Some of my models, past and present

Over 63 years of building flying models, totalling somewhere in the region of 550, one of my regrets is that there are very many of them where I have no photographs, in fact there are whole chunks of my modelling career for which I have no visual record. It's a whole lot easier now with digital photography, and I do have pretty complete coverage of everything I have built in the last ten years or so.

Lately I have been digging through the old prints I have and making a start on scanning them, so I thought I would make a start in compiling a gallery of all the models for which I can find photos.

This is going t be a fairly lengthy process as there will be a lot of scanning to do, so to get off to a flying start I will begin with the most recent stuff, for which I already have digital images, and work backwards, so apologies for the fact that some of the pictures in this first period, the six years from 2006 when we moved to France, have already featured in build logs and other posts on the forum.

2006 to 2012

So, starting with the latest first;
Double size version of the Frog Mamba rubber model for electric power and radio. Span 38 inches, AUW 23.3/8 ounces, power BRC 220 watt outrunner, battery 1500 3S lipo.

I like your model. Reminds me of an F86 Sabre jet.

The Mamba is scheduled for future publication as a "free" full size plan in Q&EFI, in fact at this very moment I am working on finishing the final drawing.

Cambrian Spartan


This is a bit of a long shot. We are the owners of Cambrian Model Company.
We have just started to reproduce our vintage range. We have done the Answer and just done the Spartan.
We would just like to know if we can use the picture of your Spartan on our website as we don't have any pictures of this model built. I haven't got the time to build one at the moment, as the shows are fast approaching.
I would put your details on the website. I have enclosed our email if you have any other photos you could send us

Regards Steve & Janice Tandy
