Does anyone perchance have a dimensioned 3 view of Bob Wells' 1/2A Tanner design. I believe that it might have appeared in the  September 1986 Aeromodeller, as I have the August 86 edition which says that a 3 view will appear next month.

If anyone can help it would be much appreciated, as I now have a homeless (modelless) TeeDee 049.

Regards

I'll have a rumage Peter (any idea what was on the cover?)  Undecided

The other possibility is Roy T of the B'mouth club, who usually helps me out on these foraging missions . . .

Thanks Paul. I'm afraid I don't know what's on the cover as the August issue is the only one I have of that year!

If all else fails I'll give Roy a call, as I'll be at Beaulieu on Sunday!

I have the September 1986.  The drawing is not a full size plane but a typical one in Free Flight Scene.  It is too late tonight but I will do a .jpeg tomorrow.

Ta very much - you are a gent, but we knew that anyway Wink

I suspected that it would be a 3 view, but I'm not averse to drawing up something sufficient to build from.

Once again, many thanks

The .jpegs are attached.

I could not help glancing at the rest of the magazine, as one does, and once again gave a sigh for what the AM once was.  As well as Bob’s 1/2A winner there was his great friend, Jessica Nash’s Womens Cup winner.  They will have gone home a happy pair.  The ‘pull out’ plan was Mick Page’s ‘Butterfly’ HLG accompanied by his memorable article on flying competition chuck glider.  Six pages of control line by Claus Maikis as well as a two page revue of a Mercury ‘Marlin’ repro kit.  Six pages with many three views of Thermal Soarers by George Stringwell.  Vintage Corner in its four pages had a photograph of Chris Boutle (who I don’t know) who had many flights with a DC Bantam powered ‘Scalded Kitten’ – so it wasn’t just Annenberg who got one to fly.  Scale Matters featured Dick Howard’s twins for FAC competition and there were another five pages of scale stuff at the Old Warden weekend.  I was interested to see the four engine Armstrong Whitworth XV by Dave Chinery that flew well powered by four Acoms electric motors, quite something in 1986.  Readers’ Letters (remember how good that was) had a picture of John Buskell with his F1C.  John was giving Dave Hipperson a ticking off!

It was only a quick flick through, honest, I don’t live in the past!

Once again, many thanks, this is all I need. Subsequent to my message I had an e-mail and phone call from another gentleman and scholar (another John), who has offered me a pair of Tanner wings and assured me that the model flies as well without gadgets as with them. This is my lucky day!

I have the Butterfly plan somewhere, and was watching Mick fly his larger DLG version at the Grantham GP. I was bequeathed some Aeromodellers, principally 1989 tiil the final issue, and enjoy flipping through them from time to time. Although I'm not living in the past (but I'd like petrol prices to be back at the 80s level), there is much interesting information to browse over.

Peter,
Your mention of the AM's took me back to this last Saturday at the Fall Lamperthiem "Modellbau Börse" (fiea market).  There was a stand with a whole slew of AM's from between '82 and '89 for sale, but the seller was not in sight! :'(

I wanted to buy the whole lot, but as I rode down with a cohort, I was not able to get back to the stand before we had to leave (it's the largest market in Germany).  Most of the issues still had the plans...

What a shame. To my mind the 80s was a classic era for the Aeromodeller, with some marvellous plans. The early 90s aren't bad but I feel that AM wasn't quite as good after ownership transferred from MAP to Nexus.

I love old model aircraft magazines, but the problem is that reading gets in the way of building, and I'm invariably tempted to do the former over a cuppa or pint Roll Eyes

I agree with Peetee - 80's AM was a good mag.
I enjoyed the Cowley era, too, short though it was.

Funny how time winnows and refines our opinions - time would prove that Dave was right, and I was wrong!

John
p.s. I still have the F1C in the picture.
