Hello folks,

Anybody know where I might find plans for the "Golden Eagle III"? There is a picture of Keith Palmer's plane on the cover of the Autumn/Winter 1999/2000 Flying Model Designer & Constructor. It's a cool gullwing streamliner rubber model.

Thanks!

Woops, i overlooked this forum. thanks for the move. I found a listing for a "Golden Eagle" on the NFFS plan page but it does not have much information on what it is.

Hi Derek

There was a clutch of 'Eagles' built a few years back (Keith had at least two) - I don't know if there was a full sized plan, although I thought it was in one of the earlier Zaic yearbooks and presumed most builders scaled up and worked from that... Smiley

Derek Did you ever find the golden eagle plan?? I believe it is on page 87 of the 1937 yearbook. I would be interested if you found a source for this plan.

Hi Bernard, I have not found a plan. It seem that everybody that has built one in lately used the Zaic drawing as the source.

Sorry to exhume this moldy oldie, but I've just come across a couple of pictures of the Golden Eagle III and know I just have to build one.

It seems that no full-size plans exist, but there is a drawing of some kind in the 1937 Zaic yearbook. Even that would be fine for me to work from. Does anyone know where I could find a copy of it?

Thanks!

I just checked on page 87 of the 1937 Yearbook. That's the 1935 Canadian Wakefield Winner, a biplane, though the upper is a gull wing. I poked around in the rest of the Yearbook, but I didn't find anything.

However, I found a listing at the AMA's plan site. Check out the list of G's at: http://www.modelaircraft.org/plans/plans.aspx
It shows a Golden Eagle II, but I think that's just a typo, as it also says that it's done by "Orwin" and is in the 1938 Yearbook. Turns out there IS a plan for a Golden Eagle III there on page 90. They're charging an awful lot for that plan if it's just the drawing from the yearbook. BTW, I noticed in the Zaic sketch that the fuselage stringers are shown planked over,  unlike the pics you showed us.

Thanks for the info and leads, Lincoln. Much appreciated.

Like you, I have a lot of other things to keep me busy so there's no hurry with this. It'll turn up somewhere, sooner or later.  Smiley

Well, thank you, Lincoln! That's all I need. It's a bit bigger than I envisaged, at 55" span. Should make a nice, and very different, model.

I'll get right onto drawing it up in CAD. Full size plans, including things like laser cutter rib and bulkhead files, would of course be available to anyone who wants them.

Thanks again!  Smiley

So are these plans available? I saw that it was featured in Aeromodeller recently:  http://adhpublishing.com/shop/store/products/issue-027-945/
with full size plans (so I'll buy the back issue), however I checked their plans catalog and couldn't find it. Also, I'm mainly interested in an electronic version of the plans because I don't want to build a 55" Wakefield, I thought if I re-scaled it to about 32" it might be fun.

In the February 2016 issue of Aeromodeller, the article states that full sized plans are available from ADH publishing ( plan # 613 ). Their online catalog does not list it, but it might be worth a phone call. +44(0) 1525 222573. They take credit cards.

OK, I guess I'll have to give them a call sooner or later, I see it says you can order the plans, but I'm assuming that's hardcopy, I see a bunch of (British) modelers have built the plane, I thought there might be some info on an electronic copy out there, but I'll check, thanks for the info.

Just heard back that this plan in not available in electronic form, only printed, for those who were hoping for a download.

Cheers,

You bet.  Going to have to reduce it the old fashioned way once it arrives.

HI All,
If you are patient I plan to do this one as a short kit. means I will be doing a plan for it using the Zaic drawing. It would be available in digital format from Hummingbirdmodelproducts.com

Sounds good, digital plans would be great since I'd like to reduce it to about 34".

PS - I noticed that you have a F1b/F1g prop pitch gauge, I can't resist those kinds of gadgets so I just ordered one (to complement my homemade one).

So glad I got on this thread, I have been turned on by the Golden Eagle for a long time but never could ID the thing. Its got everything I like in a model, especially charisma. Bernard, please make a reasonable splash when you have your short kit ready. By then I may have recovered feelings in my numb mojo!

Good to hear, looking forward to getting it, thanks! It's been too windy lately for my oldtimers so I pulled out my Coupe from several years of 'resting' last month, got a max for the first flight out of the box, must have been happy to get out, so the gauge will be put to use next flying session, whenever that is.
