Have you looked on the OUTERZONE web site - there are a few PT-19s there.

Humbug


Browsing through some old Model Aircraft mags I came across this interesting looking 50 inch shoulder wing twin fin sport model in the Photonews feature. According to the caption it is called "Humbug" (not to be confused with the 30 inch Aeromodeller plan of the same name which has appeared on this thread|) and was built from a plan published in "Australian Model News".

Can any of our Aussie contributors offer any further details, or, better still, a scan? It looks like a prime candidate for electric R/C conversion, and I am a sucker for twin fin models!

Please help me in getting Wright flyer 1 model plans and drawings, where the rigging and control wire details are given. It will be great, if details of two counter rotating props are given as to which one was rotating clockwise if seen from front of the plane.

I am trying to make model of Wright flyer 1 plane with controls operational, for front rudder (elevator), rudder and wing warping with anhedral drooping wings, close to original plane

George,

In the spirit of co-operation (plus I'm a sucker for twin fins too) offset by the use of electrics and R/C but counterbalanced by 'old times sake' and Northern Area kinship ... I'll mail you a copy this week if you'll let me have your postal address

This model in of The Australian Free Flight Plan site at http://www.kurrawong.net/georgecar/affp.

I,ve appended a copy of the plan I downloaded from their site.. This is yet another site that is worth a good browsing.

Thanks a lot Jim, but as you can see Hogal has provided the necessary!

Thanks Hogal, I do like the look of it, very simple construction but something attractive about the overall effect. Thanks also for the site link - one more place to waste a few hours when I should be doing other things!

Chiribiri


Does anyone have a copy of Antonio Chiribiri's number 3 airplane, please? There is a Walt Mooney peanut size somewhere, but I have not yet located it.

Thanks!

A Sterling Tiger Moth


I still have this one after 30 years incomplete without the "Coupe Top" canopy that was common on most Canadian Trainers of the WWII era. An easy fix.

I recut the wing ribs and incorporated internal spars to do away with the many smaller stringer spars so visible when building the model the stock method. I really should have put in the half ribs and mains in scale postion. My father instructed on these.

Kit FS13 with a 33 inch span. Brushed yellow dope. The reg/n number is from the DH82C in the Candian Ottawa Collection. The plan is posted already.

Is the Dynaflite PT-19 at 89 inch span too big? It is from a defunct company. Does that make it post positive or negative.

Cheers

Dynaflite was absorbed by Great Planes. They don't market the PT-19 anymore though..... shame.
