Plans for Wittman Tailwind (RCM&E, 8/2010)

I'll pretend that I did not know RCM&E recently published (August 2010) plans (free inside) of the Wittman Tailwind W-10, at 1:6 scale (48").

Otherwise I might have to post my request in the FS/W section, where it would languish unnnoticed for eternity.

The publisher's website omits this issue as an available item.

Where / how does someone in North America acquire this back issue, or at least the plans (copy)?

Your assistance would be appreciated at least, and compensated financially at best.

I take it you already tried to order a back issue from RCM&E?

I ran across a thread for Peter Rakes Ryan's Daughter a couple of years ago and ordered the back issue from RC Model World, it had the free plan and the article.

I hope that helps,

Although it was not listed as available in the 'previous issues' section, I took your idea and just plowed ahead with great optimism.

Maybe I’ll get lucky!

Your attempt is sincere, thoughtful and welcome, but...

I do not want different Tailwind plans, by other people. I have those versions. I want the RCM&E plan specifically.

Any other members out there who can help?

While this post might appear as a selfish "bump", it is more like a recovery action – for the fish that might have got away.

I am attempting to possibly bring back any previous viewers to the thread, who could have helped me with my request, but chose not to offer any assistance, on the basis that the post by member “planeman” seemed to have it all covered.

Rufus’s rather boastful, seemingly deal-closing reply, while based in generosity, did not produce anything that I was specifically asking for. In fact, rather than helping it might have actually had the opposite effect, by deflecting other members from offering their assistance.

If those other members read and understood my original post, they would know not only what specifically I do want to find, but more importantly, by simple deduction, what I do not want offered instead.

If I was lucky, one of the members, who did comprehend my request, might actually have the means to the items, I am interested in.

If I was really lucky, one of the comprehending, so equipped members might be generous too, and help me with my pursuit.

So here is my 2nd attempt at the original request.

Please do not try to imagine some subtext to this post that has any derogatory aim towards “planeman”. His efforts were quick, and well intended. I appreciate his intent. People like him make this community great. I only wish to try to recover any possible lost effectiveness in my request that may have occurred due to unintended consequences.

Hello Jeff,

I do have the plans requested. But, I live in the Netherlands. I could try to scan them page per page (A4), but that would take a while... I don't know if you'd like to have them that way?

Regards, Jelmer
