Error in "Use" Category
Hello,
The TSR-2 was a Strike Bomber, not a Fighter (as stated in use category). It would have been pretty epic to see what would have developed out of the TSR-2 project if it wasn't cancelled. I'm sure a fighter variant would have been very effective but I just wanted to point this out.

Re: Building a slightly modified version (58", 2-piece wing).
I have now had several flying sessions with it, and it is an absolute delight off a 2 kg-pull HiStart. It doesn't throw too well at 14 oz and a CG which is 1/8" forward of that recommended, making it over-stable, but on the light Hi-Start it is fantastic, going up absolutely straight and getting full height even in still air (18 paces of rubber, about 76 m of line). It'll get better as I move the CG back and reduce incidence, but in the meantime I'm getting lots of stick time for my rusty thumb. It is very sensitive to signalling thermal activity, and very manoueverable, as an HLG should be. Much more fun to fly than a clunky 2m such as my old but still active Spirit or my first RC glider, a Tom Williams Drifter Mk.1, and a quite different experience from the superb 3m Paragon I built 40 years ago. And it really is a very beautiful sailplane.

During my early throwing tests in a small meadow, it crashed loudly into the branches of a tree ... without the slightest mark. And I've had to bail out of several thermals, in danger of specking out.

Wrong photo
While the plan is for a D VII, the illustrating photo is a D VI

Gypsy Moth
Done correction.
Thanks.

Gypsy Moth
The plan is correctly referred to on the cover of the August 1930 M.A.N. as a 'D.H. Gypsy Moth'
It's NOT a Tiger
Plan: D.H Gypsy Mothhjf160250 on 19/07/2019 14:27
DH Moth
Incorrectly titled as DH Tiger Moth. It's a DH 60 Moth not a DH82 Tiger Moth. The article heading is correct by labelling it a 'DH Moth'.

Dimensions Wrong
This plan has wrong dimensions. Correct would be 38.2 in. / 97 cm

Your Voisin Canard model
Larry Nieman - what a fantastic building & covering job you have accomplished! Can you post
flying pictures? A "tip of the cap" for tackling a most difficult and challenging model, in
all respects!

Bambino 'diamond' fuselage
The question is a good one and here's my thoughts on the Bambino's 'diamond' fuselage. The designer, William Hadden, equipped the plane with 8 strands of 1/2" wide rubber strip. This is a big motor for a plane of this size and the motor, in addition to having a fairly sizable 'cross section', would impose significant compression/buckling forces on the fuselage when fully wound. The diamond fuselage is, IMO, a quick & easy solution, a close approximation to a cylindrical shell fuselage that would be structurally superior but requires more work to properly assemble. The Bambino can certainly be flown with less than 8 strands of 1/2" rubber and if so, a conventional 4-sided
fuselage, as you note, would be simpler to build, quite adequate to handle the lesser forces, and (properly sized) house the rubber motor.

diamond fuselage
Why does this simple design have a diamond fuselage?

Surely it begins to make things complex, with wire to hold up the wings and so on.

Is there something in this design that makes it better than a normal square style with two sides, and a top and a bottom?

Hi Dummy
[quote name='Gnu' id='2008' timestamp='20/06/2019 17:11']This model requires a Cox T.D. .020, NOT the .049. See plans.[/quote]

Thanks, done correction.

sorry for my typos
hey guys , sorry for my typos , i was wasted yesterday , if the tips don't make sense to you , let me know , i'll give'em a fix ;)
Plan: CannonballPaul-e on 20/06/2019 01:51
Engine size?
Why does the description say .049-.15 Engines? The plan clearly shows only a .020 Engine.

some tips
Several modification had been applied to the main fuselage , the battery bay is in a good as position , but it needs to be splitted in 3 parts, from this https://photos.app.goo.gl/qdUYfZjx299jKDKW8 to this https://photos.app.goo.gl/tSPr4Yo2qmdCRWcy5 .
the hole in the front fuselage doesn't need to be there anymore , you can cover it back ( actually you could even never have it done .. )
https://photos.app.goo.gl/BtEZNzm4hjFALDPs5
->https://photos.app.goo.gl/CvspYqyBtfYSTFmB7
. a couple of holes need to be created for let the battery/servos/ESC's wires go thru
https://photos.app.goo.gl/AjoVkaxJWvrqW3YW8
the elevator needs to be tougher, i did it with a metal paper clip
https://photos.app.goo.gl/dXykzUtNxsNw5rct5
here is a one of the first shots of the cockpit/radiators part splitted and almost done

velcro on the pit back and radiators front
https://photos.app.goo.gl/fAsDDxHduUbuQhiD6
owhh , i was just about to forget this ... 2 carbon bars, box section of 3x3 mm/ 0,1x0,1'' tickness are been applied on the top wing https://photos.app.goo.gl/gsRsQvToTDTohMrk6 and on the bottom wing , giving more rigidity https://photos.app.goo.gl/6anAVrPZ9g5QcNHF6
the first flight was not really happy , cuz she crashed on landing , the struts have to be more tught , so i made them new in light wood / balsa
https://photos.app.goo.gl/f6UjSiByLT3dStqDA
CG : 2.5' to me is not correct the airplane is a bit too much tail heavy , too nervous , my CG is about 2' - 2,2 max, she goes with a 3s 2200 Mah , the engine is a 1300 kw spinning an 8x6 prop , from the plan i downloaded my wingspan max is 31.5' / 80 cm , far less than 45 in. / 114.3 cm been declared ... ... it doesn't really matter to me , but you may better know if you are looking for that size of airplane , you may better increase the print size of your plan.
In the end the airplane is very great in the air , she looks very beautyfull, despiting 3D things ... simply not for her
thanks to Tony for his plan, I really like to built such airplane , I was missing a biplane on my collection
bye bye ;)

Sea Horse
I think the fuselage formers are missing, apart from that it´s all there. Of course some things you have to improvise. usually gets much easier to find solutions when you start seeing the plane taking shape in front of you. Not sure if I would risk this build...

Totally useless reply.
[quote name='young modellers' id='1992' timestamp='05/06/2019 08:02']If you two cared enough to look at the plan, you would find out that its complete and you should be completely able to build the plane out of this plan. (I'm not into hydroplanes, so I'm not gonna build it just to prove you wrong..)
