Finally, thanks Mike.
I have been looking for this plan for over 30 years ;O)
Zebban : Drifter (oz11966) : 21/02/2020

The fuselage is a simple box structure, detailed cross sections at each bulkhead are shown, so I think that's straightforward. The dihedral braces and all the ribs are shown on the plan - they just need scaling up.
SteveWMD : Drifter II (oz572) : 21/02/2020

Hi Martin, nothing fundamentally wrong with Graupner, they were my first big-name brand I went to for 20 years starting in the early 70s. With the Eastern competition bulldozing prices down, firms with more expensive cost structures will...
Miguel : Junkers Ju-52 (oz8333) : 21/02/2020

Just because I just saw this model by Graupner: Seems like they are insolvent - again. A few years ago, everyone would have thought this to be absolutely impossible. In Germany Graupner was _THE_ producer of everything model building for...
Martin : Junkers Ju-52 (oz8333) : 21/02/2020

Thanks, have tagged this one as scale and added 'Professor' to the title, now.
SteveWMD : M-4 Professor (oz11964) : 20/02/2020

Inked by Arve Mozzarini. Named M-4 but it's a scale model of DFS Professor German sailplane about 1928.
Pit : M-4 Professor (oz11964) : 20/02/2020

Text is Italian. According to it, this model is a scale reproduction of the "Professor" sailplane which flew in 1928 at the Wasserkuppe / Germany.
Martin : M-4 Professor (oz11964) : 20/02/2020

It can be built single or multiengined. Undercambered airfoil made it a slow flying speed.Some more info at: pit : MEN Trainer (oz4101) : 20/02/2020

Does anyone have any suggestions about this design? I started to build a kit years ago, but it was thrown out when my parents’ home was cleared out following their passing. I’m still fascinated by the undercambered wing. I have an older...

For more background see the Balsacraft Warbirds Appreciation Thread on RCGroups at MPF : Bristol Blenheim (oz11253) : 19/02/2020

To Tony Chalkly, I have seen your request to John Hurdle for information on electric motors and battery used on John's Whirlwind. I am in the same situation as you I have lots of experience with i.c models but struggling with electrics. Do...
Brian Arnall : Westland Whirlwind (oz4731) : 19/02/2020
