Flying Models Magazine Articles and Plans


I'm going to exploiting some old, old magazines bequeathed to me by the man "down the road" who introduced me to the hobby in my youth. I'm starting with Flying Models because that was the closest box.

I will use this thread to post them, rather than the more open places, because I will exercise strict control over postings. Please expect postings to be deleted after I read them. If you wish to carry on a conversation, please use private messages.

I'm tackling the magazines chronologically and will sometimes take the time to clean and scale the drawings, but no promises. If anyone wants an individual article converted to image files, such as JPGs, or want a particular article scaled and cleaned, please let me know and I will edit the post to include them.

I will post the articles and plans in a somewhat haphazard manner, as fits my fancy. Some of the plans, in the early posts, are duplicates of those placed on other threads. I posted them while I was working out my methodology.

When you see a file name containing the word "raw" it means I have not modified the scan. Likewise, the word "opt" indicates I had to use compression to get the plan under 3 MB. When I feel the plan is interesting enough, or that the plan will need much enlargement to be useful, I will zip (compress) the file and post the larger raw article in the "zip file."

Many times, I will have a higher resolution image... PM me an email address for a direct send. Include the name as I use in the posts.

Please feel free to subscribe, and enjoy.

Rework and Repair List (so I do not forget)

Post 316 - Clarify plan images. include a parts sheet (in the article) in the posted images.

Post 333 - one of the plan pages is skewed. locate the magazine and rescan article.
