A member at Stick & Tissue made me aware of this thread.
I would like build this beauty, if anyone has advice I’m a blank slate.
Also how do you get the plans from the AMA plans page? I don’t see any instructions.
Thanks all especially flyguy your videos inspired me to rejoin the sport after an extended hiatus.
TY sir!

Thank you. You must have ESP because I just ordered another plan and cut parts and while I was at it I ordered the Golden Eagle plans. I can't fly a 55" wakefield in my tiny local field, so I'm thinking of scanning in the plan and reducing it to about 34", would make a fun project. Still waiting for the plans, thanks to Trump's mail slowdown things are taking forever, even though I paid quite a bit a money for airmail. Go to http://aero-modeller.com/ and click on shop and you'll see it under plans. As we found out above, they don't have a digitized version, just the full size plans, I hope it gets here soon!

Thank you I will have to order those plans. Hopefully I don’t also experience a delay. Maxfliart just released a build & fly video of a streamline Wakefield, in it he does what you mentioned ie reduces a 44” build to 30 something inches. It was a real beauty.

If you are looking for info on this model try finding Keith Palmer via SAM 35, he is the guy who has built about 5 of these things and has more experience than anyone else of the design

That's the Copland Wakefield, another beautiful streamliner, Bob Holman has plans and a short kit for it.

Where are they? I checked his site and didn't find them. 

.......  And then I did.  Tempting!

Yes, it's on page 4 of Rubber, but you can't get there from page 1, you have to go to page 3 to get to page 4! http://bhplans.com/RMPg4.html

Another one I've had my eye on for about 20 years is the Paratrooper, it's on page 2, it seems to be pretty obscure because I've never found a picture of it or any discussion, not here or on outerzone or aerofred.

I didn’t know bob Holman plans had the Copland streamliner short kit.
Jackpot! That’s the model I wanted initially before I saw the Golden Eagle III.
Maybe there will be a short kit for the Golden Eagle soon.

There you go, please post pictures of it if you build it.

I seem to remember that Bernard at Hummingbird model products mentioned that he might eventually do a kit for the Golden Eagle III, so maybe. Of course I'd like to see it reduced to 34", might be popular in that form, plus it would make a nice size for rubber RC.

Thanks buddy I just ordered the Copland Streamliner from Bob Holman Plans. I really appreciate the heads up, I had been all over that site and did not see that model before. I actually only know about that site from your YT vids. It’s not something google puts on the top of a search, Bob probably doesn’t give them any kickbacks lol
Oh btw Bob mentioned that someone else had just ordered the very same model.
Maybe I’ll run across that person here or over on the S&T forum and we can share notes during the build..

Glad to hear that I’m looking forward to your build progress. I will post mine.
It’s not going to be a groundbreaking documentary so people should maintain low expectations...
I also ordered a sheet of 32nd and 16th gussets as well as a ten pack iirc of 5.5” fuselage framing triangles.
