Hi Gary
it is looking good! Are there twin fins to be fitted to the tailplane or is it complete?

Thanks Peter, yes, sheet tip fins will go on once tailplane is covered and a free-wheeler to carve... Shocked.

I did wonder about building this one myself, purely because a similar sized KK Ace of mine performs very well on only a couple of grams of rubber more than the stipulated 10gram.

If anyone else fancies a go at Morrisset's '49 coupe and doesn't have a plan you can either request one via the DBHL on the SAM 1066 site, or perhaps easier just pm me a note and I'll send you the full-sized .pdf file.

...I got my plan from Outerzone. I was wondering  if you could put a few more grams of rubber in it andfly in mini-vintage?

You could if it's less than 34 inch (I think) span, mini-vintage has a max span for rubber models.

Wasn't mini vintage for British and Commonwealth designs only?

..I don't think so, people fly 'gollywocks' in the event. As far as I know it's open to any pre Jan '51 model

I think that was an earlier SAM UK rule for Vintage Lightweight Rubber, but is no longer applicable.

I just built (and lost) a FUIT-3, 1954 coupe and it is a classic French tadpole design and it is pretty as all get out...got it off Outerzone...lost it in the beans at Geneseo and from now on I'll use a tracker

I had forgotten that many of the ex Ed Bennett vintage coupes have migrated on to Outerzone. Fuit 3 is surely the prettiest coupe. It's not possible to say where the spar should be in the flying surfaces as the drawing/text give no clue. Ed chose to embed the spars as being practice for the time, but Etienvre (same year) has surface spars. Whatever, it's a lovely model and the performance of the little coupes should never be underestimated. I can only believe that mid 1950s French Knicker Elastic wasn't a patch on TanSS!

kkphantom:
What's wrong with the Etienvre? Is it the default vintage CdH or something?

skyrocket:
If you have a picture of the Fuit 3, I'm sure that WMD on Outerzone would appreciate a digital version of it.

I need a better forebrain and a winning lottery ticket so I can build all these interesting models. An immortality pill might help, too, though perhaps it would be problematic a few billion years from now. But that's too far away to worry about.  ;-)

Nothing wrong with the Etienvre at all, it's a great flyer and there was a free plan for it in AeroModeller magazine so, as you say, it's the default vintage coupe.
