The April 1953 issue of Flying Models had a very impressive piece of artwork by Harold Stevenson on the front cover. The glider pictured looks like it would make into a very nice vintage glider. Does anyone know if the picture is of a real model, rather than an imaginary one, and if so what was it called, and are there plans available.

Yes it was a real, it set a record back in the day. I don't remember the issue but I do remember seeing the plans.

Early issues of Flying Models seem to have vanished - the rcbookcase site has a number of old magazines but nothing for that era of the magazine.  I think it is one of the oldest magazines starting out as Flying Aces in the late 20s.  There is a modern magazine if that title - well modern - 70's and 80's but nothing earlier.

Thanks Bruce and David. In the hope, even expectation, that it was a real model, I went through the list of Flying Models plans on Outerzone. And they are quite numerous. But so far no luck.

Have you also tried Aerofred - similar to OZ.

No need to go looking, I've just posted it on the Flying Models plan site.
https://store.flying-models.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=1841

Note that while the FM web store is set up for Priority shipping, I regularly ship international orders via First Class mail after consulting with the customer. This change typically results in a refund of about $20 on the postage.

This graceful design is Tom Henebry's TOMAG, spanning a bit over 55 inches, and according to the article did 10:18 at the 1952 NATS in Los Alamitos, CA. Let me know if you want a different size. I can readily scale it if someone wants to do a larger or smaller version.

I hope there is no offense taken by my using the restored cover image above. If so, please let me know and I will scan the cover and clean it myself.

That's fantastic, thanks Thayer. I'll order a copy. As far as using the restored image is concerned, I certainly have no problem with that. But I wasn't the one who did the work. I found it on the web some time back, probably on another forum. Offhand, I can't remember where, but I'll have a look around.

Thanks Bargle, I have just reached out to confirm this usage is appropriate.
