Hi guys and gals!
Here's one that I'll share!
I came across this the other day.
And since chances are most of us got inspiration from TV programs like Sky King, well how many of you remember this one?

I'll give you a clue.
I remember this guy being on the front page of the Sunday newspaper comics for years.

HIs creator was a gentleman by the name of Milton Caniff, who unfortnately is no longer with us.

But his cartoon character leaped off the Sunday paper and into U.S. Air Force aircraft.

This tV series is being resurrected onto DVD. It ran one season on TV , from 1958 to 1959, and was never brought back as reruns.
It was shelved and set there on shelves for maybe 50 years or more.

His name?
Go here to find out!
If you'd like to read the customer reviews ( all 5 star reviews by the way) go to and take a look at them.

Who is this guy?
Go here to find out!
Warning-this website has a lot of neat stuff to see and read about!

In case you've missed it...

Weight of Covering Material

When deciding what material to cover your latest masterpiece in, it can be useful to have ready access to current information about the weights of competing products. This site provides just that.

Thanks, Stan. Some of those coverings are relevant to the Micro Component Weight Chart thread:

so I'm going to quote your post there.

That's another useful link, incidentally - for anyone who wants to build micro planes and wants to know the weights of the components they could use.

maybe this is an almost impossible request, but I had a UK website (plans for sale) that had some interesting czech designs, amongst many others. I had written to the site owner, and put off buying the plans then, and then my old PC died. I don't think I had my old e-mails saved on carbonite backup, and now its bothering me to no end trying to remember what the site was.
I've looked through the lists here, and I'm not seeing it so far. The plans I was looking for were mostly rubber powered scale. Not your ordinary designs seen in the US.
maybe someone can post a few links, who knows, maybe it'll be the one?

Condolences on the sad loss of your old PC. Try (or to see the whole site, with the menu)


also take a look at

- download the price list to see what they sell... not sure about plans though.

You're welcome, jonquinn. I'm glad I could help.

I don't really know anything much about free flight but I'm hoping to pick it up.

A lot of the stuff that Mike lists on the freeflightsupplies web site has uses in all types of models, especially if you are into building light! I get my mylar and tissue from there and his service is always first class.
