Pardon an old-timer question but what is the difference in the San De Hogan and the Sandy Hogan? (I had one of the latter)

As I understand it the San De Hogan was the original plan published in Air Trails, November 1949 and had a span of 66", whereas the Sandy Hogan was the slightly later version kitted by Berkeley for a 70" span model. The kitted version had sheeted leading edges for both the wing and tailplane which also had geodetic construction. I had one of the former but I am not sure that the plan I built it from was accurately scaled! Brian

I built/flew both the San de Hogan and the Sandy Hogan and always felt Berkeley kitted the wrong airplane.

The Sandy was larger and heavier,  the warren girder surfaces and sheeting gave a firm structure - but again, I had no warp/strength problems with its predecessor.   The main disadvantage of Sandy was that the stabiliser slotted  through the fuselage, thus cancelling out any effective dethermaliser system.

San de was the better flyer, for me

Image from a advertisment (Solarbo Balsa) in Aero Modeller 1974. It could be a San De Hogan.

Similar for sure, but that is Barry Wheeler's Eliminator, I think.
It won the World Champs in Switzerland in 1952, proxy flown by Sylvio Lanfranchi.

Looks like the Hogan's triangular fuselage.  Eliminator was simple box?

Second thoughts .. pylon looks a tad high for a Hogan ?     Looks good, anyway.
