Westland Lysander 3 by:CoMIYC69
Airplane
Free-Flight

The Westland Lysander was a British army co-operation and liaison aircraft produced by Westland Aircraft used immediately before and during the Second World War.

This particular plan is from Easy-Build Models. That's the name of the company not the builder level ;)

You will find hundreds of plans on-line for this very popular plane. Like building the real thing. This particular plan is actually for a Master Builder. It's small, light and if you don't have $3-10,000 for a radial engine lying around this is really cheap ;) You can use and paint regular or tissue paper. This is a great plane for scaling yourself and building larger true to scale planes.

If you're a beginner you can still try this plan but I would recommended that you are at least very talented working with wood. Do't be turned off because it is difficult to build, you might not get it perfect but you will learn a lot about construction flight etc. with a little help. It can be really cheap and is still found in kit form some with die or laser cut parts.

The YouTube video below shows how to convert the similar Guillows kit to RC. Shouldn't be too difficult with today's micro-equipment. Interestingly this model can be used for display only, free flight, RC or control line.

Not sure why but I got the pdf with almost unreadable text. I'll post it up to the plan article.

Mosquito IV 24in     19/08/15 10:23:27pm

Mosquito IV 24in by:ron_hopping

The de Havilland DH.98 Mosquito was a British multi-role combat aircraft with a two-man crew that served during and after the Second World War. It was one of few operational front-line aircraft of the era constructed almost entirely of wood and was nicknamed "The Wooden Wonder".[4] [nb 1] The Mosquito was also known affectionately as the "Mossie" to its crews.[5] Originally conceived as an unarmed fast bomber, the Mosquito was adapted to roles including low to medium-altitude daytime tactical bomber, high-altitude night bomber, pathfinder, day or night fighter, fighter-bomber, intruder, maritime strike aircraft, and fast photo-reconnaissance aircraft. It was also used by the British Overseas Airways Corporation (BOAC) as a fast transport to carry small high-value cargoes to, and from, neutral countries, through enemy-controlled airspace.[6] A single passenger could be carried in the aircraft's bomb bay, which was adapted for the purpose.
Velie Monocoupe Airplane Free-Flight  

Velie Monocoupe by:CoMIYC69

Nice little In/Outdoor 1/22 scale flyer. Kit still available approximately £9.95 for the plan and £30 for the cut/molded parts.

About this plane:
The first Monocoupe was built in an abandoned church in Davenport, Iowa, and first flew on April 1, 1927. Various models were in production, more or less, continuously, from that time until the late 1940s. The Monocoupe Company went bankrupt in 1950.

The original Monocoupe design came from Don A. Luscombe's desire to build an enclosed two-place aircraft for business or person use, something lighter and more comfortable than open-cockpit biplanes. Luscombe was somewhat influenced by the Belgian Delmonty-Poncelet Limousine, a high-wing monoplane with a side-by-side enclosed cabin and the reverse curve rear fuselage lines that were to become one of the signature identifier features of the Monocoupes. Luscombe founded Central States Aero Company and hired Clayton Folkerts, a young self-taught designer. In 1928, the Mono 22 was the first light aircraft awarded an Aircraft Type Certificate (number 22) and in 1930 it was fitted with a Velie M-5 engine to become the Model 70.

Why do you want to build and fly this plane?
It's fun all year round! It's tough and relatively inexpensive to put together. It's still popular. It will help you observe the traits of flight and gliding. It's extremely popular. You may want to see how it flies before trying a larger scale of the model. Scaled as large as 1/3 scale!

The plans are clear and easy to follow. Great for the beginner and the seasoned modeller. If you're young and don't see the thrill, take a second look at these classics. If 'flying' is what you love this is a great plan for enthusiasts.

Check out the video of a 1/4 scale model that was scaled fro a rubber band model. This is a great progression for those honing their crafting skills.
