I believe it was kitted by Ace (or maybe Dumas) it was a small (36" maybe?) pod-and boom glider.

The one that I recall building from an Ace kit had foam wings, but is otherwise very similar to that plan.

What magazine is that from?

I built that kit in late 60's. Never got a decent R/C flight out of it, due to using too soft a torque rod. Lost too much rudder authority! However it flew good as FF with no further adjustments whatsoever and thus survived for quite a while.  Always wanted another one. Thanks for posting that plan.

BTW- mine was  as per the plan shown.

Iceman,
The aircraft I built was kitted by House of Balsa, and originally designed by Ted Strader.  Mine was powered by
a cox peewee .020 and had an Ace pulse proportional radio in it.  What a great little glider.  I flew it for about
3 years until my wife held right rudder too long and folded the wing at a couple hundred feet, which turned the airplane
into an asphalt dart (Missed the lawn entirely Smiley
Regards

Thanks for the info. I did the EXACT same thing (Well, except for the wife thing... Smiley ). I also flew mine for a couple of years. Had a blast with it. With today's radios, this might be a fun project. I wish I had a .pdf of the full size plan, though...

 I taught my self to fly with a HOB Nomad II in the early 70's aaand I actually got a set of plans from Don at HOB for the Nomad II. He does offer a laser cut kit for the original Nomad. Looks like a winner w/ elec power.

I was thinking that this glider -Nomad- looked familiar. It turns out I have a kit for its smaller sister, Gnome by Ted Straker. It most probably won't get built by me, I'll list it in the Classifieds.
