Title: Looking for a picture of a Bostonian
Post by: orbiteer127 on June 24, 2013, 03:14:18 PM
Hi Everyone,
Over here in San Diego, CA we have a Walter Mooney 4th of July contest. I would like to design an e-mail announcement that contains a photo of a completed, peanut scale,rubber powered, Bostonian from a Walter Mooney plan. If you have such a photo and would be willing to let me to use it on the top or as a background of this announcement it would be very much appreciated.  Thank you all for you interest and I'll post the announcement when it is complete for all to see. Please keep e-mails to less than 5 megabits.

Sincerely
William

Hi! Can you narrow it down a bit? A Bostonian is not Peanut Scale and Peanut Scale is not Bostonian...

Cheers,

Dan.

Just Googled for a photo of Bostonian Beaver ... for some reason, the first thing I find is photos of my own Bostonians ... none of which are Beavers. Strange.

The Bostonian Beaver is probably the most popular Mooney Bostonian that I have seen built ... so I thought it would be the easiest to find.
I'll have a look through my own photo collection.

... but as Dan says, is it a peanut, Bostonian or any Mooney design that you want?

Quite happy for you to use one of mine William (Bostonian Beaver photo that is) take a look at the build thread and I'll sort out the images later for you
Cheers
Paul

Hi everyone,
How about a photo of a finished plane from a well known Walter Mooney plan, from the following categories, peanut scale, embryo endurance, Bostonian or 2x peanut scale (the plan is scaled up until the wing is doubled in length)
Can you tell this category stuff is all new to me.

And thank you all very much for the help
William

Mooney designed a few Bostonians.  The following are what I have in my "hard-copy" collection:

Boston FOUND
Peabody Packet
The Old Howard
Plain Jamaica Plane
Bostonian Beaver

If I can get my scanner to behave, I'll upload the files to the Gallery, but here are photos of the article title pages.
