Likely a winter build.

Hi ,
a mix of the old and new here, a 1947 design that I remember seeing in Aeromodeller plans catalogues back in the '50s. Eventually got around to building one but it's covered in Oracover and fitted with 9gm servos for rudder/elevator, more for trim than any sort of 'agile' flying though. Weighs 380 gms so is a light weather flyer, needs mods though as the downwards curve of the rudder causes stripping of servo gears on anything other than a dead straight ahead landing. Difficult to launch as well because of the lack of pod behind the wing, and I've not fitted a hook nor wanted to risk even a weak bungy.

Wow that is light !

Maybe a main skid just behind the CG would add a little durability to this ship. It could serve as a handle too for the bungee launch.

Beautiful work Trev, I have had these plans in my PC for a long time but never got 'round to doing anything with them.

Thanks for the comments folks, I enjoy building these old designs because-
1/ I remember seeing them in old Aeromodellers when I was a child who struggled to save enough pocket money to get a £0-3-9 KeilKraft kit once in a while
2/ I'm a reactionary old fool with a certain aversion to ARF

Anyway here's a couple more pics[ grrr all done again after that nice windows man updated my computor midway through this post and dumped everything]

Stuart, for this and other olde worlde plans go to www.model-plans.co.uk where Derek Scott has oodles to choose from.- and cheap/free! Best if you've some old APS catalogues to see the actual model, unless it's in your memory.

I use this site http://www.outerzone.co.uk/ . It really is free and you can download everything. Tile the plans and print them or save them to USB stick and have a local copy shop run the plans out to the correct sheet size.

Have you no consideration,
There goes about half a day of my valuable time looking through two sites full of stuff I'll probably never build.
Regards(and thanks!) Stuart.

Great build. At first glance I thought it was a Sparrow, one that has been on my "some day" list, but the span, fuse and fin were not right for that model. Given your success with this one, and as good as it looks, I think that the Sparrow has just moved up a good number of notches on that list. Did you use any wash in on the wings or just leave them flat?

To Stuart.......... sorry! I too seem to lose track of time looking through these sites then making tentative lists of 'maybe' projects. Sometimes I even put my APS catalogues deliberately out of the way!!
Thanks for the comment Mark, yes it's built as per the plan washin-wise. Sparrow has been sitting on my computor files for quite some time for a future build- after I've finished the current project[ [only a quickie so will show soon]-- and then there's the Horten that I'm drawing out-- oh! and the Gulliver plan that arrived a few weeks ago. Well what is life for anyway, if not for creating things.

A wet Sunday today so could not do any grass cutting and so had to spend all day in the shop, got that quickie that I mentioned off my 'to do list' at last, it's Arrowhead a 14" chuckie from 1947. Next couple of days promise BIG rain so no test flight for a while it will just have to yet more balsa-bashing, ho hum!
