from my issue of the September 1936 Model Airplane News.

The full scale ARUP has an interesting story, but was never in production.

Several years ago, I somewhat redesigned the ARUP for electric RC and have the

structure built. Sometime I'll finish this model up....

Enjoy,

Jeff
