the ad

Speaking of which, I've never seen a mention of anyone having a copy of the Warring 'Taurus' wakefield, as kitted and briefly advertised by Astral

Hi Bear,

Great to see the photos of the finished Jaguar. It looks superb. Do hope the trimming flights go well and the D/T works as planned

Any chance you can post some flying footage?

Just by chance I was reading the March 1949 Aeromodeller last night and noticed an ad for the Jaguar kit being sold by a hobby shop in Wales.(They'll be singing down in the valley Boyo)

As the attachment shows the ad has must have the worst "pun" I have ever seen used in advertising I will leave it alone not wishing to milk out an even worse example.

Cheers

Algy


Applehoney / Jim........ Do you have any of the plans listed in that Aeromadeller ad?

Thom, the ad's a little short on information - several 'Warrings' listed but no indication of which specific designs. Similarly the '44" Coplands" plan

From the lists I just have 'Flying Minutes' and 'Aristocrat'

Hi,
Seems to be a bit of interest in identifying some of the specific models listed in the 1949 Watkins Model Store ad I recently posted.

Have attached two model aeroplane company ads from 1947 Aeromodellers which should help a bit.

Could not find any Astral Ad for the Warring Tarus in the 1947 issues. Maybe it was not yet on the market in 1947.

Cheers

That 1946 Warring Wake..... Is that a Voodoo or a Zombie? Or am I mistaken?

Yep. Mistaken. Not a Zombie and far from a VooDoo. Both Premier (C.A. Rippon) and Astral kitted designs from his prolific 'development' in the '40s but I've never heard of either plan turning up in SAM35. I do think the Copland 'Masterplane' has been around somewhere, though.

I'm VERY pleased with the Jaguar and the way its come out,

Bear, you should be pleased. Thank you for all of the pictures and for sharing your techniques. I have especially admired your carving skills on the prop and tail mount. I have bookmarked this thread for future reference. Great job, a beauty to be sure!

I'm glad the threads been of some use to other people, as for prop carving I was asked to do a demo at our club meeting and because I rushed and was a bit tense I proper mucked it up. Shocked

1st flight update Sad
Got a few repairs to do !! Managed to get a glide so I put 50 turns on to see how it would go, well it looks FAN-BLOODY-TASTIC in the air but at the end of the motor run it was climbing a bit steep she dropped her nose and turned HARD right and came in with a bump :'( as luck would have it the wing got knocked off with no damage but the prop got busted Angry so i,ve got to repair that but ho hum

IF YA CANT TAKE A JOKE DONT DO FREE FLIGHT!!

BEAR:

My "Jaguar" is taking forever to grow wings! Everything else is done. Kind of lost interest after I gave some thought as to how must rubber it is going to take getting this biggie in the air. Thinking of electric or CO2. Anything I need to know regarding wing construction and/or flying, etc.?

I had no trouble with the wings and as for flying I never got that far before I busted the prop and have not found tome or intrest to carve another one yet.
I put the same amount of ruber in as was stated in an article I read but as far as Im conserned it was far too much so I plan to cut that down when\if I repair it plus it needs a heavier prop wire as every time it nosed into the ground it bent.
Cheers for now BEAR

re-reading this thread I notice the questions about the Warrings Wakefield from 46. My Dad built one of these.  When the Zombie was published in Aeromodeller in Apr 49 there had been a series of articles starting in Nov 48 (I think) by Warring on Wakefields.  He explained the development of the design.  The Warrings Wake Paramount kit had a longer fuselage than the zombie and a thinner Davis wing section.  The Zombie has a shorter Fus and is a bit tricky to wind the motor in without bunching.  The longer fus model with the thin section was not easy to trim and was improved by later Joukouwski (fatter) section.  Dad's model was inconsistant.  Its basically a scaled up Warrings Lightweight, but the heavier wing loading of the Wakefield doesn't work with the thinner wing, seemingly.

In Warring's series of articles he explains how he crashed a model in testing and needing a quick replacement he took the fuselage from the old Warrings Wake and put the wings from a Zombie on it.  Immediatly it went a lot better, just like a Zombie.

There was an earlier Warrings Wakefield, which was a streamliner published in Aeromodeller in '41.

The Taurus is intriguing and the plan has never emerged for it.  I asked the same aeromodeller who gave Dad the 46 plan if he had a copy (he is an avid plan collector).  He said no and that he had looked for it throughout the 80's and 90's.  It seems doubtful that a Taurus plan has survived, which is a shame, I'd love to have a go at it, I think you can even build a small power model version! if I remember the advert.

Brian,


Many thanks!!!!!
This plan is better than the one I have here, although it is still not that one you recommend in http://www.model-plans.co.uk/index.html. The e-mail botton is not working. 
By the way, do you have that e-mail? Or sometimes this bottom it will be available and sometimens not?
Well, will try to begin with this reference you gave me. I am anxious to build this models. Love at first glance!!!!!

Muito Obrigado! = Many thanks!!!
