Dvorak, a Czech Coupe from the Feb, 1962 Aero Modeller.  Note that this appears to be a 100g Coupe but may be lightened for this postal competition.

Here's Ferion by Guy Gludici from the March, 1962 Aero Modeller.  This model had mention early on in the original thread but I don't know if anyone is building it.  Lots of ribs, for which I show the airfoil courtesy of Dave Andreski.  This thing is really beautiful.

Yes Mark; I think that´s the most attractive coupe I´ve seen. I would struggle to get to 80g

Recently discovered that I'd scanned this plan but never posted Nikolina here.  I can mail a full size paper plan at $4 each if anyone wants one.  See reply #84  in the original thread for a pic of this smallish Cd'H.

Perhaps some interesting subjects on this site: http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/sets/72157632899126730/page7/  ...? (too much for me to look at for now ...)

Well since you ask-remnants of a genuine Baron Knight.....what you see here is at least 30 years old-having been built sometime in the period 1982-84. There's a small story here-this was my first ever Coupe, and I subsequently built quite a few more over the intervening years (my current active Coupe fleet numbers 5) -all up I've built about 10 over the years. In 2002 I had a big clear out of models and sold or gave away a significant number of models of all types just to make a bit of space. The Baron Knight and several other rubber models-including two more Coupes-went north to a couple of guys in Palmerston North (I was living in Christchurch at the time) so I didn't expect to see any of them again except possibly coming up against them at the NZ Nats. Ten years later I'm living in Wellington-and flying with these same two guys about once or twice a month-at the regional FF site we all use-about and hour's drive for both of us-though from different directions. One of the two-is somewhat of a luddite, and has neither cellphone nor computer, but is a keen Coupe and small vintage rubber flier. I mentioned the forthcoming Hippocket 60's Coupe postal to him, and at the next flying session passed over a copy of the rules. On the subsequent session-the NI FF Champs (7-9 March just past) he said casually-"I've got something in the car for you" and handed over the remains of my Baron Knight pictured here-having flown it for quite a few years, then wrecked the fuselage in some mishap.....
   So 12 years after disposing of it-it comes back like the prodigal son-so now all I have to do is build a new fuselage and noseblock-plus patch a few holes in the flying surfaces...

Neat story Chris!  Take some pics as you build the fuselage and share them here please. Will you be using your own original colours on the fuselage?
 Can't wait to see the whole bird.

I'll be starting work on it in the next few days. I omitted (by accident) from the pictures above, the fin which also came back to me-but with a few ribs missing-so that needs some restorative work as well. The colour scheme was one I used fairly extensively in those days-and still have a liking for-the problem was the lovely blue green 'teal' Jap tissue was fairly scarce-and has been for years-but quite recently A2Z has got some in of this colour so I must restock from them before it's too late.  Now its a nice autumn morning here....I'm off flying.....and as a matter of fact, most of the Coupe fleet will be getting an airing this morning and early afternoon.......

Hi Mark

I meant to post this evidence of Dwarf Dip III construction some days ago.
That's a stack of rib blanks at the bottom - should have found a more photogenic angle.
There is more progress by now; prop blade lams; finished ribs; fus sides closer to done.
I'll post more pics as the parts come together.

This is Oosh!, George Matherat's 64 winner.

This sketch appeared in Feb 65 MRA.
There was a detailed full size plan which is said to be still available the french '4A' association.

Here is something out of the rut from Charlie Sotich.

Sheet balsa flying surfaces; tube fuselage; fat fin for cross-section.

It appeared in the 66-67 Aeromodeller Annual.

That's pretty unusual Sean.  Thanks for posting the plan.  Unusual wing curve.

The 70-71 AeroModeller Annual has 5 C d'Hs

Some, perhaps all, were originally published prior to 1970

The first is Linstrum's Union Jack Frost on p30. It comes from ModelAirplaneNews.

Can anyone tell us which issue (probably in VTO in 69 or 70) ?

Three more are mentioned in the first 60s CdH thread :

Lenderman's AMA record holder on p40 is mentioned in post #115 and later

I asked about Cognet on p43 in post #169.

There is another drawing of Raulin on p58. Mark posted an earlier drawing in post #27 of the first thread.


Then on p90 we find Paolo Vittori's Italian Champ. 

Following one of Lincon's leads I some how got to this site

http://www.avia-it.com/act/biblioteca/periodici/periodicidue.asp

Amongst a wealth of other goodies one finds Modellistica for 1969, which contains the pages below.

Sorry about the fuzzy scans. That the original.
