The thumbnail is of the plan,   
I was wondering if anyone knows who the designer is and the name of the model.    Was there an article that went along with the drawing.

 Originally came from   Air Trails,   July 1940

The plan was scanned from a club newsletter  September 2002
 (Model Museum Flying Club, SAM chapter #1)

  The wingspan is 18 inches, I made 3 of them years ago and they flew really well with the
 7 inch sleek streak propeller.    They always seem to come down into traffic when I flew them at the Park.

 Well after there were 119 views on this subject with no one knowing the name or the designer. I asked around with some club members.

 One of them asked AMA if they recognize the plan. And sure enough, back came a response.

 The name of the plan is the    THE FLEDGLING   by Thomas

https://plans.modelaircraft.org/product/fledgling/

   and there is a build article.

    The propeller block which I was interested in is       7" x 1.25" x 3/4"    and THE FLEDGLING is actually a 17 inch wingspan.
